Ferro offers the VN System of lead-free container glass enamels suitable for most chemical compositions used in the production of soda-lime glass bottles.

Intermixable Colors for Limitless Possibilities
VN System container 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 of red or yellow cadmium-containing colors (as marked*) with any other colors. 

Our container glass enamels from all systems can be provided in the following forms:
  • Powder form
  • Water-friendly pastes for conventional and electrostatic spraying
  • Oil-based liquid pastes for cold screen-printing
  • Thermoplastic pastes for multi-color hot screen printing
  • Mediums suitable for all applications can also be provided


Colors in the VN System do not contain voluntary additions of heavy metals that include lead, cadmium, mercury and hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), with the exceptions of the cadmium-containing green, yellow and reds (as marked * below). These use cadmium pigments in order to achieve any applicable market-required color tones.
