Ferro to Offer Full Solution for Glass Printing, Local to Brazil

At the booth: Live demonstrations of leading-edge digital ceramic glass printing, stunning displays of digital and screen printed glass for multiple applications, and more.

Ferro, a leading provider of functional coatings and colors for glass, will exhibit together with Dip-Tech for the first time at the Glass South America 2018 show, Booth #769. The show will take place at the Convention Center São Paulo Expo, May 9-12, 2018.
When Ferro Brazil started its porcelain enamels production in Sao Paulo back in 1935, who would have imagined that 83 years later it would lead the Brazilian digital glass printing market? Yet, that’s exactly what has happened now that Dip-Tech is part of Ferro. 

While Dip-Tech printers started as a niche solution for customized printing, its most advanced NEra printers, are now successfully used for varied types of transportation and architectural glass projects  traditionally handled by screen printing. These new Dip-Tech printers are capable of printing at high speeds, up to 450sqm/hr for dots and line applications, and up to 300sqm/hr for automotive frames, while delivering superior quality and yield. With Dip-Tech machines having printed over a million panels of transportation glass printed so far, along with tens of thousands of printed architecture installations, it is clear that digital will continue to take a growing part of the market from screen-printing – its already happening. 

Ferro Brazil has been a reliable partner for the flat and container glass market for many years, providing glass enamels for automotive, appliance and container glass. In addition, Ferro Brazil also provides frits and colors to the ceramic tile industry and special pigments to many other industries, among them architecture and interior design.

“Dip-Tech and Ferro working jointly, with two sites and more than 140 employees in Brazil, reinforces our reliable supply capabilities, enabling extensive local inventories of digital ceramic inks, colors and glazes for glass decoration,” said Nivaldo Bensi, Country Manager, Ferro Brazil. "In the same way, technical assistance and support for customers is available through the expanded local team.

Live printing demonstrations and other booth highlights for varied markets

The impressive capabilities of New Era Technology will be demonstrated live at Glass South America, with a GPi printer working continuously at the Ferro booth.  In addition, the booth itself will showcase printed glass panels, displaying varied applications for high-end exterior and interior design, printed with screen and digital printers using Ferro inks.

Ferro will also showcase a variety of screen printing enamels for automotive, flat and container glass, tailored for the highest requirements, that are already widely used in Brazil.
