sedak uses two methods based on ceramic inks for vivid, hardwearing printing on glass, i.e., roller-coater printing for full-coverage, single-color applications, and digital printing. After applying the ceramic inks, they are fired at temperatures exceeding 600°C in the tempering furnace so that they are permanently bonded to the surface of the glass and thus resistant to UV radiation.
