The basic principles of the POESTA powder electrostatic technology used by enameling enterprises in Ukraine are examined and the requirements for powders and protective glass-enamel coatings are presented. The current problems arising in the synthesis of glass enamel for POESTAare analyzed. The results of investigations of the development and application of single-frit nickel-free glass-enamel coatings used for the purposes indicated are presented.
