Strontium carbonate serves as a flux in glazes, enhancing their resistance to crazing and scratching. It shares similarities with calcium and can be used as an alternative to barium carbonate.
- Fluxing Agent: Strontium carbonate acts as a flux in ceramic glazes, improving their ability to melt and fuse during firing.
- Crazing Resistance: The addition of strontium carbonate to glazes helps reduce the occurrence of crazing, enhancing the overall durability and longevity of ceramic pieces.
- Scratch Resistance: Glazes containing strontium carbonate exhibit improved scratch resistance, providing a protective barrier and preserving the surface integrity of ceramic objects.
- Barium Carbonate Alternative: Strontium carbonate can be used as an alternative to barium carbonate, offering similar effects in glazes without the potential health and environmental concerns associated with barium compounds.
