Ferro offers the highest purity dental pigments with a full palette of stains for dental ceramics that meet the most stringent requirements for heavy metal content and radioactivity.
The chromaticity offered by our dental pigments provides extremely high flexibility in dental ceramic coloring. To achieve a natural appearance in dental ceramics, Ferro dental pigments cover a complete spectrum from opaque to transparent in different color intensities and shades that include yellow via brown, pink, and blue.
Color strength can be customized by adjusting the quantity of pigment used enabling a full color space.
OUTSTANDING PIGMENT PURITY
All of our dental ceramic pigment products have been developed specifically to fulfill the highest purity, color, aesthetics, and biocompatibility standards required for use in dental ceramic applications.
Our zircon-based dental pigments show greatly reduced radioactivity with an order of magnitude lower than natural zircon raw materials. In addition, only high purity silica is added as an adjustment material to avoid any contamination.
DENTAL PIGMENT PROPERTIES
- Cadmium-free with an aggregate heavy metals content (Pb, Cd, As, Sb) of less than 300 ppm.
- Sieve residue of less than 1% on a 45 µm sieve.
- Zircon stain particle size distribution: d50 values of about 10 µm; d90 values of about 15 µm.
- Particle size of all other stains include: d50 values of about 5 µm; d90 values of about 10 µm.

FERRO DENTAL PIGMENT COLORS
All colorimetric values are measured in an opaque fast firing glaze with 3% pigment addition against standard. The specified limits are delta L < 1, delta < 1 and delta b < 1.
