Stain (yellow/orange)

Yellows/Oranges (CrSbTi)

Chrome-antimony-titanium oranges are based on mixtures of antimony oxide and titania in combination with small quantities of chrome oxide.

Color Range
Orange yellow to buff or fawn.

Produce ivory shades at reduced concentrations.

Specific Gravity: 4.0 approximately.

Stability/Kiln Atmosphere
Good in all types of bodies for firing at temperatures up to 1350C provided that the body is not over-vitrified; over-vitrification may cause the body to bloat. Should preferably be fired in an oxidising atmosphere.

Although there is some tendency for the chrome to flash, this has no serious effects since the chrome content of the colors is comparatively low.

Suitable for blending with chrome greens, manganese pinks and most other types of tin-free colours.

Relatively low.

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.

Engobe/Body Stain: Suitable for most types of bodies for firing in an oxidizing atmosphere at temperatures up to over 1250C.
Over-vitrification should be avoided since this may cause the body to bloat.
