Ferro usually won't tell you what's in them and they will deny they make stuff with certain elements in them. Essentially, frits are silicates with metallic and non metallic oxides glommed onto the silica.

Lead Monosilicate is a frit rendering lead into a condition where you can handle it with no ill effects. It is not a cure all. I suspect Ferro makes encapsulated stuff but will deny it. I am quite sure they did that for the portland shops.

Glomm is a technical term.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
