Jordan, I agree. I'm a simple glass artist sort of turned chemist who just looks at the dog and pony show. I admit to trying to make an income in my dotage but this is a major issue that should be looked through.

SP87 as it sits is a remarkably benign glass for studio work. It is loose and sloppy which the goblet makers love. Mine is fat and polishes which I seem to like but who cares about that.

I think people want glass that doesn't give them grief in one way or another.
Actually , that's not hard. Currently Cristalica has no alumina in it. Why is that?
It won't last as currently formulated.
