VETROCOLOR

Specialised glass colouring technology

Giving depth of colour, vibrancy & versatility

Vetrocolor combines a unique priming system with a specialised colouring technique.


Developed by BC Coatings, Vetrocolor combines a unique priming system with a specialised colouring technique to permanently bond coatings to glass surfaces, giving depth of colour, vibrancy and versatility.

A Vetrocolor coating applied to tempered glass provides the strength and durability to suit almost any architectural application. BC Coatings has a long and established reputation for quality and service, especially in the realm of glass coatings.

BC Coatings have been actively involved in the manufacture and the application of specialised coatings for the glass industry for over 35 years.
A system was initially developed for the adhesion of decorative
coatings on bottles (perfume, essential oils and wine).

This system of glass decoration has been modified and has evolved into the Vetrocolor Glass Coating System. The system can be utilised to decorate toughened, annealed, bent, laminated and textured glass. The range of finishes include, Opaques, Metallics, Pearlescent and Multi-coloured finishes. The Vetrocolor System has been marketed to architects and designers in recent years. Its ability to offer specifiers an unlimited spectrum of colour options quickly and effectively has led to an enormous increase in the specification of decorative glass.

As well as the Vetrocolor Glass Coating System which is applied through a spray gun system, BC Coatings are now actively involved in transferring existing glass technologies to be utilised in the screenprinting on glass and tinted/coloured laminated resins.

Adhesion.

Manufactured under exacting conditions, Vetrocolor is guaranteed to offer permanent bonding between the coating and the glass surface.

The urethane is incorporated into a system which includes associated primers and cleaners. Extensive testing has proven conclusively, Vetrocolor’s superior durability and outstanding performance on a production scale.

Vetrocolour displays excellent adhesion and resistance to chemicals and heat, maintaining colour depth, vibrancy and structural integrity.
