Product Inquiry

The Orchid onglaze color range offers nine colors that show brilliant, reddish colors with high consistency in the recommended firing range, while providing relatively high resistance to acids and alkalis. In laboratory tests and under industrial conditions on various earthenware, bone china and porcelain bodies, the colors of the Orchid series show only a very slight alkali attack.

Orchid colors have excellent processing characteristics in all conventional decorating methods that include direct and indirect screen printing, lining and banding, spraying, and hand painting.

Ferro also supplies a full range of media and covercoats suitable for all standard application methods.
