Two simple words. Unbounded power. Since eternity these two words have challenged man to create the unthinkable, to step out of what’s present and look to the future, to not rest with what exists but think of what can be.
It is this inherent potential of What if that has enabled inventions that have redefined the way we live, work, communicate and travel. From Graham Bell’s telephone and Aryabhata’s zero to Edison’s light bulb and the Wright Brothers’ first flying plane, the What if in them enabled inventions that changed the course of mankind forever. It was their ability to challenge the status quo and look beyond what’s possible that helped them produce products and technologies to overcome common world problems and improve our standard of living.
FG Glass celebrates the power of What if and the infinite possibilities that exist within the realm of architecture. And in the true spirit of these two words, we present our most revolutionary product offering to date – digitectureTM and with it give you the power, the flexibility and the freedom to create the architecture you want and pour your imagination on glass – on-demand and in real-time. We encourage you to learn about our futuristic digital-printing product line and explore the unlimited design options available at your disposal.
PRINT VIRTUALLY ANYTHING!
LINES & DOTS
From extremely fine lines to dots with a diameter as low as 0.40 mm, even the minutest of details can now be reproduced.
Anti-slip and other functional or decorative textures can be printed for durability and brilliant aesthetics.
Print borders on any glass size and shape to achieve clean and beautiful aesthetics and remove all unwanted elements from your vision.
Any pattern be it geometric, abstract, animal skin or stone finish is now attainable.
Create photorealistic images up to 1440 dpi (best-in-industry) on glass. In other words, you can now print anything and everything.
You can now have two-colour frits (for e.g., white outside and black inside) and hence make your interior viewing extremely soothing and neutral.
WHY CHOOSE DIGITECTURE™
LIFE LONG DURABILITY
Our 100% UV-stable inks are guaranteed against color fading. This is due to the unique ceramic-based ink composition that is completely devoid of plasticizers.
EASY PANEL TRACKING
Most of the glass coatings are compatible with digitectureâ¢, so you can combine the performance of the coating with the aesthetic brilliance of digitectureâ¢ and create a facade without compromising on the energy parameters.
PRINTS ON SURFACE ONE POSSIBLE
Since the inks are heat-treated post-printing, they become completely fused with the glass surface and can even be installed facing the exterior (special rates apply).
CREATE PRECISE BORDER FRITS
Create perfectly opaque borders to conceal the otherwise unsightly spacer, butyl and silicone perimeter. This helps create neat and orderly glass-to-glass joints and is a great option for glazing in high vision areas, such as lobbies.
You can now print the colour of your choice and exactly the same pattern superimposed in black. This neutral inner treatment makes the frit almost imperceivable when viewed from inside, giving you the desired aesthetics with neutral interiors
digitectureâ¢ inks have zero percent volatile organic compound (VOC) content, ensuring healthy interiors and 100% compliance to green building norms.
Since the inks are very highly durable and fused on to the glass surface at the time of heat-treatment, maintenance is extremely easy and convenient
With its extremely high resolution (1440 dpi), Digitecture prints look absolutely realistic and non-pixelated even when viewed from extremely close range
digitectureâ¢ inks are completely compatible with all laminating interlayers and can be laminated for enhanced safety
VARYING TRANSPARENCY LEVELS
With varying levels of transparency on offer you can easily control the privacy required for your cabin or room and a unique capability is the creation of âfrostedâ surfaces in the design and colour of your choice.
PRINTING ON FIRE-RATED GLASS
digitectureâ¢Â can also be printed on our fire-rated glasses. So your fire-safe partitions and entrance doors can have beautiful design manifestations without compromising on the fire-performance
Unlike traditional acid-frosted or sandblasted treatments which contaminates due to prolonged exposure to soapy water and lose transparency when in contact with moisture or water, Digitecture frosted inks eliminate both these problems and also offer far more design and colour flexibility
SUPERIOR ANTI-SKID TREATMENT
The extremely durable and high-performing anti-skid coating can be printed in any design form. So floors and walkways printed with digitectureâ¢ can have the best of both worlds - brilliant aesthetics and very superior anti-slip functionality tested as per international standards.
With varying translucence levels possible, floors and walkways created with digitectureâ¢ can be backlit for unbeatable aesthetics.
COMPATIBLE WITH SILICONES
digitectureâ¢ is compatible with neutral silicones and can be easily installed on wood, aluminum, stone and other surfaces
