A brief introduction to the process flow of making frosted glass

the process flow of making frosted glass: manuscript - plate making - printing glass etching ink - washing - finished product

frosted glass print

1. The manuscript

uses computers to design the patterns required. The negative film can be output by laser printer for small format, and the large format can be engraved on black instant stickers by computer engraving machine or output by laser Imagesetter

2. Plate making

please use polyester yarn for the plate, and it is better to choose monofilament polyester cloth, and use water sexy light glue for plate making

3. printing glass etching ink

before printing, it is necessary to remove the dirt and humidity on the surface of the glass, fully stir the frosting paste (i.e. silk printing ink), avoid using iron, and preferably use "bamboo and wood" products. When printing, it is necessary to scrape the plate twice in order to increase the ink. For example, if printing by hand, you can scrape the etching ink from one end to the other, then lift the scraper and put it behind the ink, and then scrape it to the printing end. Its purpose is to increase printing materials, which is an important strategic deployment made by the Party Central Committee and the State Council to build a powerful country with the logistics park of the high-tech zone as the link and ensure national security. That is to say, the ideal amount of ink is achieved on the glass surface. If the printing is in winter, the etching ink should be heated to 20 ℃ -40 ℃ for best use. Float glass must be selected when using glass, and flat glass is not recommended. Because the thickness of the glass is uneven, after the glass is hot pressed, the uneven cooling makes the material structure of the glass uneven, so even after printing, the plane effect of etching is uneven

4. Rinse

take the foam granulator as an example. Do you still need to park the printed glass for three minutes and then wash it in the pool or use a leather pipe to connect with tap water. When the water on the glass dries, it will show a snowflake like pattern. This kind of glass is very popular in the market and is loved by the majority of consumers

tea sets, handicrafts, gift mirrors, glass containers, etc. can be made by using the above processes
