Binders for glazes

Products available both in solid and liquid form to improve the performance of glazes and slurries. Depending on the chemical nature or formulation, these products can act on different parameters such as cohesion, levelling power and drying times.


Applications:

  • Milling of glazes and engobes
  • Final protection

AMICER

Non-foaming and high-efficiency liquid binder designed for spray or disc applications.
It can be directly added to the glaze in the glazing line or as a fluidifying agent (or CMC alternative) for the grinding phase.

Non-foaming liquid binder that increases the glaze’s binding power, rendering the glaze itself more compact.  
It slows the glaze drying process and facilitates the application.

Non-foaming liquid binders that can be added directly to the glaze in the glazing line. 

LEGOCER

Noble binder resistant to micro-organisms.
It facilitates the glaze’s spray application and restores low-viscosity glazes for bell and waterfall systems.
It has been specially designed to improve surface uniformity of wet grit applications with either a spray or disc system.
The product can be added directly in the glazing line.

CMC-based and easily dispersible binder with medium viscosity suitable for grinding process that can be added directly in the glazing line.
It makes the glaze more mechanically resistant and it facilitates different kinds of application:
waterfall and bell systems, airless and double disc.
It can also be used as a temporary binder for powders and granules thanks to its easy removal during the firing process.

Noble binder resistant to micro-organisms.
It facilitates the glaze’s spray application and restores low-viscosity glazes for bell and waterfall systems.
The resins contained into the binder, thanks to their low molecular weight, create a superficial reticular matter that does not compromise the absorption.

A concentrated and easily dispersible binder, suitable for grinding or for additivation during the glazing process.
It makes the glaze more mechanically resistant and it facilitates different kinds of application:
waterfall and bell systems, airless and double disc.

POLYCOL

A purified CMC of medium viscosity suitable for all uses. It is recommended for engobes and glazes for either spray, bell or waterfall systems.
It provides for a better viscosifying and binding power and, at the same time, it slows the drying time, improving the glaze application.

A binder for glazes and engobes which provides for a binding power. It slows the drying time, improving the glaze application and reduces the dustiness of the applied glaze. 
It shows a slight viscous and suspensory effect in the glaze’s suspensions.

A low viscosity purified CMC suitable for all uses.
It is recommended for either spray, bell and waterfall systems.

A medium viscosity purified CMC suitable for all uses.
It confers viscosity to the glaze and it is recommended for either spray, bell and waterfall systems.
 

A technical grade CMC with medium viscosity, especially suitable for glazes used in porcelain stoneware productions.

OPTAPIX

A high viscosity purified CMC.
It primarily confers viscosity power to the glaze and it is particularly suitable for bell and waterfall technologies.
