OKACOLOR™Digitally printed glass

At a glance

OKACOLOR™ digitally printed glass is an innovative product using a specially developed glass coating technique that allows the complete reproduction of black and white or multi-colored images or solid color coating of the glass surface. Due to the high quality of the OKACOLOR™ glass coating technology, the visual results are exceptional with excellent color consistency, depth, brilliance and contrast maintained.

Depending on the build-up of the coating, which in turn depends on the graphic arrangement, OKACOLOR™ allows for digital printing on glass, which can be supplied as a safety tempered monolithic single glazing, in a laminated glazing, or insulating glass.
OKACOLOR™ glass coatings include inorganic pigments, which are not fused into the glass as is the case with screen-printed fritted glass. However, excellent adhesion is achieved for full surface coatings, and the scratch resistance is similar to that of colors applied to glass by the screen-printing process.

Key facts

  • Amazing color effects
  • Digital printing on glass of multi-colored images or solid color coating
  • Excellent color consistency
  • High contrast
  • Durable due to the high quality coating
  • Easy maintenance

Technical data

Technical Data

The thermal transmission (U-value) for OKACOLOR™ digitally printed glass will generally correspond with that for an unprinted insulating glass unit of the same basic configuration, with double glazing able to achieve values as low as 1.0 W/m2K (0.176 BTU/hr/ft2/°R) and triple glazing down to 0.5 W/m2K (0.09 Btu/hr/ft2/°R).

U-values refer to European Standard EN 673. Please contact our sales department for the corresponding ASHRAE values.

Light and solar energy transmission will depend upon the nature of the OKACOLOR™ applications selected, and we will be able to provide this data once these aspects have been determined.
