Schott adds new hues to colour-effect glass
Schott UK has introduced three new pigment combinations to its Narima collection: yellow, orange and light green. Its colour-effect glass is now available in six standard colours.
Narima is a dichroic colour-effect glass developed to meet the growing demand from architects and specifers for glass that will transform depending upon the environment. The variable iridescent formations are achieved by applying ultra-thin metal oxide coatings to a base glass plate during manufacturing with the dipping method. The characteristic rainbow effect results from the combination of highly refractive and low refractive layers. In addition, this coating is known to be scratch-proof and offers high chemical resistance. The dichroic effect glass is available in formats of up to 3.77 x 1.77m and 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12mm in thickness. It is generally used in facade or interior wall glazing, among other areas.
