Coloured glass - Not only for rose-colored glasses

Colour through and through

We apply color to glass either by full-surface printing with inorganic and thus UV and temperature-resistant colors – or by using tinted colored glass. The decisive factor is the application. While printing focuses on the exact reproduction of the customer’s color, solid-colored glass is primarily concerned with the optical properties.

More widely known are photo and color filters, which can also be combined to create color effect filters, e.g. for projectors. Other applications include neutral density filters which attenuate all wavelengths uniformly – or contrast enhancement filters, as used in display glass, to ensure true-color reproduction.

Color on glass alone is an extensive topic. Rely on our experience to select the optimal material for your application.
