So? Have the bugs been ironed out yet? Can I stop hoarding my supply?

Cheers,

Bob

Hi Bob,

To hoard, or not to hoard?

We are still tinkering, so no news yet on a new formula. (I know, Lani previously mentioned in her blog that we were pretty close, but she underestimated the rigor of the product development testing protocol. Or she is overly optimistic. Probably both.)

Meanwhile, we have limited stock on hand (in sheet glass) which we (and our dealers) will sell ONLY with this disclaimer:

"Bullseye decided to discontinue the production of Dense White 000313 sheet glass in 2008. We did this partially because the glass can be unstable when subjected to extended heat work. The glass can perform correctly, but firing it above 1500°F/815°C for more than 15 minutes or firing slowly between 1250°F/677°C and 1500°F/815°C may result in an unstable glass."

I hope this helps.

Will the new dense white product have the wonderful reactive qualities of the old version?
Thanks

Hi Jan,

Until we have committed to a new formula, I don't think we can swear that it is going to react or look exactly the same, but we completely understand that you all love how that glass behaves. Having the glass look the same but making it more stable under extreme or long heat is the goal.

I can start a thread that we can use as a list.
