Black or White: Which Frit is Right?

Perimeter painted frit is a colored band on glass applied during the manufacturing process that serves as a barrier against UV radiation to protect the adhesive. It also provides a cosmetic benefit by concealing the adhesive when viewed from the outside. Typically, the frit is black, but white can also be an option. Which one is right for your project?
