Spandrel glass can be created in a couple different ways – one is by applying ceramic frit enamel to the glass with a Union Tool roller coater. Our coater can handle glass sized up to 84″ x 144″. The ceramic frit is then permanently fused onto the glass through a heat strengthening or tempering process.
Enamel or translucent ceramic frit can be applied as a solid backing or silk screened to achieve geometric shapes (such as lines or dots) for special shading applications. Our equipment is capable of handling custom silk-screening of up to 80″ x 144″ in size.
Ceramic Frit glass products are available in a multitude of standard colors as well as custom colors.
Spandrel glass can also be created by using an Opaci-Coat. Opaci-Coat-300 is a one component, water-based silicone coating that is fully cured to a tack-free silicone elastomeric film, providing opacification in any color to glass. Opaci-Coat 300 is available in standard colors of Black, Primary White, and Warm Gray, as well as many Custom Colors.
Custom color matching is available by special order. Contact us for more details.
