Product Inquiry

The Sunshine onglaze color range offers 24 shades that provide relatively high resistance to acids and alkalis. In laboratory tests and under industrial conditions on various earthenware, vitreous china, bone china and porcelain bodies, the colors of the Sunshine series show only a very slight alkali attack.

Sunshine 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.
