Porcelain / Vitreous Enamels
Prince’s PEMCO® brand of performance coatings are manufactured around the globe in our state-of-the-art facilities utilizing the latest technologies. The PEMCO® product range is recognized as being synonymous with high-quality, tailor-made enamel product solutions backed by global technical service.
Industry leading and expansive range of high-quality products
Vitreous enamel, also called porcelain enamel, is made by fusing powdered glass to a metal substrate by firing, resulting in decorative and functional surfaces. The enamel powder melts, flows, and then hardens to a smooth, durable coating. Frits are the basis and main component of an enamel coating.
Each PEMCO® enamel frit is individually designed to address the complex variables of chemistry and end use application. Quality raw materials are blended and melted to create a frit technically adapted for different applications and available in various forms.
Dedicated and specialized technical expertise
Prince has dedicated innovation centers and technical service personnel to assist customers in their own factories with achieving consistent, high-quality output, and increasing productivity. Prince can provide porcelain enamels that fulfil all existing standards (ISO, EN & ASTM) and national legislations and actively participates in the standardization commissions on porcelain enamel, regionally and globally. Prince can fully characterize porcelain enamels including analytical, physical properties, and chemical resistance.
Prince’s frit smelting plants are among the most advanced in the world
Prince is proud to be the only remaining independent porcelain enamel smelter in the USA. Additional production sites are located in Latin America and Europe, including the Bruges center of excellence, with additional technology centers and warehouses in Mexico, China, and Brazil.
From world-class raw materials and ISO accredited production facilities to global presence and process knowledge, Prince develops product solutions for all porcelain enamel needs.
Innovative and sustainable
Prince continues to be the front runner in porcelain / vitreous enamel innovation with the latest technological improvements to its POESTA® electrostatic powders. The advantages of electrostatic powders include automated application, reduction of hazardous waste, lower energy consumption for milling and drying and labor costs in mill room and set up, excellent finish quality, and maximized utilization of material.
Prince now offers the exclusive “Nano-clean” coating – an easy-to-clean topcoat for the appliance market.
Prince’s continued innovation has led to the development of Ecomail™, a new generation of more environmentally friendly and sustainable enamel products. Ecomail™ is a patent-pending product developed to provide functionality and performance while being free of cobalt and nickel.
