Silkscreened Ceramic Frit Glass

Silkscreen printed glass is a special kind of decorative glass made by printing a layer of ceramic ink on the surface of glass through the screen mesh for a tempering or heat-strengthening process.

What is Silkscreened Glass


Silk-screening ceramic frit onto glass is an excellent way for architects and designers to create exciting new looks on their projects using patterns and colors. Silk-screened glass improves solar control performance and can be used on various glass substrates, including clear, low-iron, or tinted glass, to reduce glare and decrease solar transmission. Depending on which pattern, color of ceramic frit, and glass substrate you select, glass panels will either be transparent, translucent, or opaque. The process of silk-screening uses a patterned screen to transfer ceramic frit onto the surface of the glass. The ceramic frit is then fused onto the surface of the glass during the toughening or heat-strengthening process, creating a permanent bond to the glass surface.

Key Features of Silkscreened Ceramic Frit Glass

Key Product Features

Ideal for Medium to High-Volume Glass Projects

Silkscreened glass is the most cost-effective option if a repeated pattern or design is needed over a large expanse of glazing area.

Durable and Color Fast

The ceramic enamel material used in silkscreen ceramic frit Glass products is built to last. You can be confident that it will hold its color in both interior and exterior (facade) applications.

Glare Reduction

Particular silkscreened frit patterns, when used on glass, can be pretty effective at minimizing light transmission and glare conditions, making workspaces more comfortable.

Heat Barrier

Silkscreen fritted glass can serve as a partial filter for infrared radiation (heat). With heat transmission reduction, you can create a more comfortable interior space.

Privacy Without Sacrificing Views

Particular patterns and ceramic frit color combinations can work to reduce visibility into a building without fully compromising views of the exterior from within the building.

The ceramic coating is applied on face #2 on the supporting lite of glass.

* The glass must be heat-strengthened or fully tempered.  It is not recommended to expose the ceramic coating to the elements. Use on an external face should be avoided.


The ceramic coating can be applied on face # 2, 3, or 4 of laminated glass.

* All the glass plies that make up the laminated glazing should be heat-strengthened or fully tempered for exterior applications.


The ceramic coating is applied on face #2 or 3 of the insulated glass unit.

*  The two lines that make up the unit should be heat-strengthened or fully tempered.

*Certain conditions apply. Contact us for more information.

America Standards:

  • ANSI Z97.1 – Safety glazing materials used in buildings. This standard provides guidelines for safety glazing materials in residential and commercial applications, including tempered glass. It specifies the performance criteria for impact resistance and requires glass to meet certain fragmentation requirements.
  • ASTM C1036 – Flat Glass.
  • ASTM – C1048 – Heat-treated flat glass. This standard sets the minimum requirements for tempered flat glass. It covers glass thickness, surface compression, and fragmentation characteristics.
  • CAN/CGSB 12.1 – Safety or laminated glass,
  • CPSC 16 CFR- 1201 – The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standard in the United States sets the requirements for architectural glazing materials, including tempered glass. It tests the glass for impact resistance and establishes different categories based on the glass thickness and the drop height required to break it.

Australian Standards:

Architectural – 4mm to 12mm Grade ‘A’ safety glass manufactured to AS/NZS 2208-1996 Safety glazing materials in buildings and 15mm to 19mm Toughened glass.

The Australian/New Zealand standard for safety glazing materials assesses the impact resistance of tempered glass. It classifies glass based on the drop height required to break it and provides guidelines for its use in different applications.

British & European Standards

  • BS 6206 - ' Code of practice for glazing for buildings'. Part 4: 1994 'Safety related to human impact'
  • BS EN 12600:2002 - Glass in building. Thermally toughened soda lime silicate safety glass.
  • EN 12150:2015 - This European Standard specifies tolerances, flatness, edgework, fragmentation, and physical and mechanical characteristics of monolithic flat thermally toughened glass.
