Ceramic Pigments And Architectural Ceramic Decoration

Summary

Developments in architectural ceramic decoration technology, and some of the problems to be solved, are described.  Progress in research into pigments and coloured glazes is first examined, looking at inclusion pigments produced by the hydrothermal route, long-afterglow photo-luminescent pigments, simulated gold pigments, and pigments prepared by mineral or industrial slag.  Decoration  techniques which are currently popular in architectural ceramics (body colouring; coloured glass decoration; colourant decoration; liquid pigment decoration; functional glaze decoration; and computer-controlled non-contact decoration process) are then considered.  It is concluded that improvements in comprehensive decoration technology provide endless possibilities for the development of architectural ceramics. 17 refs.
