The colour of the Glaskeramik results from the chosen glass source and its inherent opacity or translucency; nevertheless we have some ability to generate different outcomes with the same material with some programmed adaption, research and also via lighting.
Polar White: waste glass from the protective ultra-white glass used in PV production
Ice Nugget: sourced from recycling 6-8mm thickness low-iron glass waste
Light Grey: made from the waste in the production of metallic laminated solar shading glazing
Jade: sourced from recycling float glass, whereby its iron content provides the green hue
Ocean Blue: sourced from recycling blue coloured mineral water or beer bottles
Green: sourced from recycling green (usually beer) bottles
Champagne Brown: waste from the production of beer and German Champagne brown bottles
Black: produced from the defective production of grey float glass sheet
The surface of the slabs, on exiting the ovens, is naturally patinated and textured; this has not only a great feeling to touch but also diffuses light in a half reflection. When continuing the processing we can polish off this surface and with that transform the 2D effect into 3D effect better showing off the crystalline structure.
All colours are in stock sheets
