Coldglaze & Chinaglaze – Glazing & Restoration Systems
The Sylmasta Coldglaze PRO 2 and Sylmasta Chinaglaze glazing systems are trusted by museums and restoration experts to reglaze, restore and repair china, ceramics, pottery and other materials. They can also be used to repaint patterns, either through mixing with pigments or oil colours.
Coldglaze does not require the use of heat in the glazing process. Chinaglaze is a more traditional glazing system with a work time of 30 minutes when fired at 80°C. Sylmasta glazes are applied by hand brush or airbrush and cure to a hard, smooth finish with excellent non-yellowing qualities.
Please note that some of the products in the Glazing & Restoration range are classed as hazardous. As a result, they may be subject to additional costs when being shipped outside of Europe. If you attempt to place an order but no shipping cost is available, then please contact SylCreate and we will be able to advise.
Coldglaze PRO 2 System – Glaze without heat
The Coldglaze PRO 2 System does not require the use of heat in the glazing process, making it suitable for restoration and repair work on materials that may not take well to being fired. Coldglaze PRO 2 Gloss can be mixed with PT146 Thinners for application via airbrush, White Paste to create a white glaze, Retarder for improved adhesion and S532 Matting Agent to reduce the gloss finish.
When using Coldglaze to coat over other glazes, we recommend the use of a Barrier Coat to prevent Coldglaze from mixing with the existing glaze.
For detailed instructions on how to use Coldglaze PRO 2 and examples of what the system is capable of, please see our Showcase article on How to glaze china, ceramic and pottery like a pro.
Chinaglaze Low Temperature Glaze
Chinaglaze is a traditional glazing system with fast working properties. The low temperature glaze is fired at 80°C (176°F) for just 30 minutes, after which it gives an excellent hard gloss finish with high strength surface adhesion. It has a low odour when fired.
Chinaglaze can be mixed with HP733 Thinners for application via airbrush and S532 Matting Agent to reduce the gloss finish. To create a white glaze rather than clear, CGW White Paste can be added.
