Product description
With 100% post-consumer content, this product avoids the use of a binding material to bond the glass cullet, typical in other recycled glass products that with a lower recycled content. Though this does contribute to a higher cost.
Its appearance is more similar to a natural stone such as Onyx, with excellent consistency, depth and lustre. Its benefits over natural stone materials are its increased hardness, abrasion and scratch resistance while also being lighter.
Due to the manufacturing technique it is inherently thick (20mm+) and is available in limited panel sizes.
Easy to maintain thanks to an extremely low porosity, its translucency makes it ideal for backlit applications.

Intended applications
• External envelope
• Internal cladding
• Backlighting
• Work surfaces
