Great! I found this files from Dupont website.
And i would like share here.
The following info is from www2.dupont.com:
What is SentryGlas® Expressions™?
SentryGlas® Expressions™ is the technology enabling you to create custom colors, and personalized designs, patterns, text, logos, or photographs in laminated safety glass.
How does the technology work?
DuPont prints the custom images on an interlayer, which is then laminated in-between two pieces of glass.
Does DuPont manufacture the finished decorative glass?
No, DuPont works with a network of qualified glass manufacturers (laminators) to laminate the finished glass structure.
How does the process work?
1) Architects or designers…
a. Create the custom concept
b. Specify the glass construction, sizes, and numbers of images/panels
c. Submit print ready files to the glass laminator (or possibly to DuPont)
2) DuPont digitally prints the custom images on interlayers.
3) Qualified glass manufacturers laminate the printed interlayers in-between the specified glass sandwich.
How much does laminated glass with SentryGlas® Expressions™ cost?
DuPont does not produce the final glass product; therefore, pricing must come from the glass manufacturer. As with any project, pricing is dependent on size of job, complexity of design and final glass construction.
How can I get a price estimate quickly?
If the client is not already working with a glass laminator, DuPont can facilitate price discussions with a qualified glass manufacturer. Please provide key information such as project name,
number and size of images/panels and specified glass constructions.
How does the product weather?
DuPont SentryGlas® Expressions™ has excellent weathering because of three factors:
1) Glass – keeps moisture, oxygen and pollutants away from the print
2) Interlayer – blocks up to 99% of the ultraviolet radiation
3) Inks – are formulated to be long-lasting and fade resistant
Are there any warranties?
Yes, DuPont offers a warranty against fade resistance. Qualified glass manufacturers offer a warranty on the final laminated glass construction.
What are the minimum and maximum sizes available?
Typically, no size is too small. The interlayer can be printed up to 94” width by 168” length. Greater lengths may be considered with approval by DuPont and the glass laminator.
