  • Description: <jats:title>ABSTRACT</jats:title><jats:p>Additions of small amounts of sodium silicate to certain types of enamel slips has a deflocculating effect and thus greatly improves their draining properties. One‐quarter of 1% of the weight of the frit was found most satisfactory. Additions up to 1/2% were, not deleterious.</jats:p><jats:p>The wet weight per unit area method for control of enamel consistency is not at all reliable. Dry weight per unit area is the only accurate method for controlling the consistency of wet‐coat enamels.</jats:p>
