Azurico Brilliant Blue Resistant Onglaze Colors
Ferro offers Azurico resistant low metal release brilliant blue onglaze colors for porcelain, bone china, and earthenware.
The Azurico onglaze color range offers two blue shades that provide relatively high resistance to acids and alkalis. In laboratory tests and under industrial conditions on various substrates, the Azurico colors show no visible acid attack, but a slight alkali attack.
Azurico colors can be applied in thicker layers, making them especially suitable for screen printing and spray application. Machine lining and banding decoration methods as well as hand painting are also possible with these colors, depending on the design used.
Ferro also supplies a full range of media and covercoats suitable for all standard application methods.
