The photos will be printed on a thin gorrilla Glass which is scratch and stain resistant. UV-cured inks are used for the printing. To create a MASTERPIX a 4 layer process need to be completed.
First layer is a primer will adhere to the back surface of the Gorilla Glass and Second layer is where the image is printed using UV-cured ink on the primed layer. For opacity and contrast white ink is used on the third layer and anti-splinter film is applied to protect the inks from scratches and hold the glass together in the event of breakage on the fourth layer.
