15 Series Opaque Glass Colors for Decal Application
The 15 Series offers lead-containing opaque glass colors used in ceramic decal application for the decoration of drinking glasses and container glasses.
Ferro’s 15 Series offers 28 opaque and resistant lead-containing colors formulated for use in container glass decoration via ceramic decals.
The colors of the 15 Series have excellent processing properties in all conventional decorating methods for decal application such as direct and indirect screen printing, spraying and brush application.
Our colors form a permanent coating that provides scratch resistance with high gloss and color. They also provide relatively high resistance to acids and alkalis, which is especially critical for drinking glass decoration.
For all standard application methods, Ferro offers a full range of suitable media and covercoats.
