PRODUCTS

Metco has focussed on the production of metal complexes called METCOLOUR for over 25 years. The range of products is divided into six large families. New products were introduced on the market for decorating unglazed ceramic materials and particularly porcelain stoneware at the beginning of the Nineties: "soluble salts". Created as an alternative to the traditional colouring with solid pigments, "soluble salts" are aqueous solutions of inorganic salts or organic complexes of chromophore metals. These chromophore solutions, applied using different techniques to the surfaces to be decorated, allow the surface of the ceramic material alone to be coloured; moreover, thanks to their properties of penetration and diffusion, they reach a depth of a few mm, making it possible to produce polished finished products, without affecting the decoration.

In liquid form are in turn divided into codes from A to P, each letter being then accompanied by a number which has now reached four figures, as a witness of the very large quantity of formulations made over the years. They are aqueous solutions containing one or more organic metal compounds capable of providing, if correctly applied, the required colour to the fired and polished tile.

METCOROLL

These are colours already available in paste and ready for use without any preparation necessary as they are prepared in Metco for machines with laser incision rollers. They can be used either for polished or unpolished materials, obviously it depends on the quantity discharged and then on the incision used.

Products

METOX

Divided into numerical codes, they are products to be added to the ceramic mixture before being put into the spray-drier to obtain particular colours like yellows and orangey-yellows

Products

METSCREEN

Divided into numerical codes, they come in the form of powders, they are thickening agents which permit application of the METCOLOUR with a serigraphic screen or a rubber roller.

Products

METASORB

Divided into numerical codes, they come in the form of powders, they are thickening agents which permit application of the METCOLOUR with a serigraphic screen or a rubber roller.

Products

METABASE

Divided into numerical codes, they come in liquid form and offer the possibility of obtaining depth effects similar to those present in natural stones.

Products

METOSAL

Divided into numerical codes in liquid form, they offer the possibility of bringing out the colour effect of some organo-metal complexes, or to obtain the "frame" effect to increase the depth of the image..

METOIL

Divided into numerical codes, in liquid or thickened form, they are used to obtain waterproofed areas and subsequently apply the colours by disking or spraying.

Products

METAFOAM

Divided into numerical codes, in liquid form, they reduce or eliminate the possible formations of foam during the thickening of the colour before use.

Products

METFLUID

Divided into alphabetical codes, in liquid form, they permit preparation of the thickening of the Metcolour dispersing Metscreen before their use.

METFLAG - TRACERS

Suspensions to add at 1% to the solution to be used or to the paste already formed to colour it thus making the print visible. They are particularly recommended for ensuring the success of the serigraphy or the print for applications with rolling machines or in any case for any application of small quantities of colour. Particularly useful if the solution used is transparent or colourless; they can only be seen on the surface. After firing they leave no trace.

The addition of promoters chromophores in the mixture of the customer makes to obtain substantial performance from the point of view of the development color, significantly expanding the colour Gamut. These additives can be added either in the liquid phase (slip) of the mixture, which in the initial charging of the mill.


As A result of this preparation will make it possible to have two types of applications:


The first (and most obvious liquid) application directly to the ceramic body through the use of supply chain pressure (application of at least 400-600 microns) while the second one (with different destination of use) once
spray the slip is then applied as a double layer all the dry double-loading.
You will always and surfaces “TECHNICAL” with a hardness similar to the Technical Porcelain pure, easy cleanability of the surface and a very high resistance to scratching due to the absence of fragile materials such as glass (typical instead of the glazed products made by other manufacturers of inks).
Subsequent finishes, Honed or Polished, thus giving it an added value that assimilates these artifacts to natural marble, both for aesthetics and for the variety of colours.


The typical configuration of the line, if you choose to apply the Slip modified with Metox directly by supply chain pressure (liquid), is the following:


-glazing line of at least 80-120 mt
-at the exit from the dryer after pressing it is necessary to cool the surface of the tile using a jet of water with an airless
- application of Slip changed with Metox through a chain of pressure (500-700 gr/sqm
the dry product divided into 2 applicators)
-a baby walker place between the sectors will rotate the tile by 90° (to avoid the effect of the vertical line)
-after the deposition of the layer you need to scrape the edges and proceed to dry the surface of the tile, which can be accomplished in these ways:
- bring the artifact in a kiln to more than plans for at least 3-5 minutes (drying or forced)
- leave to cross an empty space of the line (at least 80 metres)
- preventing the influence of water that the medium is absorbing.
