Enamel is glazed steel
The Vitreous Enamel plates combine the strength of steel with the chemical durability of glass.
Enamel is a chemical coating that is sprayed on the steel plates, after which they are baked at a temperature of over 800Cº. This burns the enamel on to the steel.
Mohs hardness scale (to the right) is used to identify the material’s relative hardness, where one indicates the lowest hardness and ten the maximum hardness.
The enamel surface is, measured on the Mohs hardness scale, the level just before the gemstone and has a far more resistant surface than both aluminium and steel with e.g. a lacquered surface.
