ORMOSOL combines hard and transparent glass with easy application of organic paints. It forms a clear, hard and very thin coating of not more than 1 to 3 µm thickness. This creates the impression of coloured glass.
ORMOSOL was developed to coat glass. Ceramics and chinaware can also be durable coated with ORMOSOL.
The capability of outdoor use is limited. The stability which is usually required for outdoor use are not performed by all of the used colorants.
