|Testing & Safety
Firing conditions vary. Although all glazes
are tested before shipping, it is essential that you test fire all
glazes (stock or custom) in your kiln and your firing environment
before using them in production. Laguna’s liability is strictly
limited to the replacement of defective material.
Wear proper safety equipment when interacting with dry clays, glazes
and other ceramic materials. This should include, but not be limited
to, a NIOSH-approved respirator. Always read the Material Safety Data
Sheet (MSDS) on the ceramic materials you purchase.
Due to the inherent organic rheology of liquid
glazes, settling or gelling can occur over a period of time. We recommend
you rotate stock and use most glazes within 8 to 12 months.
