GLAZE STAINS
  Stains should be added in quantities of 2-10 % in glaze or 1-5 % in bodies , slips, and engobes, according to strength of colour required.

An addition of 5% to glaze or 2% to a body, slip and engobes will in general give colours of medium intensity. It should be noted that the precise shades vary with firing temperatures and type of glaze or body used. Some colours can be intermixed between each range, but to avoid technical difficulties in application, it is advised that only colours from the same composition could be mixed together.
The products are available in packs 250 gram, 1 kg, 5 kgs, 10 kgs and bucket 50 kgs.

UNDERGLAZE HIGH TEMPERATURE
  AMARIN Liquid Underglaze Colours (High Temp.)
Brilliant, ready-to-use colours, add water if needed. The colours are used for brush painting, spraying on greenware or biscuit before applying a covering glaze.
For opaque coverage by brushing, the consistency of the colour in the jar is correct. Since the colours are approximately the same tone before and after firing, the effectiveness of colour combinations and blending is observed as the painting progresses.
The transparent covering glazes are applied on decorated greenware or bisque shapes, and the pieces fired to the maturing temperature of the glaze. The colours are given great success in firing between 1000-1300 °C.

AMARIN Powder Underglaze Colours (High Temp.)
The colours should be mixed with a suitable water based media such as underglaze media P-526, P-520, P-571 or P-533.

Product packaging: Liquid Form are in bottles 100 gram, 500 gram and buckets 5 kgs.and 25 kgs.

OVERGLAZES
 

The decorating colours can be applied to earthenware, bone china, and vitreous china by all techniques such as painting, edging, spraying, and screen printing. The colours are fired onto the temperature between 700-800 °C depending on the glaze and firing conditions. On porcelain, the maximum firing temperature is limited to 800-820 °C due to the resistance of the cadmium colours No 150, 151 and 152.

For screen printing, we recommend the following oil mediums:
      - Direct screen printing medium No. 25450, screen printing medium, oily
      - Indirect screen printing medium No. 25810, screen printing medium for intensive colour prints, suitable for surface and half tone printing, normal drying.
 
The products are available in powder. We also provide the onglaze colours in liquid form, water base for painting which contain in bottle 100 gram, 250 gram, 1 kg and 5 kgs.

SPECKLES
The speckles derived from the controlling particle sizes of the stains. Speckle should be added to the glaze or to the screen printing paste by simple stirring.
      - sanitary ware and art ceramics: simple stirring of the glaze slip;
      - tile : mixing with the glaze slip or with the screen printing paste or application by sprinkling.
Depending on the desired effect, one or more different coloured speckles may be added.
Please note that grinding will destroy the speckle effect:
 
  They can be added to the AMARIN underglaze colours liquid or powder and mix with underglaze media P-520

PRECIOUS METAL PREPARATIONS

Bright/Burnish Precious Metal Preparations are vanish-like organic compounds containing precious metals, combined with flux components based on organic metal compounds. The flux compounds act as adhesion promoters.
These preparations also contain resin solutions as film formers. On a smooth surface, a high-gloss precious metal film forms after firing. According to the colour shade of the fired product, a differentiation is made between:

   

    - Bright Gold, which develops a typical reddish-yellow gold shade after firing, and contains a small proportion of silver.Preparation has a fine gold content of 6% to 15%. Preparations with a fine gold content of less than 6% are designated as lustres.
    - Bright Platinum and Bright Palladium, which fire to a white-gold shade, achieved by formation of an Au/Pt or Au/Pd alloy.Preparations have a combined precious metal content (gold, platinum and Palladium) of 3% to 12%.

A dull precious metal film is formed after firing, which develops a satin surface by subsequent burnishing with a glass fiber brush, sand, or other compacting materials. Burnish PM Preparations are classified as matt preparations and are subdivided into:
    - Burnish Gold, which often contains a small portion of silver in addition to gold, enabling the colour shade to be varied from reddish-yellow to yellow to greenish-yellow, through the formation of alloys. Preparation have a fine gold content of 12% to 40%.
    - Burnish Platinum and Burnish Palladium, which fire to a white gold shade achieved by the formation of a Au/Pt or Au/Pd alloy. Preparation also contain platinum and/or palladium.

Preparations to be applied by spray gun, brush and hand stamping require low viscosity, while those processed by screen printing or other mechanical application methods require high viscosity. Bright PM/Burnish PM Preparation are generally supplied ready for use. If desired, suitable thinning oils can be added to adjust the viscosity.

Firing conditions depend on the type of body to be decorated. As the organic compounds in the preparation decompose during firing, good ventilation of the kiln (surplus of oxygen in the kiln atmosphere) must be assured during the entire process, at least up to 500 °C.

Firing conditions common in the ceramic industry:
      - Earthenware      700-780 °C
      - Tile                       750-900 °C
      - Porcelain            780-840 °C
      - Bone China        750-800 °C

Storage: Should be stored in a cool and dry place, please note that bright precious metal preparations have a shelf life of 12 months.

Packing: Preparation are supplied in the following packing sizes:
Special packing sizes of less than 1 kg (10 gram,100 gram) are available upon request.

 
GOLD PASTE

The product range offers innovative, high quality bright precious metal preparations for indirect screen-printing applications on porcelain and earthenware with the advantages are:

  • Brilliant firing results
  • Problem-free processing (indirect screen-printing with skim-coat)
  • Easy screen cleaning
  • No strong or overpowering odour
  • Very good compatibility with decorating colours, and stability with covercoats
Colour: Yellow
Delivery: Ready-to-use pastes, packing: 250 gram
Processing: Indirect screen printing (transfers)
Screen: Polyester 120 S (305 mesh/inch) or stainless steel VA 350 calendered
Thinner: DH-26
Screen Cleaner: 25216
Cover coat: 440Y, 440C


Application:

To obtain optimal firing results, the transfer should be fixed very carefully on to the substrate (using a squeegee or a soft cloth), especially when decorating curved or relief forms. The transfer must not be stretched too much. Any water residue on the decorated transfer is to be avoided.

Firing:
The firing conditions depend on the type of body to be decorated. In general, the organic compounds in the preparation evaporate during firing. Therefore, good ventilation of the kiln must be assured during the entire firing process, or at least up to 500 °C.
Recommended Firing Temperatures
      - Porcelain:         780-840 °C (normal firing)
                                     860-900 °C (fast firing)
      - Earthenware:   700-780 °C

Storage: Should be stored in a cool, dry place. Shelf life of 6 months should not be exceeded.

LUSTERS

Lusters are vanish-like preparations, based on metal and/or precious metal containing organic compounds, with resin solutions as film former. When fired on porcelain, earthenware, enamel, tiles, or glass they produce very thin, intensive coloured and lustrous layers, which give them their metallic iridescent finish.

Lusters can contain up to 6% gold as well as silver, platinum and palladium. They are classified according to colour shade and precious metal content, as well as according to their special effects, as indicated by their classification as craquelling or marbling lusters, running lusters, and halo lusters.

The variety of application techniques as well as the number of different types of body to be decorated make it necessary to supply several different consistencies to obtain optimal processing and firing characteristics.
Craquelling   Solution Marbling  Solution  
Luster Preparations are generally supplied ready for use. If desired, suitable thinning oils can be added to adjust viscosity. Firing conditions depend on the type of body to be decorated. As the organic compounds in the preparation decompose during firing, good ventilation of the kiln (surplus of oxygen in the kiln atmosphere) must be assured during the entire firing process, or at least up to 500 °C.
  Halo Luster   Running   Luster   Firing ranges:     Earthenware     680-720 °C
                                   Bone China       700-740 °C
                                   Porcelain           740-800 °C
