|ACID RESISTANCE||ALKALI RESISTANCE|
|ASTM C 724 (10% citric acid and 3.7% HCl ,20±2℃, 15 min.)||ASTM C 1203 (10% NaOH ,95±3℃, 2h)|

758 Series flat glass enamels provides 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 this system do not contain voluntary additions of heavy metals–lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg) and hexavalent chromium (Cr6+). Exceptions are the cadmium green, yellow and red (marked *) which need to use cadmium pigments to provide the color tones required by the market.
For lead-free and cadmium free colors, the amount of lead, hexavalent chromium (Cr6+) , and mercury is less than 1000 ppm; the cadmium amount is less than 100 ppm .
Our flat glass enamels are developed and controlled for the following application processes:
- Direct screen Printing
- Roller coating
