This invention relates to lead free and cadmium free copper-containing glass frits that can be used as pigments to color other glass frits or to impart color to solid substrates such as glass, ceramic or metals, or to impart color to a thermoplastic mass. The compositions comprise silica, alkali metal oxides, alkaline earth metal oxides, tin oxide and copper oxide. The resulting compositions can be used to decorate and protect automotive, beverage, architectural, pharmaceutical and other glass substrates, generally imparting a red color.

Various laser marking compositions and related methods are described. The laser marking compositions utilize one or more populations of particles having certain average particle sizes or a range of sizes. Marks or other indicia formed using the compositions and methods exhibit increased contrast, improved substrates bonding, and greater dispersability.

Inkjet compositions that can be applied to glass and/or ceramic substrates to impart various effect to the substrate after firing, including: gloss, matt, contrast gloss (luster), specular reflection (metallic appearance), relief and slipperiness. The inkjet compositions include solvents, additives for dispersion, and inorganic substances, but preferably do not include any color-producing ceramic pigments. The inorganic substances contained in the inkjet compositions are the responsible for the above mentioned effects on the surface of the ceramic article. Depending on the type of effect desired, the inorganic substance may be a specific frit, a crystalline oxide, or a combination of frits and crystalline oxides.
