window displays surface tension factors used by MATRIX to
calculate the surface tension of glazes. Surface tension refers
to qualities of the glaze in its molten state.
glaze with a low surface tension quickly creeps into narrow
crevices or porous surfaces. The phenomenon is called "wetting"
and is similar to the action of a thin liquid like petrol
which can wet a material on which water would stand as globules.
Water has a higher surface tension than petrol.'" - Hamer
or viscous glazes tend to have high surface tensions while
the surface tension of runny or fluid glazes tends to be low.
surface tensions are automatically calculated by MATRIX in
recipe and formula process.
