Stain (pink/coral)

Coral/Pink Stains (ZrFe, ZrSiFe)

Color Range
Coral pink to pink shades.

Specific Gravity: 4.25-4.75

Stability/Kiln Atmosphere
Excellent in all types of glazes at temperatures up to over 1300C. The most stable of the known pink ceramic stains.

Suitable for blending with most other types of ceramic colors. Extensively used in blends with either zircon-vanadium blue, zircon-praseodymium yellow or tin-vanadium yellow to produce stable intermediate shades.


Note: This description is taken from information provided by Blythe Matthey and may or may not apply to stains of this family from other companies.

Suitable for all types of glazes. Best results are obtained with leadless or low-lead glazes having low alkali contents. Zircon opacifiers are preferred as they help prevent solution of the stain. This system is non-metameric and therefore minimizes the effects of different lighting conditions.
derglaze Color: Owing to great stability, may be used for all methods of underglaze decoration.
