Silkscreen

Tecnoglass silk-screened and ceramic frit glasses offer building designers a variety of options for achieving beauty, originality and functionality in a high-performing safety package. Explore a variety of exciting ways to customize exterior and interior glass for a truly unique effect that meets both solar control and safety standards.

Our screen-printed and ceramic frit glass is fabricated using automated machinery with numeric controls, which results in an excellent homogenous paint finish.

Processing Technique

This technique consists of applying a coat of ceramic frit over the glass surface by means of a screen frame or rolls and then drying it with an infrared furnace before tempering. The silk-screened and spandrel glass is then tempered in the same way as glass without paint.

During the tempering process, glass sheets are heated up to approximately 700°C and then roughly cooled with an air stream at a room temperature with approximately 24°C. The result is a glass that supports higher mechanical stresses.
