Precious metal preparations together with underlays, reliefs and fluxes create decoration effects for magical designs. These are the systems we have on offer:

Heraeus Decoration Systems

Heraeus Matt Gold System for porcelain

The Heraeus Matt Gold System is a decoration system for decal production. Certain bright precious metal decal pastes are partly printed on top of a special white underlay. After firing the decal, the bright precious metal layer on top of the underlay has a silk matt golden/platinum appearance, and on top of the substrate glaze a bright appearance.

Heraeus Gold under Flux System for porcelain

The Heraeus Gold under Flux System contains special bright precious metal pastes that can be overprinted with a lead-free glass flux. Typically, the system is used in a decal process. After firing, the resulting glaze-protected precious metal decoration distinguishes itself by an extremely high scratch resistance. The valuable precious metal layer is nicely protected under a thin layer of flux.
