Tecnoglass silk-screened and ceramic frit glasses offer architects 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 are fabricated using automated machinery with numeric controls, which results in an excellent homogenous paint finish.
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 are 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.
Tecnoglass silk-screened glass is used both in exteriors and interiors, most commonly as decorative material.
Common applications include:
- Interior partitions
- Exterior window walls
