Design glass

In addition to enameling, other processes are currently available for the production of design glasses.

Transfer colour print on glass

The  transfer  print  offers  an  alternative to achieve a multi-coloured print rather than single colour screen printing. In addition, enamel and ceramic colours can also be transferred through digital printing onto transfer films, thus reproducing multi-coloured motifs. These printed films are then fixed on glasses to be tempered. During the tempering process, these transfer films burn residue-free and the painted colours bond as previously described. Besides all kinds of ornaments, this method can also generate illustrations which similar quality to coloured photos.

Design laminated safety glass

Large sized illustrations such as photographic slides technology of the past, are produced using the same digital print method but with other paint components and films. The illustrations are inserted between the PVB films of the laminated safety glass and then compressed. Colours and films are lightfast and UV- resistant and create a decorative pane that retains its individuality. Despite this additional laminate, the laminated glass retains its outstanding characteristics, supplemented by the individual design component.

Coloured films in laminated glass

The same lamination process can today offer of a large range of different colour films, which can be combined to achieve every conceivable colour in laminated glass. This method enables the creation of completely transparent coloured glass. In addition, with   supplementary dispersion films to further define translucency, products such as colourful blinds can be produced. These films are also UV-resistant for outdoor use, thus preserving their radiant colour effect without affecting the characteristics of the laminated glass.

Decorative laminated glass

An alternative to these safety glasses are laminated glasses, which are produced by filling the interface of two panes with resin or using EVA interlayers. Decorative elements (e. g. mesh wire or other plain accessories) can be integrated into the resin and give the resulting glass sandwich a unique decorative configuration. These laminated glasses are typically not safety glasses (as defined in applicable laws relating to safety glass) and may be installed as such only when they are legally approved for construction.
