Durst, a leading manufacturer of digital inkjet printers, recently demonstrated a new way of decorating glass at Glasstec 2010 in Düsseldorf.

Using its Rho 700 flatbed printer and its innovative Sol-Gel ink, Durst continuously digitally printed on glass and offered samples for visitors to take away.

The Sol-Gel UV ink supplied by Durst is organically pigmented and offers high ecological standards. Sol-Gel ink actually forms a chemical bond with the glass after heating to 200°C to provide unique resistance characteristics. Many tests on Durst's Sol-Gel ink have been conducted and have proven its excellent adhesion, durability and chemical resistance.


As a result of the resistance characteristics of the Sol-Gel inks and digital inkjet technology, the Durst glass decoration system offers new business opportunities for interior design applications. It is capable of full scale production runs of interior fittings for large retail chains or glass furniture, for example, and is also able to produce one-offs and prototypes, such as boutique interiors or temporary outdoor signs. The Sol-Gel ink is available in CMYK with options of White and Satinato, for imitation of satin glass.

Durst has over 75 years experience of imaging technology and was one of the first companies to perfect large-format digital inkjet printing.
