Spectrum of CDP-applications

in comparison to other glass decorating technologies

The CDP is a synergy between the conventional Digital Printing and the Ceramic Silkscreen Printing. It is combining almost every advantage of both technologies.

Using the CDP almost every effect of the Silkscreen Printing can be achieved. Only if thick layers (S>0,1 mm) or floodfilled areas of monochrome special-colors are to be produced, the Silkscreen Printing might show more performance. The DipTech inks of the GlassJet can be combined with a variation of different ceramik-ink-systems, but it is strongly advised to carry out preliminary tests first, due to the different nature of different inks.

The GlassJet CDP system can print floodfilled areas and frames like roller-coating and silkscreen does, but this is only oeconomical if a wide variety of shapes are to be coated.

The effects of the CDP are widely comparabel to the effects that are achievable using an airbrush-system. One can think about a digitally controlled airbrush-system, where every drop can be controlled individually.

Carbon sketches, technical drawings, watercolor, crayon artworks as well as photographic images can be reproduced on glass. Even simulations of glass-bricks, streak-metal, wood and other natural surfaces are possible.

Sandblasting satination effects can be produced in a vast variety. Colors can be involved as well. Hereby the preference is focused on very fine details, more then on large floodfilled areas.

Very fine intriguing interference-effects are possible by using dot-sizes of 0,07 mm and clean line-distances of 0,2 mm (see picture).

The mainly opaque nature of the inks is allowing to achieve different effects by the application of the colors in different print-sequences.
