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.

Vice President, Europe and Performance Coatings

“We have made solid progress with water-based and water-compatible ink formulations with our H-PLUS and DG Inks,” said Julio Garcia, Vice President, Performance Coatings at Ferro. “We believe the work we do with Zschimmer & Schwarz will result in new solutions that will shape the 4.0 generation of environmentally-friendly digital inks.”
