Chrome-antimony-titanium oranges are based on mixtures of antimony oxide and titania in combination with small quantities of chrome oxide.
Orange yellow to buff or fawn.
Produce ivory shades at reduced concentrations.
Specific Gravity: 4.0 approximately.
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.

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.
Glaze Color - Yellow/Orange
Although the colours are primarily intended for use as body stains, their low cost compared with that of other types of orange stain favours their use as glaze stains for firing at temperatures below 1100C.
A fairly stiff leadless glaze mixture should be used, and the addition of stain should not exceed 5%.
Underglaze Color: Suitable for use under most types of glazes.
