Product description
The unique surface finish of this high-performance concrete features embedded glass spheres that reflect light directly back at its source through a retroreflective mechanism.
This gives the material a dynamic illuminated appearance, in the correct lighting conditions, that can be used for decorative effect or discrete, integrated safety demarcation.
The placement of these spheres is controllable, allowing a random or structured distribution as desired. The process can also be applied to curved surfaces.
A proprietary reinforcement product ‘betoShell’ can be incorporated to reduce panel thicknesses.

Intended applications
• External envelope
• Internal cladding
