Vitreous enamel products, a.k.a. porcelain enamel products, are extremely durable, hygienic, and eco-friendly. Please find the below advantages of enamel products.
Tough. Durable. Versatile.
Vitreous enamel products will not rust, are resistant to chemical attack, abrasion and fire as well as being more durable than any other architectural cladding or industrial coating. Their versatility enables custom designs of all shapes and dimensions, the use of graphics and logos as well as a virtually unlimited color range.
VE panels are totally non-combustible. They will neither ignite nor burn and will, depending on the design and the nature of the backing materials, provide fire ratings of a minimum of two hours. Higher fire ratings can be achieved.
Porcelain enamel on steel used for exterior surfaces is unaffected by sun, rain, snow, dust, or industrial atmospheres. The color is permanent and will not oxidize, fade peel, or blister. Shades of red, orange, and yellow, usually the most fugitive in the color spectrum, are unaffected by the sun.
VE surfaces refuse graffiti, scratches, and stains. The panel color and images will not fade with age. Consider installing panels in high traffic areas such as metro stations, airport terminals, and roadway tunnels. VE panels can also enhance the space aesthetically while defending off vandalism.
The production of VE products is an environmentally friendly process that does not involve harmful substances. They are made from non-toxic materials including glass and steel. Materials are not harmful to the environment and are recyclable. The VE coating increases the lifespan of the original steel many times thereby reducing waste and the number of times the steel needs to be reprocessed. VE products release no toxic fumes.
Lower Maintenance Costs
Vitreous enamel panel is very low maintenance. The surface is completely impervious to contaminants, extremely smooth, and extremely low static, preventing dust adhesion and resulting in only minimal cleaning required.
High Chemical Resistance
Porcelain enamel products are resistant to acid and alkali chemicals. The surface is completely impervious to contaminants, extremely smooth, and extremely low static, preventing dust adhesion and resulting in only minimal cleaning requirements.
High Resistance to Abrasion
Porcelain Enamel coatings provide excellent abrasion and wear resistance. It provides a permanent lifetime finish in an unusually broad spectrum of colors and hues. Pigments used are primarily inorganic compounds fused into the glass matrix and are extremely stable during aging.
The resistance of vitreous enameled steel to impact and distortion under extreme conditions provides further significant safety advantages in applications such as tunnels and claddings in public areas.
