Boron in Ceramics

In China in the 10th century AD, borax was used in ceramic enamel and glazes. Enamels and glazes are the thin vitreous coating fused to a ceramic or metallic base in tiles, sanitary ware, bone china, porcelain etc. Today, such coating material is called “frit”. Boron is still used in modern ceramics to ensure a good fit between the glaze and the clay and to increase durability and shine. Borates have also recently been added to tile bodies to lower energy use during production.
