Product category: Float and mirror glass, Laminated safety glass (LSG)
Non-coated, basic glass - float glass
It forms the basis of all glass, regardless of whether it will be used as part of indoor or outdoor architecture. Float glass, also referred to as molten tin bath glass, is produced as part of a complex production method involving vast thermal input and a bath in liquefied tin before the batch is slowly cooled. Our EUROFLOAT consists largely of high-grade quartz sand and obtains its striking, green hue due to iron oxide impurities in the raw materials. We create brilliant extra-white float glass by using raw materials that are low in iron – EUROWHITE NG. Extra white glass catches the eye with its brilliant appearance and provides a high degree of light transmission.
For many everyday applications it is paramount that glass panes retain their intended protective effect in the event of accidental or intentional damage. EUROLAMEX LSG consists of two or more glass panes permanently bonded with a highly tear-resistant, low-elasticity intermediate layer made from a film of polyvinyl butyral (PVB). This procedure is also known as lamination of glass. The safety glass may shatter as a result of excessive stress upon impact, but the shards remain on the undamaged PVB layer. The damaged pane consequently retains a degree of residual stability and the glazed surface remains sealed. A further effect is that the risk of injuries is reduced as a result of the bond between shards and foil. We possess DIN certificates for the majority of LSG glazing (P2A, P4A).
LUXAR glass coating offers architects, interior designers and manufacturers of technical products abroad spectrum of new opportunities for creativity. Innovative magnetron technology transforms commercially available glass types, ranging from simple float glass to insulation glazing and armoured glass, into non-reflective or reflective glazing.
Our reflection-free LUXAR glass provides a direct view of reality, without intrusive reflections. The optical-interference coating reduces reflected light waves to less than 0.5% resulting in clear visibility and authentic colour reproduction. Reflection-free perspectives cater for genuine aesthetics and a high degree of visual comfort; used appropriately they increase security. LUXAR features a hard, corrosion-resistant, multi-layer coating of metal oxides whose abrasion resistance and adhesion meet DIN standards. It can be applied on one or both sides and on single glazing it ensures residual reflection below 0.5%; on insulation glazing up to 1%.
LUXAR glass coatings reveal a plethora of new creative opportunities for architects, interior designers and manufacturers of technical products. Innovative magnetron technology is used to transform commercially available glass types – ranging from simple float glass to insulation glazing and armoured glass – into non-reflective glazing.
Whether you are visiting an exhibition, at the sales counter, standing at a window display or sitting in a vehicle: reflection-free glass permits a direct view of reality. Our optical-interference coating reduces reflected light waves – resulting in clear visibility.
