SentryGlas® Expressions™ revolutionizes the way designers and artists can use digital imaging and printing technology to create a wide range of decorative glass effects.  The technology uses a DuPont proprietary process to print directly onto the plastic interlayer inside laminated safety glass.  Resulting high-resolution imagery is securely embedded in the glass, which can add design flair to self-standing internal walls, partitions and doors, stairway balustrades, tabletops, elevators, windows or entire external building facades.  Other benefits of laminated glass include safety, security, outdoor weatherability, indoor protection from UV rays, noise reduction and energy efficiency.
