Silkscreened Glass

Silk Screen Glass

 

  • Glass on which is applied, using a silkscreen, a ceramic frit coating to reproduce the pattern of your choice.
  • When printing, the ceramic crosses only the open mesh of the screen which, as a stencil, reproduces the printed pattern.
  • The ceramic is then fire-fused to the glass surface by heat treatment.

 

The multiple possibilities of colors and patterns allow to print:

  • Geometric patterns
  • Lettering
  • Logos
  • Etc…
Verre sérigraphié

Glass makeup

Monolithic Glass

The ceramic coating is applied on face #2 on the glass*. The glass must be heat strengthened or tempered.  It is not recommended to expose the ceramic coating to the elements. Use on face #1 should be avoided.

Laminated Glass

The ceramic coating can be applied on face # 2, # 3 or # 4, of laminated glass*.  For exterior use, all the glass plies should be heat strengthened or fully tempered.

Insulating Glass

The ceramic coating is applied on face #2 or #3 of insulated glass units.* The two lites that make up the unit should be heat strengthened or fully tempered.

*Certain conditions apply. Contact us for additional details.

*Although all measurements are taken to minimize the appearance of a seam, it is sometimes noticeable once the glass has been screen-printed. The appearance of a seam depends on the complexity and density of the pattern. In some cases it may be preferable to reduce the size of the glass lites.  Contact us for additional information.
