are hueboards easy to maintain?

Smooth and glossy porcelain enamel markerboard is easy to clean, usually with very little rubbing effort and the unique hardness and abrasion resistance of porcelain enamel makes cleaning a snap!  Windex anyone?

For you super clean folks, sanitation is an inherent property of porcelain enamel. The hard dense surface is a barrier against odor and bacteria retention. The porcelain enamel itself is odorless, tasteless and non-toxic.  A perfect solution for hospitals and laboratorys.

Porcelain enamels are highly resistant to radiological and biological contamination and hueboards resist most common germicidal solutions and can be sterilized with live steam without damage.   Porcelain enamels also resist corrosive industrial atmospheres, salt, air, wind-driven gases and smoke.

how are hueboards manufactured?

Hueboards are made using a vitreous enamel, usually just called enamel or porcelain enamel.  Our hueboard surface is made by fusing powdered glass to metal surface by firing it in a kiln and the powder (frit) melts, flows, and then hardens to a smooth, gorgeous, and durable vitreous coating.

Porcelain enamel has many amazing properties: it is smooth, hard, chemically resistant, punch proof, durable, scratch resistant (5-6 on the Mohs scale), long-lasting color fastness, easy-to-clean, and cannot burn.   Enamel is glass, not paint, so it does not fade with UV light and works very well outdoors.our huge garaged sized kiln

The wear and chemical resistance properties of the enamel ensure that 'ghosting' or unerasable marks will not occur from normal use as they will with cheaper polymer boards.

Also since standard enamelling steel is magnetically attractive hueboards may also be used as magnet boards.
