Fuse-Ink is a large format, digital glass printing process capable of reproducing full colour photography, vector graphics and textures directly onto the surface. Utilizing specialised ceramic inks, free of lead and cadmium, Fuse-Ink printing is pin point accurate and extremely durable perfect for internal and external projects.
The printing process entails direct application of ceramic inks to the surface of a panel with a purpose built glass printer. The panel is then tempered through a furnace where it is permanently fused to the glass becoming UV and Scratch resistant. This process is both a time and cost efficient solution for incorporating art and architecture, opening up a wide array of creative options.
The versatility of Fuse-Ink stems from the durability and flexibility of the inks. They have the capacity to face internally, externally, inside a Double Glazed Unit or even within two laminated glass panels. The inks can also be printed on high performance glass and be teamed with coloured interlayers to give a truly custom option. Performance data for individual designs is available to assist in the development stages, turning a purely aesthetic element in to an integral performance component.
Whether designing for small scale speciality projects or large scale multi-pane developments, ceramic inks are perfect for many applications such as public art installations, building facades and signage applications. The scratch and fade resistant properties of the Fuse-Ink holds up to all elements and is supported by a 10 year warranty, many years longer than any UV printed or vinyl substitute.
