Ceramic Printing Technology
Advances in ceramic tile printing have nearly closed the gap on ‘making all things possible’ for custom tile decoration.
CMYK dry pigment printing is still the benchmark for color strength, saturation, and substrate hiding-power. The gamut of inorganic pigments which have been incorporated in this approach has increased. For example, the magenta ‘slot’ can be filled with red-magenta or red in the printer reservoir. The ideal four color selection (CMYK, CR-MYK or CRYK) will be determined by the artwork. There are also newly minted white, blue, and orange pigments run as single color options.
Four colors were the limit as well for inkjet printers. Modern configurations feature as many as ten color banks. This allows a much wider color gamut. Mechanical improvements include ink recirculation and automatic head cleaning to avoid pigment settling and head clogging. The higher equipment cost is offset by lower maintenance costs and increased production. Multi-head printers can apply clear coats for gloss control and anti-slip properties.
Tile Cost & Project Requirements
Due to the level of technology involved, clients are often reliant on the supplier to fully understand the requirements of the project. It may not be obvious to the client what kind of trade-offs are involved by the various options. Color matching, color strength, resulting sheen, durability, weather/moisture exposure, production scheduling, and costs all factor into the decision for the appropriate method and substrate to be used. For example, to simply say “ceramic” does not express the specific properties of the tile Group (I, II, or III) or moisture absorption (E value), or shaping (pressed, extruded, or ‘other’).
Likewise, without a range of resources, the tile provider may not be able to offer the best match for the project requirements. This may be resolved by submitting samples from the best two possible choices. Although advances have nearly closed the gap on ‘making all things possible,’ we emphasize ‘nearly.’
