ABSTRACT La industria de decoración cerámica usa pigmentos cerámicos, mezcla de óxidos, y de esmaltes quienes soportan en matriz vítrea al pigmento para dar la coloración y constancia tonal que incide en la aceptación de la pieza cerámica por parte del consumidor. Este trabajo estudia el efecto de la temperatura de cocción de los esmaltes cerámicos sobre el tono de las piezas cerámicas. Se preparó y aplicó un esmalte cerámico sobre un soporte de gres por el método de serigrafía-pincel a distintas temperaturas. Los resultados determinan la variación tonal de las muestras, aplicando una técnica espectrofotocolorimétrica para determinar los parámetros CIE L*a*b* y espectros de reflectancia.

    ABSTRACT: A green pigment was synthesised based on a Cr2−xAlxO3 solid solution, using a standard ceramic industry composition with and without different mineralisers and using raw materials industrial grade reagents. The resulting products were compared with a pigment made using chemically pure (CP grade) to establish the most appropriate reagents for achieving minimum Cr(VI) segregation during the pigment washing stage, and comparable chromatic qualities to those of a standard industrial pigment. Chromium sesquioxide was used as Cr(III) precursor instead of a Cr(VI) compound, and the chromium content was also optimised. The X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) results indicated that a solid solution only forms when CP grade reagents are used. This is consistent with the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) data obtained in the study. Smaller Cr(VI) and B contents were found in the washing liquids when CP grade reagents were used, but the resulting chromatic quality was slightly lower than that of a standard pigment made and used in the ceramic industry.

    ABSTRACT: Smeared cheeses like Epoisses, Munster, Maroilles, Livarot, Limburger or Tilsit are characterized by the occurrence of red to orange-brown surfaces. The rind’s color of these cheeses originates in the synthesis of carotenoids and other pigments by bacteria such as Brevibacterium linens group and coryneform bacteria, in interaction with deacidifying yeasts and cheese technology. Objective measurement of the smear color can be provided using a spectrocolorimeter (L*a*b* colorimetric system). As a means to bring information to cheese manufacturers making so-called red-smear soft cheeses, the use of spectrocolorimetry was investigated for the description of: (i) the rind’s color among various PDO cheeses, (ii) the relative heterogeneity observed for “on shelf cheeses” color in a specific PDO area (example taken from Munster produced in France), (iii) the assessment of color development at the surface of cheese versus time (quality control), (iv) a screening technique for pigmented strains isolated from red-smear cheese rinds (biodiversity criteria). Spectrocolorimetry in the CIE L*a*b* color space as useful tool for monitoring the ripening process and the quality of PDO red-smear soft cheeses.

    ABSTRACT: The coloring efficiency in different ceramic glazes of the classical Co olivine blue pigment (Co2SiO4) was compared with those obtained with a Co-doped willemite (Co0.05Zn1.95SiO4), and with a magnesium-doped Co-Al spinel (Mg0.2Co0.8Al2O4). The fired pigments and enameled samples were characterized by XRD, UV-VIS-NIR spectroscopy, CIE-L*a*b* color-measurements, and by SEM/EDX. The Co-olivine and Co-willemite pigments dissolved to a higher extent in the molten glazes than the Co–Al spinel. The darker blue color of the Co-olivine probed to be mostly due to Co2+ ions incorporated in the glassy matrix. The Co-willemite composition (which only contained a 1.3 Co wt.%) developed the bluest color hue of all pigments in both double and single firing glazes, while the magnesium-doped Co–Al spinel was found the most appropriate blue pigment in the bulk coloration of fast-fired porcelainized stoneware.
