Stain (orange)

Orange (ZrVIn, ZrVY)

Based on a calcined mixture of zirconia, vanadium pentoxide and indium oxide or yttrium oxide. Complete freedom from soluble salts is important to minimise the risks of producing dimples and other defects in the glazed surfaces of finished ware.

More orange than zircon-vanadium yellow.

Specific Gravity: 5.5 to 6.0

Stability/Kiln Atmosphere
Excellent in most types of glazes and bodies for firing at temperatures up to 1450C.

May be fired under reducing conditions with no risk of fading.

Suitable for blending with all other types of ceramic colours.

Relatively high.
