i-Glass®

i-Glass® is manufactured using a digital printing process in which ceramic inks are applied directly to the surface of glass. Unlike traditional silk-screened glass technology, i-Glass® printing allows multiple colors to be applied simultaneously in a single printing session to create a broad range of design possibilities.

i-Glass® Applications

i-Glass® can be used as a single lite, as part of a laminated product, or as part of an insulating glass unit, creating a wide range of interior and exterior applications.

i-Glass® Capabilities

Image resolution up to 360 dpi, dependent upon the electronic file provided, the application and the final size of the printed image.

The glass substrate must be heat-treated; therefore, a printed image can only be applied to one surface of the glass. If more than one printed surface is needed for the design, laminating or insulating multiple lites of printed i-Glass® is required.

Thickness: The thickness range for monolithic glass is 1/8" to 1/2". Typically, laminated glass may range from 5/16" to 1" in thickness and insulating glass units may range from 5/8" to 2" in thickness.

Size: The size of the printed glass can range from a minimum of 12"x12" up to a maximum of 96"x144".

Contact your sales representative for specific details regarding capabilities for your project.
