UV Printed Glass

UV printing uses ultraviolet light to cure inks directly onto the glass surface. This method is known for its precision and ability to produce detailed, high-resolution images. UV printing is ideal for intricate designs and can accommodate a wider range of colours and effects, including gradients and photographic images.

How is UV Printed Glass made?

The process of printing on glass begins with high-quality clear or low-iron glass, which serves as the canvas for the desired design. Using state-of-the-art digital printing technology, intricate patterns, vibrant colours, and intricate details can be reproduced with remarkable precision and clarity.

One of the key advantages of printed glass is its ability to transform ordinary surfaces into works of art. Whether it's a bold geometric pattern, a serene landscape, or a corporate logo, printed glass allows for endless creative possibilities, making it ideal for architectural features, interior partitions, signage, and decorative elements.

Moreover, printed glass offers practical benefits beyond its aesthetic appeal. The printed design is protected by a durable layer of ink or ceramic frit, ensuring long-lasting durability and resistance to scratches, fading, and moisture. Additionally, the smooth surface of the glass is easy to clean, making maintenance super easy.

In summary, printed glass combines artistic expression with functional utility, offering a versatile and visually captivating solution for enhancing interior spaces. Whether used in residential, commercial, or institutional settings, printed glass adds a touch of sophistication and style, turning ordinary surfaces into extraordinary works of art.

UV vs Ceramic Printed Glass

When it comes to printing on glass, two popular techniques are ceramic printing and UV printing, each offering distinct advantages. Ceramic printing involves fusing ceramic inks into the glass surface through high-temperature firing, resulting in a highly durable and scratch-resistant finish that is perfect for both interior and exterior applications. The colours in ceramic printing are vivid and long-lasting, withstanding harsh environmental conditions without fading. On the other hand, UV printing uses ultraviolet light to cure inks directly onto the glass surface. This method is known for its precision and ability to produce detailed, high-resolution images. UV printing is ideal for intricate designs and can accommodate a wider range of colours and effects, including gradients and photographic images. We mainly use ceramic printing for larger projects.
