Hallo,
I was searching for some german translatins of english expressions:

Whot does "light soda ash" meen chemicaly?

And, what is a liner-glaze?

There is a very good dictionary (http://dict.leo.org) from a university in germany, who took the dictionary of the kalkspatz
(www.kalkspatz.de) in to get ceramic expressions, but no anwers on these questions...

thanks!
Ralf

KBurger:
the chemical companies that make soda ash (sodium carbonate,
Na2CO3) produce several grades of this compound/chemical. In this context,
"light" means the nature of the recovered crystals -- they are "fluffy,
iregular" in shape, so the solid doesn't pack tightly, hence the term
light (a 20 kg bag would be bigger than a 20 kg bad of dense). chemically,
the commercial form of soda ash, both light and dense, is 58% Na2CO3 by
weight. other sodium and calcium salts make up the balance.
liner glaze is a "generic" term for the glaze used on the inside
of vessels to seal them. Often the white glaze used inside a mug is
similar in composition to the coloured glaze used on the outside. but the
white one is still called a liner glaze.

Hallo,

Here is what we have in "The Multilingual Dictionary of Pottery Words"
at: http://www.dinoclay.com/info/dict/index.html

I have never heard of "Light Soda Ash"


English Deutsch
Franšais

Soda ash Kaizinierte (wasserfreie) Cendre de
soude
Soda, Na2CO3

-Sodium carbonate -Natriumkarbonat, -Carbonate de
sodium
Na2CO3


-Washing soda - Kristallsoda, -Soude Ó
laver
Waschsoda Na2CO3.10H2O

Sodium bicarbonate Natriumhydrogencarbonat, Bicarbonate de soude
NaHCO3

In our dictionary there is nothing pertaining to "liner glaze".

Bernd Pfannkuche, editor of NEUE KERAMIK in Berlin published a few
years ago a dictionary, english/german and german/english containing
thousand
of words pertaining to ceramics:

"Ceramics and Earths/Keramik und Erden-Dictionary/W÷rterbuch"
and " Handbuch der Keramikbrenn÷fen".

There is no expression such as "liner glaze" in his dictionary but he
translates "liner" by Futter, Ausmauerung, Wandauskleidung.

You may in touch with him at:
ceramics-consult@t-online.de


A liner glaze is a food/beverage safe glaze to be put on the inside of pots
to be used to eat/drink.

Edouard, the last few times I ordered Soda Ash, it
said "Lite soda ash" on the bag. I did not notice it
being any different from our old soda ash.

Lite Soda ash is "less filling" and "tastes great". 1/3 fewer calories than
regular soda ash. I think it is made by the "Miller Brewing company"

Cheers,
