Screen printing involves the printing of coloured frits/enamels or metallic oxides onto the glass using a silk screen stencil. Once these have been applied, they are fired and fused to the glass surface during the toughening/tempering process. Screen printing offers designers, architects and specifiers a wealth of creative possibilities when designing for internal or external decorative architectural glass, ranging from single commissioned pieces to complete glass façades.
The printing of any pattern or graphic for either a single panel or volume production run can be easily achieved with access to an unlimited palette of vibrant transparent, translucent or opaque colours. These can be printed singularly or overlaid. Due to the nature of the manufacturing process, the frits/enamels are very hardwearing and UV resistant.
A wide range of surface finishes including sandblasting, etching, applied transparent and opaque colours and mirroring can also be applied to further enhance this process.
Toughened (tempered) glass, laminated to BS EN 12600, BS 6206 Class A or required national safety standard.
