    Why use CeramiGlass™ over ceramic enamel as the obscuration band on transportation glass? 

    • Zero VOC's - Yes, none.
      • No organic polymer haze defects from VOC's after the lamination process, common from the use of ceramic enamel.
      • No VOC boiling, which may cause splatter of ceramic enamel to harden on oven rollers.
    • Zero Heavy Metals - Including lead and mercury.
    • Cure Temperatures - Fully cured at 370°C (698°F) or 650°C (1202°F).
    • Energy Usage Reduction - Depending on production processes employed, use of CeramiGlass™ may significantly reduce plant energy cost.
    • Green Strength - Ceramic enamel has to achieve enough green strength, through high heat, to go into the front/side windshield bending process. CeramiGlass™ has already cured by then and will not crack or cause ANY issues in the bending process:
      • No ink transfer from an uncured product, as ceramic enamel often shows. In surface #2 applications, CeramiGlass™ can withstand the bending process with no defects after being exposed to moderate heat - 177°C (350°F).
      • No clip, tong, or mold marks from the bending process. CeramiGlass™ is already cured!
    • Production Speed Enhanced - Depending on production processes employed, use of CeramiGlass™ may increase production speed.
    • Water Clean-Up - CeramiGlass™ cleans up easily with warm water.

    CeramiGlass™ glass coating is as hard as ceramic enamelbut isn’t frit

    Why do automotive and appliance designers choose CeramiGlass for their products?

    • More opacity with less material applied
      • CeramiGlass™ application ≈ 0.8 mil
      • Ceramic enamel application ≈ 1.2 mils - 1.4 mils
    • CeramiGlass™ generally weighs less than ceramic enamel in obscuration band applications.
    • No optical distortion burn line as seen in ceramic enamel obscuration bands.
      • CeramiGlass™ lessens distortions that help improve the look of Heads Up Displays (HUDs).
