Salt Fired Titanium
Plus shipping & handling
What if you salt fired Titanium?
Salt firing is a ceramic vapor-glazing process where salt (sodium chloride) is introduced into a kiln firebox at high temperature(+/-2400F/1300C). The salt vaporizes, and sodium vapor combines with silica in the clay, forming an extremely hard sodium-silicate glaze.
OR a very thick brittle oxide(?) layer forms on Titanium and flakes off. Oooops! A failure or a revealing study? A curiosity at least!
