Lightweight safety glass
Chromatics is a glass and aluminium laminate – and not susceptible to catastrophic nickel sulphide breaks.
At Glasstec, there will be an opportunity for glass manufacturers, glass processors and entrepreneurs to manufacture or distribute the Chromatics product under licence.
The companies behind this licence package opportunity are Sycamore Engineering and Klöpper KG of Dortmund. Sycamore has developed the Chromatics process in the UK, where it has been exhaustively independently tested against impact, weathering, and thermal differences.
The product is an integral component of monolithic panels, double glazed units, rainscreen systems and a wide range of interior applications, and is environmentally acceptable to modern architectural needs, using no toxic elements in product or process with a significantly smaller carbon footprint than ceramic-coated tempered glass, the companies claim.
