One of the newest decorating trends is the use of printed glass tiles and shower doors. Printing on glass allows photorealistic images to be deposited on glass surfaces. Unlike backpainted glass, where color or images are applied to the back side of transparent glass, glass printing takes place on the surface of the glass.
Printed glass offers residential, commercial options
UV inkjet printing offers some exciting options, not just for decorating but also for commercial applications. One of the challenges of printing on glass is that printed inks are typically not UV-resistant. When exposed to direct sunlight, the inks will fade. This makes using printed glass a challenge in both commercial and residential settings because it affects the longevity of the printed glass.
Glassprimer™ makes a specialty primer for UV-inkjet printing that extends to UV-inkjet printing the permanent bond that Glassprimer™ glass paint is famous for. With the Glassprimer™ glass surface molecular activator, inks can permanently bond to the glass surface, improving the longevity, durability and vibrancy of the finished product.
Image stability and durability means that you can decorate surfaces in your home or interior commercial space with printed glass. Printed glass tiles, shower doors and backsplashes will create an innovative and completely customized appearance, whether in the residential or commercial setting.
Printed glass in the commercial setting offers new opportunities to make branding impressions. Commercially, printed glass would work well in fitness facilities, restaurants, event venues and retail spaces. In addition to being eye-catching, printed glass is less expensive than other durable architectural materials and can be cleaned and sanitized easily. Glassprimer™ glass surface molecular activator works on any type of glass, so it could be used on ordinary plate glass, float glass or even rolled glass.
In a residential setting, printed glass opens new decorating possibilities by allowing the homeowner to incorporate photorealistic art and design in any space in the home.
