Addition of organic dyes to suspensions in ceramic tile production to increase contrast

Addition of organic dyes to suspensions in ceramic tile production is essential in the quality control of the process. Any suspension or ink applied on a tile will obtain a higher contrast and combined with optical inspection this gives the possibility to control the results immediately after application instead of after the firing. This efficiently reduces the loss during production. The dyes do not harm the suspension properties and can be added without any changes in the existing production.
