Oxides & Colorants

"An oxide which promotes ceramic fusion by interaction with other oxides. The oxides which are usually referred to as fluxes are the alkaline oxides because they interact with the glass-forming silica. Fluxes are monoxides with chemical formulae in the R2O and RO group. The acceptable exceptions are the sesquioxides: boron oxide and bismuth oxide. Fluxes are introduced as monoxides, dioxides, carbonates, and other compounds. Silicates using R2O and R2O3 fluxes soften slowly. Silicates involving RO fluxes tend to soften more quickly."
