Enamel is a layer of glass applied to certain objects. The reason why enamels are applied varies. For example, it can protect the object or it is used as an insulation layer. It is therefore often used to coat metal surfaces, such as pans, kitchen utensils and jewellery.

What is enamel?

Enamel is made by applying a layer of finely ground glass powder to a metal surface and then heating it. This process ensures a strong bond between the two materials. The glass layer then provides a durable and glossy finish.

Properties of enamel

Because enamel is resistant to scratches, stains and chemicals, it is a durable material. It is also heat-resistant, making it ideal for pans. In addition, bacteria cannot easily multiply on enamel. Which makes for a very hygienic surface!

Maintaining enamel

Although enamel is durable, it can crack under thermal shock. Therefore, keep the following points in mind to extend the life of your item with enamel.

  • Avoid thermal shock: sudden temperature changes can damage the enamel layer. For example a hot pan placed directly under the cold tap.
  • Avoid impact: enamelled items can crack if you bump it hard against another hard surface. Therefore, be careful when storing it.
  • Do not use abrasive materials: hard brushes or abrasive cleaners can damage the enamel coating.
