Fritted glass

Fritted glass

A special type of glass that uses ceramic-enamel coatings in a visible pattern such as dots or lines to control solar heat gain. The pattern is created by opaque or transparent glass fused to the substrate glass material under high temperatures. The substrate is heat-strengthened or tempered to prevent breakage due to thermal stresses.
