FERRO PARTNERS WITH ZSCHIMMER & SCHWARTZ
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INQUIRY. OUR TEAM WILL BE CONTACTING YOU SHORTLY.
FOCUSING ON 4.0 ECO-FRIENDLY DIGITAL CERAMIC INKS INNOVATION
Ferro, a global leader in the manufacture of frits, glazes, pigments and inks for ceramic tile, and Zschimmer & Schwarz, a leading global producer of chemical additives, in January 2019 formed an innovation partnership focused on full digital application of water-based inks.
As the worldwide ceramics market places growing interest in eco-friendly technologies, Ferro and Zschimmer & Schwarz are working on optimizing water-based ink formulations for efficient application with current-day digital printing machinery printheads.
The companies expect to identify specific technical requirements of ink products through extensive dialog with manufacturers of digital printing machinery. They also plan to work on joint development of new inks and providing technical teams to support customers with application support as new-generation water-based ink products are developed.
