The Diamond Line decorates glassware and ceramic using materials that comply
with current FDA guidelines. However, California has chosen to enforce its own
additional standards as defined in Proposition 65. Proposition 65 requires
warning notices on products that may contain any amount of any one of over 700
substances. This legislation does not ban any product, but requires either
COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAW or THE USE OF INDIVIDUAL WARNING LABELS.
COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAW (No labels required)
The Diamond Line has alternative ink processes that do NOT require
Proposition 65 warning labels.
We have Zinc based ceramic inks. These
can be used for direct screen printing or decal application. Please note that
Zinc based colors lack the gloss and durability of standard ink colors, and if
used in repeat orders the colors may not match exactly.
We have organic
based colors that are fired at a lower temperature. Items decorated with
organic inks are less resistant to scratches and are not as durable as
high fired ceramic inks. Organic inks can only be used in direct screen printing (Not in decal
Our NEW sublimation is a full color process but it does
have less durability and is more susceptible to scratches.
USE OF WARNING LABELS
The Diamond Line continues to offer low lead, high gloss ceramic enamels
for those who require them, which will require warning labels on all
products shipping into California. It is the distributor's responsibility to
notify The Diamond Line in advance of shipments to California or eventual indirect
shipments to California. If any distributor or end customer knowingly or
unknowingly sells product distributed in to the state of California and does
not notify The Diamond Line in advance, the distributor and/or the end
customer will hold The Diamond Line harmless for all liability for alleged
Proposition 65 violations, including any and all costs associated with
defending any legal claims due to Proposition 65 violations.
