SAMBA100 Lead-Free Onglaze Colors
Ferro’s SAMBA100 is the next generation lead-free color range designed for onglaze decoration of vitreous china, earthenware and enamel.
The SAMBA100 color range offers 37 highly pigmented lead-free shades including four cadmium colors that deliver an intense color palette used for onglaze ceramic decoration. These colors show relatively high acid and alkali resistance with the exception of Cobalt Blue 12 1654, which is slightly more vulnerable.
SAMBA100 onglaze decoration colors are lead-free and cadmium-free with controls in place to maintain upper limits of 100 ppm lead and 600 ppm cadmium.
The cadmium containing 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.
