Cevisama 2013 sees Alfa de Oro awards presented for process innovation
The 37th Alfa de Oro awards presented by the Spanish Ceramic and Glass Society (SECV) have once again gone to innovative technologies developed in the Castellón ceramic district. The prestigious awards were granted to Zschimmer&Schwarz, Vernís and Torrecid.
Zschimmer&Schwarz España received the honour for developing Eco2inkjet, new eco-friendly chemical additives for digital tile decoration that help to significantly reduce printing defects.
Vernis won the award for its product Oro Cerámico, capable of producing vivid gold surfaces in the single firing process without using metallic gold. This significantly reduces production costs while at the same time improving the aesthetic qualities of the finished product.
Last but not least, Torrecid won a new Alfa de Oro for adapting the digital decoration system to allow for the production of a wide range of entirely digitally glazed and decorated products.
