Development of New Ceramic Dyes


Article Preview

Research on new ceramic dyes is addressed to obtain best pigmenting materials in order to reach higher thermal stability (e.g. for porcelainised stoneware) than classical pigments, higher chemical stability towards the coloured matrix or low toxicity in order to satisfy health and environmental requirements. The earlier developments on the research in new ceramic pigments based on new crystal structures (e.g. perovskite, hexaaluminates, fergusonite, pseudobrookite …), new chromophores (e.g. ruthenium, bismuth and rare earth ions), or new methods of preparation are discussed in this communication.
