The Carnival100 series color range offers 23 shades for onglaze ceramic decoration and four supplementary cadmium colors, designed for a firing range from 800 °C (normal firing) up to 950 °C (fast firing). These colors offer optimum color brilliance as well as mechanical and chemical resistance at general firing temperatures from 850 to 900 °C.
Carnival100 ceramic colors are lead-free and cadmium-free with controls in place to maintain upper limits of 100 ppm lead and 600 ppm cadmium. Our cadmium-containing supplementary colors are lead-free. Ferro maintains and manages the heavy metal limit through careful monitoring of raw materials combined with accurate processing and continuous, precise quality control.
