Customer requirements can include the application of identifying, aesthetic and/or functional elements to the surface of the glass. Paragon Tempered Glass has the ability to design and apply virtually any design, logo or text per customer specifications.
Also known as painting, screen printing is the last step prior to tempering. Using specialized, in-house printing equipment, the glass is coated with ceramic frit ink which is then made indelible by the tempering process. We can print any pattern with multiple colors using cadmium- and lead-free inks.
Identifying information and marks can be incorporated physically into the surface of the glass using either sand or laser-etching techniques. Sand etching involves propelling fine grains of aluminum oxide or silicon carbide to etch the surface of the glass. Alternatively, laser etching uses a laser beam to burn the given design into the glass.
