Printing on glass
The breakthrough glass printing technology provided by Frajt replaces the existing screen printing methods employed in the industry so far. The new digital printing machine ensures unbelievable application of inorganic ceramic inks to mate with the glass surface after hardening at temperatures up to 700 °C. The maximum printing resolution is 800 DPI with adjustable printing drop size.
The resulting product is a high performance, UV-resistant, scratch-resistant and weather-resistant glass plate.
Ceramic inks are always applied to one (air) side of the glass plate. The second (tin) side of the glass is always visible with a glossy effect.
Double vision effect
It is a very attractive glass print, the area contains several layers with transparent perforation, resulting visual effect are different motifs with transparent patterns on each side of the glass.
This type of glass printing is very popular, e.g., for doors or partition walls, the surface contains several layers, the resulting visual effect being different motifs on each side of the glass.
The print area contains 2 layers, 1. Motif, and 2. white layer that serves to cover, the adhesive. Standard for saunas, kitchens and wall banners.
This is a standard print design, the glass surface contains 1 layer with a motif. The motif may also be semi-transparent. Appropriate application for interior doors, shower enclosures and partition walls.
The glass area contains only a partial print coverage to 15%, 85% of the glass remains transparent. This method is used in applications partly transparent or opaque appearance.
