First full colour ceramic digital printer now in operation Synseal’s fabricated range of Evolve bi-fold doors has been enhanced with the addition of new anodised aluminium tracks and Artisan woodgrain foil colour finishes. Previously available in a choice of solid white PVC-U and golden oak and cherrywood woodgrain foil colours, the Evolve bi-fold range now boasts new woodgrain white, woodgrain brilliant white, cream, Irish oak, Chartwell green and grey foil Specialist Toughened Glass, a new company formed by marine glazing specialist, Seaglaze Marine Windows, is now operating a new TecGlass digital ceramic ink printer. The equipment was initially acquired to provide Seaglaze with black border dot fade out prints required for direct bonding glass into boats. However, after realising that Seaglaze’s demands would only amount to a limited amount of production, a new company - Specialist Toughened Glass - was formed, new premises obtained and Lambert GT Services tasked with providing all the equipment needed to support the printer. Alastair Clayton, MD of Seaglaze, said: “As soon as we saw the output from this printer we knew it was the one for us. Although Seaglaze only needed black border prints – all be it New colours for Evolve bi-folds on very complex shaped pieces of glass – we believe the ability of this machine to print in full colour at 1440dpi onto 3m x 1.6m glass will be of real interest to the architectural and interior design markets. “To our knowledge it is the only machine in the UK currently capable of doing this, and with our experience in low volume, high quality bespoke manufacture we felt that it will provide Specialist Toughened with a really unique product. With the inorganic inks applied before toughening, the colured inks ‘flow’ into the surface of the glass as it is toughened and are therefore completely weatherproof and UV stable. We see so many potential uses, especially as we can print to within 1mm of the edge of the glass, so images can be ‘tiled’ so they flow across multiple sheets.” New for 2015 Introducing our 26th pre-mixed shade Pantone® colour of the year 2015 Marsala DoorColour - the only paint system designed specifically for GRP doors!
