APPLICATIONS AND MARKETS
Glass and Ceramics
Shepherd Color’s inorganic pigments can be found in glass enamels and ceramics due to their high temperature and thermal cycle stability, resulting in color durability and controlled thermal expansion. Major applications include automotive windshields and architectural glass where opacity and thermal stability are key elements to a performing product.
The pigments opacity and heat stability make them ideal for complex glass processing and applications.

Our pigments can be found in glass enamels for architectural glass, bottles, and many appliances.
The glass enamel, which is a paint or ink, is applied to glass substrates, providing an inseparable bond between the color and glass. This technology provides the greatest overall toughness, which will not scratch, peel, or fade, providing long lasting beauty to buildings.
This technology also improves sustainability by allowing reuse of drink containers. The next time you flip open a cold beverage, look at the printing on the glass bottle, that could be our pigment you see.
