FAQ / T's & C's
Can you print different densities of frost?
Yes we can print anything from a 1% to a 200% density of frost. This is also the case for white and any other Ral or Pantone. We can also print seamless / smooth fades, graduations, frits etc…
Why up to 3 layers?
As we can print a single strike, double strike or multilayer, we can create transparent, translucent or opaque images / designs, viewable from one or both sides of the glass, depending on your requirements.
Why do you print on an optically clear PET window safety film?
As the film is completely optically clear it makes the design / image seem as though it has been printed directly on the glass! The inks cure onto the film and are therefore scratch resistant. The film also makes the glass shatterproof to British and European Standards; BS 6206 and EN 12600. The film has UV inhibitors in the adhesive layer which block out 99% of UV rays so stopping any internal fixtures, fittings, furnishings, stock etc… from fading. We can print on various grades of film from 2mil / 50 micron up to the heavier gauge bomb blast films. We generally print onto 4mil / 100 micron film as this covers most requirements within one installation.
