ColourX Backpainted Glass

Product Overview

ColourX® is Gx Glass’ bespoke range of backpainted glass, a contemporary, durable and stylish design solution which is perfectly suited for a wide variety of interior glass applications, from wall cladding to furniture tops.   ColourX meets British Glazing Standards, and is available on 6mm low iron toughened glass as standard, but is also availabel in 4-19mm glass thicknesses.  Depending on the required volume our glass is hand sprayed or manufactured using one of our two automated paint lines.   ColourX is also offered with a 1 year warranty from Gx Glass on all installations when carried out by Gx Glass. 

In House Paint System and Paint Lab

ColourX is available in any colour within industry recognished paint systems, and we have our own in-house paint lab which enables us to mix almost any colour.  With our in-house system we can ensure that all painted panels produced over the course of a project are of a consistent shade using unique digital scanning technology which identifies colour shades against an agreed control sample.  This sample is kept on file for any future work requiring the same colour.

  • RAL
  • RAL Design
  • NCS
  • Pantone
  • BS
  • Farrow & Ball
  • Dulux

If you require a metallic or sparkle finish please see our Gx backpainted range.

ColourX Matching Service

If you require a specific colour for your glass the first thing we would ask you to do is email or fax the colour reference through to us if the colour is from a recognised system, if not then we would ask you to send in a small painted swatch for scanning (minimum size 50mm2).  We will then scan the sample to identify the correct pigments required for your match.

You will find details of our charges for this service on our samples page.

Environmental Impact

With over 10 year experience producing painted glass, Gx Glass recognises the importance of meeting client requirements over product quality and the possible impact on the environment.  ColourX paints have therefore been developed as a water based range, making it environmentally friendly with very low VOC levels. It has also been extensively tested for both adhesion and longevity and is fully recyclable at the end of its life.
