Ferro at glasstec 2016 in Düsseldorf

You are welcome to come by the stand hall11 booth D60 and meet our Ferro team on September 20 -23, 2016.
We’ll be demonstrating a bunch of interesting innovations:

- Laser Transfer Printing
- New, high resistent glass colors for Automotive
- Special colors for stripping of sputter coatings
- New forehearth colors with fluoreszenz effect
- Improved organic, thermoplastic colors (incl. neon and metallic effect)

A new Digital Printing Process gains Acceptance
Superfine ground glass powders with a max particle size < 1 µm are necessary for conventional inkjet printing. Because of this superfine grinding those color powders loose opacity and intensity. In opposite to this process the Laser Transfer Printing technology (LTP) runs with special inks, which are based on color powders with a standard fineness. Ferro informs about the status of the market launch. Ferro as producer of the inks cooperates closely with LPKF the producer of the printing machine to establish this great technology in the glass market.

A new generation of Automotive Glass colors
The demands of the automotive industry are constantly growing especially regarding the aesthetic appearance and the chemical resistance of the ceramic printing. Ferro has developed new colors for automotive, which allow fast firing cycles in the so-called press bending process and furthermore show a very high chemical resistance. Herewith complex curved front windows and back lights can be produced fulfilling the highest demands of the automotive producers.

Cost saving for the Processing of Sputtered Glass
If you want to glue glass you have to print a color between the glass and the glue to protect the glue from UV light and to hide the adhesive area. In case of sputtered glass it is not approved to have this adhesive area on top of the sputtered coating. The coating needs to be removed. Usually this is done by laser or in a mechanical way. This production step is not necessary in case of Ferro´s recently developed colors. The new colors solve the sputtered layer and provide a perfect underground for the adhesion of the glass.

Forehearth Color Pearls, Concentrate und Forehearth Frits, Novelties
The current generation of dust-free forehearth pearls as well as our forehearth frits were developed further. We will present a selection of the newest effects including fluorescent glass.

Improved organic Printing Colors for Container Glass
Our very successful organic colors of the HTP range are produced in Frankfurt now. The gloss of this series could be improved significantly.
Furthermore we developed interesting new colors with special effects like neon or metallic effects. This will open up new design opportunities to our customers.

Organic Coatings for Container Glass
Since June 2016 Pinturas Benicarlo a producer of organic coatings for flacons, bottles and drinking glasses is part of Ferro. This enables us to offer in the area of waterborne spray coatings a versatile product range.
