Alice® direct-to-glass digital ceramic printing, powered by Dip-Tech, enables any design to be reproduced in glass. Ceramic frit is digitally jetted onto the surface of the glass then baked into the glass during the tempering process resulting in durable, decorative and functional glass. Direct-to-glass printing offers significant benefits over traditional silk-screen printing and printed interlayers.
Researchers estimate that hundreds of millions of birds are killed each year in North America due to collisions with glass on human-built structures, making bird collisions one of the most significant causes of avain mortality globally. ORNILUX provides bird protection without compromising thermal performance or light transmission.
GGI is an Approved Factory Fabricator of OPACI-COAT-300®, an environmentally friendly water-based silicone coating manufactured by ICD High Performance Coatings + Chemistries. Ideal for spandrel glass and wall cladding, the OPACI-COAT-300® coating is used to produce glass solutions designed for non-vision applications. Spandrel glass is typically used on the building facade to obscure the view of mechanical systems, insulation, slab ends and other unsightly construction components. Spandrel glass can be used in insulating glass units along with the low-emissivity glass specified for a harmonious aesthetic - or, in contrast to the building envelope. OPACI-COAT-300® is available in a broad range of standard and custom colors. LEED and Health Product Declaration documentation, Mindful Materials library and AIA continuing education courses available.
