A new generation of stable stains formed by encapsulating cadmium-based colors in a a zirconium silicate crystal, allowing brighter colors at higher temperatures.
Encapsulated Zr-Ca-Se stains for shades of red, orange, green and purple.
May be blended with most of our standard stains.
Suitable for experimentation at cone 9-10
Encapsulation is a special, patented, manufacturing process designed to incorporate certain metallic oxides into the crystals of zirconium oxide. They are also referred to as "inclusion" pigments. They are safe to use, and are now widely used in ceramic manufacture around the world.
As with all finely dispersed powders, care should be taken to keep operations as dust-free as possible.
