Department of Inorganic Pigments and Glaze
Inorganic pigments and coatings are important due to their ability to resistance at high temperatures and corrosive chemical environments and color stability in tile and whiteware industries.
The main research activities of the department are in the fields of high temperature coatings, glaze of ceramics or metals (enamels), chemical resistant coatings, smart coatings and so on. Synthesis of inorganic pigments, special, multifunctional and traditional, producing of different inorganic coatings, designing of new glaze formulations and their preparation and processing are the research topics of our department.
