Using Glassprimer™ glass paint with architectural glass
The use of architectural glass in buildings poses a challenge. By itself, glass isn’t energy-efficient. In the summer, glass tends to trap heat in buildings. That requires significant amounts of energy to make the building comfortable. In the winter, heat readily escapes. Just as in the summer, the low insulating ability of glass means increased energy use to make the building comfortable.
Nonetheless, glass has made a comeback in interior design, and in a variety of ways. Glass is an extremely versatile material, and can be shaped in a variety of ways, and incorporate a limitless number of textures. Using shapes and textures, glass makes an ideal material for doors, walls, partitions, furniture and countertops.
In some cases, it may be desirable to treat the glass to improve its performance, create additional privacy or even improve the energy efficiency of a space. Because of its nature, glass doesn’t typically take paint or other coatings very well. This limits your ability to modify the glass.
Enter Glassprimer™ glass paint. Glassprimer™ glass paint is specially formulated to bond to the surface of glass. This makes Glassprimer™ glass paint an ideal coating for surfaces like textured glass, which won’t retain applied films. With Glassprimer™ glass paint, you can apply a permanent surface coating to the glass that will remain beautiful for years.
Glassprimer™ glass paint reflects UV light, which reduces the amount of trapped heat in buildings in the summer, and allows the glass to better reduce heat losses in the winter. Glassprimer™ can help improve the overall energy efficiency of building windows. It also offers an option for decorating or improving architectural glass used in building interiors.
Glassprimer™ glass paint comes in virtually any color and can be tinted to match the color palette of any major paint manufacturer. It is also more cost-effective than acid-etched glass.
