Transparency – Transmission

Transparency is the main issue for glassdesign. Designing fassades, the matter of transparency is not only essential for the aesthetical performance but for the visual function (from inside and outside) and non the less for the transition of energy and light. Glass design engineering of facades is about creating well defined multifunctional skins for buildings, a fundamental factor for modern architecture in glass.

Every combination should to be recognized according to it ́s inherent properties of reflexion, transmission and absorption. There are differences between the optical opacity, the light transmission and the energy transmission of a facade, depending on:

  • the nature of the inks (opaque-translucent-transparent),
  • the thickness of the printed layers,
  • the printed areas,
  • the raster,
  • the print-position in IGUs,
  • the kind of glass,
  • the kind of solar-coating
  • and last not least the in situ situation.

The transparent character of the DipTech-color BLUE is very helpful in reproducing natural effects of air and water. An opaque BLUE can be achieved in combination with BLACK, WHITE or any of the other opaque colors.
