We can apply a number of additional treatments to change the functionality and finish off your glass.
There’s a number of preparations and chemical treatments that can be applied to glass post-processing.
One of the most common is painting – colour-backed glass finds its ways into many thousands of homes and other buildings every year as splashbacks and wall panelling. Other treatments applied in the factory can impart properties to the glass to make it water repellent, easier clean, and lower in condensation.
Films and Motifs
Some uses of glass call for specific visibility motifs to be applied to the glass – this can be achieved by screen printing the surface with a special ceramic paint (generally prior to toughening) or with an adhesive design.
Self-adhesive films that cover the whole surface of the glass are also available – these offer a range of benefits including protecting the surface from vandalism and other damage. They can also play a role in security and impact protection as part of an purpose-designed system.
