Digitally printed laminating interlayers;

SentryGlas® Expressions™

The Printed Film Co Ltd are proud & delighted to announce that we are official partner approved resellers & distributors of Kuraray SentryGlas® Expressions™ (formerly Dupont SentryGlas® Expressions™), which perfectly complements our existing range of printed laminating interlayer products.

SentryGlas® Expressions™ interlayer’s are digitally printed in high definition using patent protected proprietary inkjet and specialised Butacite® PVB interlayer technology. The result is astonishing imagery / decorative graphics directly printed onto the PVB interlayer, which is then laminated within any required specification of safety glass to BS 112543.

Virtually any image can be reproduced in any colour (including white) and to varying degrees of vibrancy, density, opacity or translucency, as well as to certain predetermined light transmission parameters. The decorative laminated safety glass can be incorporated into a wide range of applications including; windows, doors, skylights, canopies, facades, curtain walls, storefronts, retail displays, glass balustrades, wall cladding, office partitions, glass floors & stairs etc…

The finished product can be installed either internally or externally & comes with a 10 year warranty against colour fastness.

Digitally printed PET laminating interlayer;

Outstanding visuals printed, at a very high resolution, onto our optically clear laminating interlayer, perfect for encapsulation between 2 or more layers of glass either by EVA, PVB, TPU or cold pour lamination. By printing up to 3 layers, including white ink, we can create translucent, transparent & opaque images / designs, viewable from one or both sides of the glass, depending on your requirements.

We can also print onto our blockout white or diffuser PET laminating interlayer.
