SPRINGTIME100 LEAD-FREE UNDERGLAZE COLORS
Ferro’s Springtime100 is the next generation lead-free color range designed for underglaze decoration of vitreous china, bone china, stoneware, porcelain and tiles.
The Springtime100 color range offers 17 highly pigmented lead-free shades that deliver an intense color palette used for underglaze ceramic decoration.
Springtime100 underglaze colors are lead-free and cadmium-free with controls in place to maintain upper limits of 100 ppm lead and 600 ppm cadmium. Ferro maintains and manages the heavy metal limit through careful monitoring of raw materials combined with accurate processing and continuous, precise quality control.
Acid and alkali resistance of the underglaze decoration created with Springtime100 colors is determined by the type of glaze used. For decorating tableware that comes into contact with food, Ferro supplies lead-free glazes and frits for vitreous china, bone china and earthenware.
Colors in the Springtime100 series have excellent processing properties in all conventional decorating methods including direct and indirect screen printing, spraying, machine lining and banding, and brush application.
Ferro also offers a full range of suitable media and covercoats designed for use with all standard decorating methods.
