Silk screen /ceramic frit glass
Silk-screening ceramic frit onto glass panels allows designers create unique appearance using patterns and color. Silk screening process is similar as heat treated glass(tempered or heat strengthened) but before heat treating process,ceramic frit inks is applied to the glass surface by silk screen and the tempering process will bond the inks to the glass permanently ,so different from back painted glass ,the patterns or colors will last lifetime and won’t fade or disappear during the glass lifetime.
Ceramic frit glass is widely used in handrails,balustrades,glass spandrel and some areas which require privacy.

Silk-screened glass improves solar control performance and can be combined with clear or tinted glass substrates, as well as with high-performance coatings to reduce glare and decrease solar transmission.
