Decorative techniques

With so many technical possibilities when it comes to decorating your glass, it is easy to lose sight of the best option.

From transfers and manual and automatic screen printing to various coating methods and gold and platinum printing – the portfolio is diverse. Innovative decoration methods are particularly popular, such as relief prints, laser decorations and UV ink technology with its broad spectrum of colours.

SAHM disposes of a special glass hardening process. The special surface created by this makes the glass less likely to break when subjected to mechanical and thermal stress. Even glasses already tempered during the course of glass production can be individually decorated using UV ink technology at SAHM.

Let’s talk about it! And what's more, we can also manufacture large batches in a very reasonable period.

Dekor-1

SAHM Automatic printing

Using top-quality 8-colour silk-screen lines, SAHM can rationally manufacture even complex decors. Suitable for logos and promotional decors.

Dekor-2

SAHM Special gold or platinum

Glass decoration with valuable precious metals can ornament a company logo or the rim. Glazes with a proportion of genuine precious metals are used for this process.

Dekor-3

Relief glass

A subtle but classy way of presenting the brand in the material glass, creating a haptic brand experience.

Dekor-4

SAHM Frosting

By treating the glass in acidic immersion baths, the surface of the glass becomes slightly rough. A frosting effect is created that makes decors appear more velvety.

Dekor-5

SAHM Relief Printing

SAHM relief printing is the cost-effective alternative to relief glassware. It is a way to achieve decors that appear in relief and are tangibly intriguing to the observer yet even possible in small production runs.

Dekor-6

SAHM Thermo Colours

SAHM thermos are decorative glazes that change shades depending on how they are filled (hot or cold). This can result in some truly »enchanting« effects.

Dekor-7

UV ink

Ecosensitive, UV-curable screen printing inks are free of any solvents and risky heavy metals. They are famous for their excellent colour brilliance which survives even hundredfold washes and allows for photorealstic illustrations.
