LuxPrint® is Sevasa Technologics’ anti-glare line that has revealed its ability to see through, although it was born as a valuable glass for digital printing (both with organic paints and ceramics), as well as for laminates with marble, stone or wood.

INNOVATIVE CAPACITY OF VISION THROUGH

LuxPrint® has revealed its most notable and exclusive feature: the ability to see through glass with a high image definition even from miles away. This feature, unique at an international level, has attracted the interest of architects and specifiers with anti-glare requirements in their projects. And among them the most emotional, symbolic and charismatic building in Barcelona: Sagrada Familia’s Temple.

THE CHALLENGE

The simultaneous construction of the basilica’s central towers is representing a milestone in the temple’s construction. Gaudí projected singular triangular openings to the outside in these towers to flood the interior with light and luminosity. He designed them open, but today, for obvious security reasons, they are glazed.

The team of architects in charge at present demanded as mandatory that these openings allow to enjoy different views to the outside and inside, while minimizing the possible glare towards their surroundings, as well as their visual impact.

THE SOLUTION

LuxPrint provided up to three solutions: LuxPrint® 6, LuxPrint® 8 and LuxPrint® 10. Each of these products provides a different level of anti-glare and distance vision, on face 1 and with only pure glass, without layers or additives. In addition, it is available in a large format glass sheet.

LuxPrint® 10, on an 8mm thick extra-clear base and Jumbo size, was finally chosen (LP10 8mm + optical 8mm with 2 butyrals), forming part of the massive panels of stressed stone, which reach up to 31 tons in weight (an elephant weighs 7 ) and 5 meters high and wide.

Once the main tower -this one of Jesus Christ- is finished, it will have a height of 172.5 meters, which will make it the tallest building in Barcelona.

LuxPrint is an acid etched line that enhances colors and provides elegance, allowing not only to choose the level of anti-reflection and color enhancement among its 3 options, but -and most importantly for glaziers- freeing the ideal glass side for digital printing, even in 2mm thick or extra large sheet (up to 9 meters).

It is ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications, from kitchen fronts/backspash, furniture or wall cladding to joint glass on facades, among others.
