Our SPECTRUM series of high-performance core ceramic inks used in digital printing on architectural glass offer built-in gloss and are available in seven colors: blue, green, white, orange, red, black and yellow. For complete custom colors, Ferro’s in-house color experts can also provide custom color matches. 

These highly durable ceramic digital printing inks are fused to the glass, providing a long-lasting print. Ideal for outdoor applications, they remain colorfast over long periods and are resistant to scratches and abrasions.

The versatility and high-resolution capabilities of these inks allow for a wide range of printed images, including photorealistic images, text, variable graphics, and patterns. Additionally, the look of textures like wood grain, granite, and marble can be produced with excellent results. Transparency and opacity of the print are both highly controllable, ideal for solar control and privacy glass applications.
