VNB System lead-free Container Glass Enamels
The VNB System is Ferro's lead-free color range of glass enamels available in North America for the decoration of pharmaceutical and scientific glass packaging.
VNB glass enamels provide general moderate chemical resistance with the following properties of the Base Frits:
Citric Acid Resistance (ASTM C‐724); 3‐4
Detergent Resistance (DTM 75); 3‐4
Alkali Resistance (DTM 63); 7
VNB System container glass enamels are an intermixable color palette that can be blended with other intermediates within the color series, resulting in the widest possible color range. This allows decorators to mix and match their own shades for optimal productivity with minimal inventory.
Colors in the VNB System do not contain voluntary additions of heavy metals that include lead, cadmium, mercury, and hexavalent chromium (Cr6+).
Gold-bearing pigments are needed to achieve some color tones required by the market. It is recommended that preliminary tests be performed prior to launching production with color mixtures utilizing gold-bearing glass enamels (marked*).
