FRITS - For glazes

ca: FRITA - D'esmalt.

es: FRITA - De esmalte.

Frits for glaze bodies. In the relationship between the thermal expansion of body and glaze, a glaze ideally should have an expansion that is slightly lower than the body so that contraction during cooling puts the glaze under compression and thus prevents crazing.
