Both lacquered glass and screen printed glass can achieve multiple solid colors on glass. So what is the difference between them, and how to choose the proper glass for decoration?
Lacquered glass is also called oil painted glass. It is very bright-colored, and the colors can be any color you can image. Some companies let the paint dry by natural withering. But it is better to dry in in a low temperature about 30-45℃, so the colors are more durable. The disadvantage of lacquered glass is that, the colors are not quite stable, may pill off after a certain time, especially in wet conditions.
Silk screen printed glass is produced in high temperature. The colors are forever stay on glass, not fading colors or pill off from glass. Another benefits is that, screen printed glass are heated to about 700℃, by the high temperature and cooled rapidly, printed glass have the high strength of tempered glass, also resistance to temperature change.
By the production method, paint on screen printed glass is more smooth than lacquered glass. Also screen printed glass can make more complex colors and patterns.
In this condition, if we choose solid color glass for wall decoration, like kitchen splashbacks, we can choose lacquered glass. But if we need an uper grade finishing, or more complex designs, it is better to have the screen printed glass, to achieve the best finishing of your concepts.
