French term or phrase: calcin
I'm working on a translation about glass and, specifically, the "calcin" content of glass. I've searched everywhere I can think of for a translation of the French "calcin" but no luck! Does anyone know if it stays the same in English or if there is an equivalent specific English term?
Thank you!
