Painting

Glass Painting

Painted glass receives more intensified interest as a decorative element in contemporary architecture and replaces such techniques of graphics placing on glass as: taping with foil or laminating.  An ability to use the technique to place any pattern in any colouring leaves a lot of freedom to the architects and designers – painted  and printed glass has a wide range of applications, starting from small decorative elements and furniture components, through internal décor elements, partition walls and wall covering,  to heavy safe glass like balustrades, railings, windowpanes, lift walls, glass stairs, floors and platforms.  Using painted glass as the building  frontages remains a very common application nowadays, which protects the buildings against impact from sun beams.

 

Painting glass along the entire surface with rolls

The asset of this method is achieving the high quality  painted surface, it is painted with paint coating having equal thickness. The technique has got one limitation only as the entire glass pane can be coated . A purpose-designed device ( the so called roller coater) is used for coating along the entire surface. The glass pane is placed horizontally between its rollers. Glass moves along on the belt, the paint is applied from the upper side by means of a roller. A precisely measured paint dose is supplied to the upper roller which is transferred to glass by precisely set down thrust.

Screen-printing

Screen-printing is one of the most popular and the oldest methods of machine printing, is includes application of paint on various types of surfaces by means of screens on which a printed image is mapped through light-sensitive film. The matrix is prepared depending on the size, shape and pattern. The technique allows to execute any patterns on glass, within a selected area or along the entire surface of the glass pane. The durability of the print is secured by subsequent tampering, which causes the paint to melt into the glass, or hardening by means of UV radiation.

Minimum print size: 100 x 250 mm
Maximum print size: 1300 x 2500 mm
Printed glass thickness range: 3-19 mm

Spray painting

Spraying method allows to execute small, mostly unitary, orders, which are impossible to be carried out through screen-printing or roller painting. It is based on the application of paint by means of a sprayer , also referred to as an airbrush.  A coloured coating achieved  covers the entire glass  surface, or its part,  evenly ; it is possible to achieve simple geometrical patterns.

Minimum print size: 50 x 50 mm
Maximum print size: 2000 x 1000 mm
Printed glass thickness range: 3-19 mm
