    Is Ceramic Glass Better Than Tempered Glass?

    2023-04-24 16:48:00  News

    We print more than 2,000 customer-specific color tones every year, in precise and identical color tones for follow-up orders. Multicolor printing is one of our core competencies. Even when it involves printing ten or more colors on a single piece of flat glass, the finest of lines and symbols are clearly visible. Our effect printing capabilities include metal impressions, matt satin-finished surfaces, mirror elements, semi-transparent colors, front and back side printing on the same glass, and haptic effect printing. QR Code and barcode printing options are also available. 

    Since almost all our prints on flat glass require high mechanical and temperature resistance, we apply mainly ceramic colors. Organic colors are mainly used as light filters. Both color types can be printed in combination on the same glass panel, and almost all color shades are available by color matching.

    We also offer functional prints, such as special colors for infrared sensors and capacitive buttons or black-panel print solutions, so that the operating elements can be perfectly integrated. We use conductive inks for printed circuits on control panels where we print circuits directly onto the glass, making the use of PCB unnecessary. This extends the lifespan and enables a thinner, more flexible construction. With suitable interfaces for the assembly of electronic components or capacitive sensors, the number of design options increases. Similar advantages can be found for printed heating circuits on glass for heating units or warming plates where foils can be eliminated to offer a very long lifespan.




    Ceramic Printed glass also called Silk Screened glass has gained wide-spread for decoration and masking on building interior and exterior facades. Ceramic printing on glass is done with special enamels which are applied to glass before it is tempered. During the heating process in tempering or bending, this enamel fuses into the glass and becomes a monolithic construction. This is as permanent as any printed ceramic like crockery at your home and all technical characteristics are same as that of unprinted glass. It is life long and does not deteriorate with weather, detergents, normal acids or alkali. The methods of applying these enamels before tempering are roller coating, screen printing, spray printing & direct on glass digital printing.



    Enameled glass is a color coated glass which is made by coating an opaque layer of special paint on the surface of glass by roller coating process and then baking it to a temperature of about 300°c.

    Is Ceramic Glass Better Than Tempered Glass?

    Ceramic Glass VS Tempered Glass: Advantages And Disadvantages


    Fireplaces/Interior Stoves = Hot Glass

    Most fireplaces and indoor cookers have glass doors, which can be made of either tempered or ceramic glass. The type of glass used depends on several factors, including how much heat the glass needs to withstand.



    Using a heating or chemical process, tempered glass is more heat and pressure resistant than normal glass. Fireplace doors are usually made of tempered glass as fireplaces are usually used with the door open.


    Ceramic stoves

    Indoor stoves have ceramic glass rather than toughened glass because wood, pellet or coal stoves are usually used with the door closed. This produces a more constant high temperature, which is higher than tempered glass can withstand. Ceramic glass also has a lower resistance and therefore allows a much higher amount of heat to pass through the glass. The approximate temperature of ceramic is 648°C (1200°F) and the 0 to tempering temperature is approximately 260°C (500°F).


    Tempered or Ceramic?


    Ceramic glass is better suited to extreme heat situations than tempered glass, but tempered glass tends to be more economical and still very durable. Tempered glass is often used where people may need to replace the glass (e.g. tempered glass fireplace). Ceramic glass also expands and contracts less than tempered glass, but this is not usually an issue with fireplaces and stoves in people's homes.
