Roman's Decem Expressions - digitally printed using new technology
Roman has launched what it says is a significant innovation in digital glass printing on its wetroom panels, thanks to a collaboration with digital print specialist Dimax. The Decem Expressions range is offered in three design options - Distressed Brick, Glass Blocks and a Rainforest image.
While these are on trend and designated for the higher end of the interior design-led retail bathroom market, the process lends itself perfectly to the project market.
Designers can now easily link up other design themes through a project directly onto a larger and visible position within the bathroom and there are no restrictions on colour or resolution.
This technology is based on a thermos-procedure that allows the images to be printed directly on to the glass, leaving all other areas of the glass crystal clear. This process also provides the option of a Satinato finish, which until now has not been digitally possible. Roman can control the colour and level of opaqueness desired on the glass design.
Importantly, this printing is both water resistant and protected against abrasion, which makes it ideal to use in the bathroom. Previously, water resistant digital print on glass could only be achieved by using a difficult adhesion process, claims the company.
