Fusion Glass : Digital Print Laminate

FUSION GLASS : DIGITAL PRINT LAMINATE

Digital print laminates allow for virtually any digital image whether pattern, photographic, solid colour, continuous tone or fade, to be accurately reproduced and then encapsulated within protective glass layers.

An ideal product for use in structural and decorative applications as the process allows for a wealth of possibilities for a wide range of applications including screens, partitions, cladding and features.

Laminated glass comprises of two or more layers of glass which are bonded together with an interlayer using heat and pressure. As well as this PVB (polyvinyl butyl) or EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) interlayer, other materials such as coloured interlayers, fabrics, metal meshes and digital prints can be included for a myriad of possibilities.

Laminating can also be combined with other decorative glass products and finishes such as kiln forming, sandblasting and colour coating to further enhance the design.

We advise that particular care must be taken to protect the edges of laminated panels against water ingress. Prolonged contact with water can cause the interlayers used in laminating to deteriorate, both in appearance and adhesion. Edges should also be protected from contact with compounds and products containing mineral or vegetable oils and unsuitable glazing compounds such as acid curing silicones.
