The invention relates to the field of forehearth frits, pearls, and/or concentrates for use in glass compositions. In particular, the present invention provides a system of forehearth frits, pearls, and/or concentrates that is capable of imparting a brown color to a glass composition for forming colored glass in the forehearth of a glass furnace, and a method of using the colored system of forehearth frits, pearls, and/or concentrates. The invention further provides a glass composition for use in forming the color system or for use directly in a forehearth.

LTCC devices are produced from dielectric compositions comprising a mixture of precursor materials that, upon firing, forms a dielectric material comprising a matrix of titanates of alkaline earth metals, the matrix doped with at least one selected from rare- earth element, aluminum oxide, silicon oxide and bismuth oxide.


The glass composites include glass frit, that when sintered produce a phosphor-containing layer, suitable for use in optical applications. The glass composites can include a crystallizing glass frit, such that phosphor crystals precipitate from the frit composite during sintering, or can include a non-crystallizing glass composition, such that phosphor is added to the frit composite before sintering. The sintering temperatures of the glass are relatively low so that fluorescence of the phosphors will not substantially degrade during sintering. The resulting phosphor-containing layer can be used in various optical applications including those for converting blue light into various color temperatures of white light.

Inkjet compositions that can be applied to glass and/or ceramic substrates to impart contrast gloss (luster). 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 responsible for the effects on the surface of the substrate.

Various laser marking compositions and related methods are described. The laser marking compositions include a molybdenum metal complex, a tungsten metal complex, or combinations thereof. Marks or other indicia formed on a substrate using the compositions and methods exhibit increased contrast and improved substrate bonding.
