Tin Oxide (Stannic Oxide)



SKU: N/A Category:


Tin oxide has long been used to opacify glazes in oxidation at all temperatures.

Tin is also a player in the development of ceramic colors, for example chrome tin pinks and maroons. Tin with iron in oxidation makes a warmer shade of brown than zirconium does.

Tin can react with titanium and rutile to transform the color and character of a glaze.  Although tin oxide is a little more expensive, very little is required to produce stunning effects in many colored glazes.
