Description

Screen Printing - Cridecor® is a curved enamelled glass where the frit pattern is applied by means of a silkscreen on a flat glass ply. The process consists of screen-printing a bespoken pattern or simply full frit (spandrel applications) on one of the surfaces of the flat glass panel, applying one or more passes, using one or more colours by repeating the process.


Before proceeding with the bending (annealing, tempering or heat strengthening) the paint has to be dried out . With the bending of the panel at around 600ºC, the ceramic frit gets vitrified becoming now part of the glass itself allowing for silicone structural glazing on this treated surface.

In curved glass, unlike to what happens in flat glass where toughening or heat strengthening is a must to bake the ceramic frit onto the glass surface, we can have curved annealed panel enamelled. During the slumping process we are submitting the frit to high temperature (600ºC) which vitrifies the frit applied.
