As experiments with materials and process by some users of enamel are pushed to the extremes searching for new “effects”, please understand that Thompson Enamel does not guarantee any use of its products outside the “stated definition” and/or “intended use” of those products. The definition and intended use of each Thompson Enamel product is clearly stated on our website. For any questions, please read “Enameling Help”. You may also call 859-291-3800 if you have questions about the “definition” or “intended use” of any product. Thompson Enamel works very hard towards providing premium products with many quality control checks throughout the manufacturing process. It is however, important to pre-test enamels prior to using; printed and electronic color charts do not always perfectly match the product they represent and there may be slight variations in the character of any enamel from batch to batch. Thompson Enamel will not refund or replace any product that Thompson Enamel upon examination determines that the product in question meets Thompson Enamel’s quality standard, product definition and stated intended use.
