83CL Series glass enamels are also intermixable, which allows decorators to mix and match their own shades for optimal productivity with minimal inventory.
It is recommended to perform preliminary tests before launching production with color mixtures from this system, especially for combinations with cadmium-containing colors (as marked*) with any other colors.
Versicolor 83CL Series colors do not contain voluntary additions of heavy metals that include lead, cadmium, mercury and hexavlant chromium (Cr6+), with the exceptions of the cadmium-containing pigments (as marked* below). These colors use cadmium pigments needed to achieve any applicable market-required color tones.
