Processing techniques

A broad spectrum of techniques are available for processing the colours produced by Ceramic Colors Wolbring. Different techniques can be used depending on the application and the type of substrate. All the possible techniques are described in detail here. After this page, you can take a look at the different application possibilities and the appropriate processing technique in each case.

Roller coating

With the roller coating method, the processing colour is applied to the substrate using a roller. This method is used for unicoloured, large area projects, for example for cladding exterior facades with glass, but also in interior areas, such as for printing partitioning walls, etc.

Screen printing

With screen printing, the printing ink is pressed onto the printing material through a finely woven fabric using a rubber squeegee. In those areas of the fabric where no ink is to be printed analogue to the printed image, the mesh openings of the fabric are made impermeable to ink by means of a stencil.

It is possible to print many different forms using the screen printing method and special inks depending on the material. The print format ranges in size from a few centimetres through to several metres as required for the application.


When spraying ceramic colours, the processing colour is applied directly to the substrate surface using a spray nozzle. Here it is important that the colours to be sprayed have a suitable viscosity. Ceramic Colors Wolbring is one of the few suppliers in the market to have such colours in its assortment.

This processing technique is used in particular for smaller batches down to one-off jobs. It has the advantage that costs can be saved by eliminating the need to set up and commission large systems. In addition, the colours by produced by Ceramic Colors Wolbring do not require a dryer.
