Ferro’s media used in direct printing exhibit good dispersion with optimally adjusted viscosities specifically for pad printing.  Printing pastes formulated with our media provide the ability to create designs with a high proportion of color and intensity for in-glaze and onglaze decoration of smooth surfaces, including porcelain and ceramics, and underglaze decoration of bisque surface, such as bone china, vitro‐porcelain and earthenware.
