Leading Glass Industry Publication Showcases Beauty and Design Versatility of New ImagenGlass
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 15, 2010 - Jockimo Incorporated - a leading innovator and developer of advanced architectural products and specialty art glass - today announced that its new ImagenGlass(TM) is featured on the cover of Glass Magazine's April 2010 issue.
Recently introduced ImagenGlass(TM) (pronounced "Imagine" Glass) offers extremely high quality images for Specialty Laminated Glass (SLG) designs. It is an exciting new process that opens unlimited design capabilities for architects and photographers that are only limited by one's imagination. The word "Imagen" means image, or picture, in Spanish.
The residential installation depicted on the April cover of Glass Magazine captures both the dramatic design versatility and vibrant imagery of new ImagenGlass. The ultra modern decor is highlighted with bold colors and crystal clear glass art images all throughout this concept kitchen -- extending from the bright and cheery countertop to the beauty of naturally themed windows and is continued overhead with rich and colorful continuity in the lighting.
New print technologies -- utilizing special photographic quality dyes applied to PET foil and laminated inside of glass to ASTM standards -- allow ImagenGlass to create vivid images with extreme clarity and sharpness that far outperforms any other printed image glass products on the market today.
"Printing on glass ... or printing on film and laminating it inside of glass ... is very popular today," notes Jockimo President, Tim Czechowski. "However, until now, existing print technology generally produced oversized images with visible dot patterns or a grainy, fuzzy look ... often a result of poor images that were too pixilated or with unsightly jagged edges due to over resolution of an image."
"We are extremely excited about the unlimited design possibilities offered by the crisp and clear imagery of ImagenGlass and we are honored that Glass Magazine chose it for their April cover," adds Czechowski. "And we know that once architects, designers and photographers see it ... and experience it ... they'll be excited too. Everyone agrees ... ImagenGlass is unlike any other product currently on the market."
ImagenGlass can be fabricated in various thicknesses for desired strength, depending on its application. It can be provided as insulated glass units, glass flooring, fire-rated glass and many other specialty decorative glasses. Maximum image size is 56" wide by 120" long.
