Ferro engobe formulations allow for many possibilities in decorative colors and textures of the whole tile. Our engineered specialty colored engobes offer a full palette of options that provide improved overall tile shade. We provide engobes produced with titanium and zirconium for obtaining white shades and optimum body covering results.
Our GL glazes can be formulated to provide special characteristics to glazed surfaces such as: resistance, transparence, depth, smoothness, gloss, cleaning easiness, and color development.
The powder product aspect is obtained through a wet milling process in mills coated in sintered alumina and dried through suitable spray dryers. The milling residue is under 0.2% on a 45 micron sieve.
Specialty colored fumés are developed to reduce sedimentation problems and make the brushing procedure more efficient where applicable. Colored fumés do not create separation problems and consequent shade changes during industrial use.
Ferro provides two different product lines allowing endless chromatic variations:
- FL for smoother surfaces
- MS/F suitable for matt and rough surfaces to enhance the natural appearance of tile structures
