Digital In-Glass Printing

Prel-Design

  • Printing any type of image or photo, opaque or translucent patterns.
  • The same image can be repeated on several glass panels or enlarged and split between a number of panels, all in high definition, up to 720 dpi.
  • The image is reproduced using a digital printer which applies one or more layers of liquid ceramic on the surface of the glass.
  • Once the application is completed, the glass is tempered or heat strengthened, in order to fire-fuse the ceramic to the glass.

 

Prel-Design Digital Printing is permanent and is exceptionally resistant to:

  • Scratching
  • Cracking
  • Fading
  • Chemical attacks

Glass makeup

Monolithic glass

The ceramic coating is applied on face #2 on the supporting lite of glass*. The glass should be heat strengthened or fully 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 applications all the glass plies that make up the laminated glazing should be heat strengthened or fully tempered.

Insulating Glass

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