Two types of digital printing are offered:
• Printing on PVB
• Printing on GLASS
Cridecor® PVB DIGITAL PRINTING enables the production of dramatic designs and lifelike photographic images in a laminated safety glass. Transparent Polyvinyl butyral is printed using high-resolution ink-jet printers with specially formulated UV-resistant inks. This technology is particularly useful when reproducing the subtle differences of a graphic image.
Cridecor® GLASS DIGITAL PRINTING has revolutionised the architectural and decorative enamelled glass, both flat and curved, opening new horizons in the precision of production, speed, colour range, patterns, shapes, forgetting about the known drawbacks of the traditional silkscreening process. The inks used become part of the glass during the tempering or annealing process, enabling lamination and bending feasible getting outstanding results.

Glass Digital Printing
• Total freedom in pattern design and colour
• High precision and sharp printing
• Opaque ink, with light and solar properties as the ones used in traditional screen-printing
• Perfect solution for applications with changing patterns
