Utilisation of organic dyes for the control of quality prior to the tile vitrification in order to detect printing defects

Addition of organic dyes to Inkjet Inks in ceramic tile production is essential in the quality control of the process. Any 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.

Ferro has brought licenses rights for the use of organic colorants in its inks, and is researching their improvement, with the purpose of obtaining an intensity of point before the kiln, which makes it possible the identification, and analysis of problems of application in the Inkjet technology.
