Starlac - Brilliant Lacquered Glass

Starlac lacquered glass by Starlac Glass Pvt Ltd is an ideal solution for commercial and residential spaces. A lacquered glass using the best available float glass and Ultra-Clear glasses, so the color you specify is the color you see.

A proprietory, state of art paint technology is used to manufacture and fabricate Starlac lacquered glasses in limitles color options using a heat cured single component aquabased system. Size ranging from 12'' x 12'' to 72'' x 144'' are possible, with reproducible color consistency from the first piece to the last piece.

How is it made ?

  • Color glass starts with extremely high-quality, low-iron glass Ultra Clear Glass. This is a glass with less blue-green tint of regular glass, so that the color you specify is the color you see. This is especially important to create whites that are true white instead of aqua, on any pastel colors like a energy yellow, and so that the reds stay vibrant and aren't neutralized in any way. We then clean each sheet of glass to mirror-quality specifications, which is the highest standard in the industry.
  • The custom-mixed color is applied to the second surface (the back) of the glass in a controlled, uniform thickness without any messy foreign particles. Due to our computerized color-mixing system, color results are accurate and repeatable, days, weeks or years into the future. The color is also checked for accuracy with a state-of-the-art spectrometer.
  • Starlac Glass Pvt Ltd heat cures the paint layer through carefully monitored ovens to allow the paint to cure strong, without becoming brittle. This is important for the fabrication step of cutting and edging, because if the paint is too brittle, it will chip along a cut and leave a ragged edge. A little flexibility in the final product allows the cut to be clean. However, a coating that is too flexible can peel off, so there's a true science in coating-to-glass technology that we take very seriously in achieving the fine balance.
  • The color layer is protected with an extremely durable backing paint layer that not only protects the color layer from scratches during handling, but also adds to the opacity of the color - so that no mastics or wall flaws show through the front of the the installation. This two-coat process is unique to the industry and keeps the color safe from harm after it leaves our factory.
  • The last step involves heat-curing both the color layer and the backing paint layer together. This creates a bond that makes the entire process final. Starlac Glass Pvt Ltd cuts clean and remains stable throughout the life of the product. This final heat-curing step also burns off any remaining VOCs from the product so that outgassing at the final destination is eliminated. Starlac Glass Pvt Ltd continually tests product to ensure that the quality is to the standard we expect.
  • Our single component, heat-cured process is what separates our coatings from all the rest with an exceptionally high-quality, durable, and stable product.
