Complex design ideas can be realized with high precision.  

The printing takes place on float glass. For the printing process the yellow or white gold particles are bound in a special solution and applied to the glass extremely finely in a digital procedure. In the tempering process that follows the valuable metal bonds permanently to the glass.  

In order to protect the printed design from environmental influences and mechanical damage such as scratches, the printed side is placed on the inside of the laminate towards the film interlayer and is thus protected by the glass. From the panes with real metal printing sedak manufactures insulating and safety glass up to 3.3m x 18m, also curved.
