LEAD-FREE CERAMIC DECORATING COLORS FOR BETTER DESIGNS
Colors in the 741 Series for inglaze decoration are lead-free with controls in place to maintain upper limits of 600 ppm lead and 100 ppm cadmium with the following exceptions:
- Lead-containing colors: 127414, 127415
- Cadmium-containing colors: 137412, 137413, 177411 ,177413, 177414H
It is recommended that 741 Series colors are applied on lead and cadmium-free glazes to prevent unleaded colors from being contaminated due to some chemical reactions.
Ferro maintains and manages the heavy metal limit through careful monitoring of raw materials combined with accurate processing and continuous precise quality control.
All 741 series colors are intermixable, however, it is recommended to test the color stability under individual conditions before batch printing.
