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

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.

Why do automotive designers like CeramiGlass™ for their window designs?

  • 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).
