Ceramic decoration decals that are stored for long periods become harder and more brittle, which leads to difficulties during processing.  Decorating with ceramic decals that have been treated with soaking agents makes the decals much easier to transfer to substrates than aged decals.

Using Ferro Soaking Agent 80 650 revives old ceramic decoration decals that have become unsuitable for decorative purposes, enabling brittle decals to become flexible again.

Adding 3‐4 % of Ferro Soaking Agent 80 650 to decal soaking water for approximately 15 minutes regenerates older ceramic decals. Ceramic decals become flexible again and can be processed like newly printed decals.

Ferro Soaking Agent 80 650 is gradually absorbed by the covercoat on the decal, rendering it very flexible. This process involves soaking the decals for at least 15 minutes. As decals absorb the soaking agent from the water, content of the soaking agent in the water gradually decreases.

Best results are achieved by changing the soaking agent and water solution completely at regular intervals.
