Glaze Products by Milton Bridge

Milton Bridge has a long history of manufacturing glaze. Our process facilities include wet and dry process ball mills, wet and dry process sieves, lab and industrial power mixers and blending equipment.

Whilst we have had some historical standard product ranges, we have as with many other products built up a vast database of recipes based on individual product matching. We have selected recipes in order to offer you a glaze portfolio that comprises of stoneware, earthenware, raku and different special effect glazes.

Our new product range is delivered in standard unit sizes, in either prepared brush on liquid or dry powder. However we are able to provide any of the following products in larger commercial quantities and delivered in a form to suit you be it powdered, slop, spray etc.

Milton Bridge has a long history of manufacturing high quality glazes for the local, semi-industrial ceramics market.

During this time we have built up a vast database of products that are designed to meet the demanding standards of this market.

We are now pleased to offer a selection of these industry standard glazes in both powder and brush on liquid to the craft, hobby and education markets.

Quality:

All of our coloured earthenware glazes are produced using a high quality, industry standard frit base.

Our frit is produced in an ISO 9001: 2000 accredited facility.

Our manufacturing process has full batch to batch traceability from raw material procurement through to processed finished colour.

Each batch of our frit is subject to lead determination tests to ensure that it does not exceed 0.1% PbO.

Application:

Our powder glazes can be applied using a variety of methods. Both hand and automated dipping and spraying techniques can be used with proper use of flocculants and deflocculants.

Our brush on glazes are supplied ready to use in a high quality brushing medium that also offers excellent suspension properties and shelf life.
