Sheet steel for porcelain enameling is chemically constituted and suitably processed for the fabricating and enameling requirements of articles for vitreous coating. This product is generally produced in three types: Type I, II, and III. Type I has an extremely low–carbon level commonly produced by decarburizing in an open coil process. This material is suitable for direct cover coat and also for ground and cover coat enameling practice. It has good sag resistance and good formability. Type II has moderately low carbon and manganese levels. This material is suitable for ground and cover coat applications. The chemical composition for Type II can be varied to provide either maximum resistance to sag or good formability. Sheet steel for porcelain enameling can be produced to stretcher level standard of flatness, re–squared or sheared into circles or sketches. Type III is a titanium stabilized ultra–low carbon product.
