coating to keep lables from being burned off when fusing/slumping bottles with lables.
Is anyone aware of a product that can be applied to screened on labels on beer and/or wine bottes to keep them from buring off when fused/slumped.
Thanks much for any info you can provide.
I am not aware of such a product – but then I am on the other side of the Atlantic and therefore disadvantaged. These will have been printed on and – if enameled – heated, but to low temperatures – probabley below forming temps. You could try a low temperature slump with the enamel down to the shelf (as the shelf side is often cooler than the top). All you can do is test.

hopefully you have found out by now but if not then maybe this will help out some,I don’t yet fuse any bottles but I did know someone that does a lot of it and she said that she soaked the labels and removed them she would replace them after the fusing was done and then coat them so they were waterproof on the bottles,she made them into wine-bottle cheese boards,the skinny part was the handle she also made the utensils to go with it,hope this helps,
