Special functionality inks for digital printing on architectural glass
Our offering of special functionality inks for digital printing on architectural glass include extra durable S1 series inks, slip-resistant inks and anti-stick inks. These inks enable flexibility in the production of glass printed with designs that meet both aesthetic goals and functional performance requirements.
Extra durable S1 series inks for digital printing on architectural glass
Our Extra Durable S1 Series of ceramic inks are lead-free and cadmium-free. They are specifically formulated to comply with architecture industry standards and requirements for a wide range of glass digital printing applications. They can be processed using the same standard firing and tempering procedures commonly used across the glass industry. The S1 Series provides different levels of opacity for glass used in both interior design and building construction purposes, making them a top choice of leading architects. Offering high chemical, scratch, and environmental resistance, these inks reduce glare and reflection. The colors available are black and white ink, with the option of mixing to achieve shades of gray.
Slip-resistant ceramic inks for digital printing on architectural glass
Our Slip-Resistant inks create a non-abrasive smooth surface on glass that is anti-slip when wet or dry, ensuring safety and comfort when walking barefoot. The chemical resistance of these inks protect glass from being corroded by pool chemicals or seawater, making it ideal for a wide range of interior and exterior flooring applications. Vibrantz's Slip-Resistant inks for digital printing on architectural glass comply with industry standards for anti-slip glass coatings and offer excellent mechanical, environmental, UV and chemical stability performance. These properties make them ideal for other applications such as glass roofs, ceilings and ducts, which are not classified as floors but are accessed for maintenance.
Anti-Stick inks for digital printing on architectural glass
Anti-Stick Inks allow digitally printed glass for architectural applications to be bent during the thermal process (firing and/or tempering). This enables full-color digital printing on large glass panels, glass with sharp angles and glass that will be fired or tempered in furnaces that use molding. The Anti-Stick inks are available in seven colors: blue, green, white, orange, red, black and yellow which are suitable for both side 1 (S1) and side 2 printing.
Special effect inks for digital printing on architectural glass
Our special effect inks enable frosted, etched, sandblasted and other effects on glass without masking. Our light diffusion series of special effect inks for digital printing on architectural glass are an efficient, lead-free and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional glass etch processes. These inks provide detailed and versatile etch effects on glass using digital printing, for varied functional requirements, including privacy and light control.
For an extra shine with perfect metallic effects, Vibrantz’s precious metallic inks series of ceramic inks for digital printing are available in gold and platinum versions. They are ideal for use in prestigious glass projects and reflective applications. Vibrantz’s light diffusion ceramic inks for digital printing on glass are compliant with industry standards and with widely available industrial products.
All our digital inks were successfully tested in accordance with many worldwide industry standards based on the relevancy of the ink to the specific application.
Spectrum R digital inks
Spectrum R high performance digital printing inks are Vibrantz’s next-generation ceramic inks formulated to meet and exceed the evolving industry safety and environmental standards. The Spectrum R series is compliant with European Union Regulation 1907/200 governing the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH); and does not contain Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) listed in Annex XIV. It is available in black, white, blue, green, red and orange and provides improved chemical and scratch resistance; larger color matching; and exceptionally vibrant colors.
Inks for digital printing on automotive glass
Our ceramic inks for digital printing on automotive glass have proven durable in varied automotive and transportation applications worldwide. These ceramic inks are comprised of ceramic frits and inorganic pigments produced under a highly controlled production process designed to deliver high consistency in replication.
Automotive black inks for digital printing on automotive glass
Our automotive black inks provide long-lasting UV resistance, making them ideal for all types of automotive glass, marine glass, aerospace glass and other types of transportation glass that is exposed to the elements.
Anti-stick inks for digital printing on automotive glass
Anti-Stick Inks for digital printing on automotive glass are designed to be applied in a way that allows glass to be bent during the thermal process (firing and/or tempering) for bending. These inks are ideal for use with gravity bending, press bending and press-assisted bending processes used in windshields and other curved automotive and transportation glass surfaces.
Inks for digital printing on unfired glaze
Vibrantz’s inks for digital dinnerware printing offer optimal solutions for all modern inkjet technologies used in ceramic dinnerware production. This family of colored inks displays a very broad chromatic range, suited for high-definition (400 DPI) and high-resolution print heads (GS). These inks are developed for application on unfired glaze of various ceramic materials without a reduction stage during glost firing. These inks can be applied to earthenware, stoneware, bone china and fine china.
Core ceramic inks for digital printing on architectural glass
Our SPECTRUM series of high-performance core ceramic inks used in digital printing on architectural glass offer built-in gloss and are available in seven colors: blue, green, white, orange, red, black and yellow. For complete custom colors, Vibrantz’s in-house color experts can also provide custom color matches.
These highly durable ceramic digital printing inks are fused to the glass, providing a long-lasting print. Ideal for outdoor applications, they remain colorfast over long periods and are resistant to scratches and abrasions.
The versatility and high-resolution capabilities of these inks allow for a wide range of printed images, including photorealistic images, text, variable graphics and patterns. Additionally, the look of textures like wood, grain, granite and marble can be produced with excellent results. Transparency and opacity of the print are both highly controllable which is ideal for solar control and privacy glass applications.
