Spandrels with ceramic coating
Ceramic spandrel paint is applied by conveying the glass under a rubber application roller to achieve a uniform opaque surface. The ceramic frit is then fused to the glass with heat treatment to form a permanent bond. The durable, color consistent, and low maintenance coating is ideal for façades and interior design where spandrel can be used against a solid, dark background to create a dynamic surface where no light passes through.

SUMMARY OF ADVANTAGES
Due to the heat treatment process, in which the glass is subjected to high temperatures that fuses the paint to the glass, the ceramic painted pane takes on all the properties of tempered glass.
Ceramic frit paint after curing and fusing to the glass is as hard as the glass itself.
It will not scratch, crack, blister or peel during fabrication, transport, and installation.
The fused coating is also chemical resistance and will not fade, stain, or discolor upon contact with glazing compounds, sealants or gasketing materials.
In applications where enamelled glass is visible on both sides, before purchasing contact the PRESS GLASS Customer Service to discuss the expected visual effect.
The possibility of its use as a monolithic pane, as well as double or triple insulated unit has led to the use of ceramic spandrel in the following building constructions:
Back-painted glass can be used in an array of architectural and interior design applications. The full-coverage ceramic frit colors can be applied to a monolithic or laminated glass configuration. Its lightfastness, abrasion resistance and low maintenance properties make it ideal for wall cladding, railings, stairs, marker boards, signage, furniture, elevator cabs, counter tops, backsplashes, etc.
Spandrel glass, which “spans” between vision glass, conceals building construction elements between the floors, such as HVAC, wires, plumbing, slab ends and mechanical equipment. Applying ceramic frit coatings to monolithic glass or insulating glass units creates fully opaque panels that seamlessly blend and complement the other parts of a building façade
