LITEX PIX Technology

Brilliant colours in a new light

Photo-realistic appearances on glass provide new design possibilities. But not all glass types are suitable as substrates. Of particular recommendation is the „de-materialised“ extra-clear float glass DIAMANT, but also float glass or tinted glass such as PARSOL bronze, grey, green or blue can be used. Special effects can also be achieved using anti-reflective glass such as VISION-LITE – particularly when partial prints are chosen.

3. Application technical notes

The suitable glass substrates may typically be printed on surface #1 (viewing side) or surface #2 (rear side). This means that you can play specifically with reflecting or matt aesthetics.


Characteristic for the appearance of the standard version of LITEX PIX is the translucency of the colours. This allows the background to be brought into play, depending on the angle of viewing and lighting conditions. An ideal solution for interior room design, such as doors and partitions, which are normally viewed from both sides under similar lighting conditions.


At higher light intensities in the background, e.g. viewing against daylight, the standard colours may look too pale. In such situations we recommend using the „backlit“version. In comparison to the standard colours, these have less light transmittance, are printed heavier and therefore more colour intensive. A solution for externally-oriented applications in insulating units and interior space design e.g. infra-red or sauna cabins with different light intensities which are viewed from both sides.

White back-covered as diffusor

For single-sided views of images or logos we recommend a back-covering of the whole surface or only the printed image. The colour rendition is thereby more brilliant. When backlit by daylight or artificial light, the white background also acts as a diffusor. If lamps are very close behind the glass it is possible to use an „intensive white“ back covering to achieve a very uniform distribution of light.

Safety characteristics

LITEX PIX can typically be printed on normal substrate. The multitude of application possibilities will normally require some kind of safety glass to protect from injury or falling. We therefore recommend using SECURIT-H fully tempered or STADIP laminated safety glass. With backlit applications or these in insulating units, it is probable that a greater load will be applied to the glass. These applications require a higher resistance to temperature change which necessitates the use of SECURIT-H.

Installation and use

When transporting, handling and installing it is important that no adhesive tapes, self-adhesive distance pieces or other strong-marking materials are put into contact with the printed surface. Storage of the glass in the open is to be avoided and we recommend that the glass is kept from being soiled until the glass is installed. This particularly relates to concrete, paint or weld-splatter.

Installation of LITEX PIX should be carried out – as per conventional glass – in frames with dry gaskets or frameless using fittings. Should wet-glazing with silicone (neutral curing) or stuck onto walls, we recommend that this is only carried out on the non-printed side of the glass. If direct contact between the printed surface and silicone or other such adhesives is planned, the installer should ensure compatibility with the LITEX PIX. Until successful tests have been carried out by us, we recommend against use in such applications.

Cleaning and maintenance

In addition to our general cleaning guidelines, the following points for the printed surface are to be observed: For typical regular cleaning using the wet method, we recommend lots of clean water at a maximum temperature of 50 degrees Celsius and using a household mild cleaning agent (e.g. liquid dish soap) without scouring agents. Mild glass cleaners can also be used. Regardless of the cleaning method used (wet or dry, water, soap suds or glass cleaner) only soft cloths are to be used. If sufficient liquid is used then it is also possible to use soft sponges or rubber squeegees. Unsuitable and prohibited are scouring or abrasive cleaning agents and cloths, or sharp, scratching metals tools such as blades, scrapers of knives.

4. Data transfer for orders

Since the quality of the print is dependent on the original picture and the type of data sent by the customer, we use the customers data 1:1 without corrections for our high-resolution prints. Picture quality should not be below 72 dpi, image enlargement should be avoided.

Data formats: .tif, .ai, .psd


  • Images provided in RGB-colour space are changed by ECKELT into CMYK using Adobe Photoshop. In case of doubt, the customer should request an original sample.
  • Partial white backgrounds are not complete backgrounds in white or if intensive white on partial areas is desired then this should be provided on an Alpha-Channel (Extra-channel), otherwise these areas will remain unprinted (blank).

Data transfer: via ftp upload – ftp.eckelt.at
To receive a password for your data transfer please contact your representative.


5. Edge working

Standard edge working for LITEX PIX is arrissed.

Orders requiring ground edges (KGN) or polished edges (KPO) will have the corners of rectangular units matt flattened.

Drilled holes

up to 12 mm glass thickness
The diameter of the drilled hole (D) may not be less than the glass thickness (S).

Glass thickness 15 and 19 mm
Drilled hole diameter minimum 18 respectively 25 mm

Production technical minimum edge distances are to be taken into account.

Edges arrissed (KGS)

6. Marking

LITEX PIX on untreated float glass or laminated safety glass of float glass is not marked as standard.

Should safety glass be used, then these are marked as standard as Tempered Safety Glass (ESG or ESG-H).
