Inclusion pigments represent a new generation of inorganic, high-temperature-stable pigments for ceramic applications. By including colored, inorganic compounds in a zirconium silicate crystal, the coloring characteristics of these compounds are combined with the stability characteristics of the zirconium silicate. Great technical importance has already been attained today by CdS/CdSe inclusion pigments for the color range of red-orange-yellow. They are synthesized through the inclusion of CdS-CdSe mixed crystals during the reaction of ZrO2 with SiO2. These stains are thermally stable up to about 1400oC and are used primarily for the coloring of vitreous coatings.
