• COE: 90 Compatible
Candy apple red with slight variance in transparency.
Torch: This style may not reveal (or strike to) its target color until fired. Consistent color. Keep transparent by using it in small amounts with minimal heatwork, or adding it towards the end of the time in the flame. We advise labeling all striking glasses.
Kiln: A cadmium/selenium glass. Generally fires deeper (more red) than cold sheet. “Catspaw" effect disappears on firing.
This style is not suitable for kilncasting because it can opalize and/or become incompatible when held at high temperatures for an extended period. It may also opalize and/or become incompatible in instances where processes exceed the parameters of the test for compatibility. Testing recommended when heatwork exceeds these parameters.
Rods are pulled from re-melted Bullseye Compatible sheet glass. Rod is sold in lengths of approximately 18in. (450 mm) and 4-6mm in diameter. Bullseye rods are graded either as F (recommended for both kilnwork and torchwork) or T (recommended for torchwork only).
