DIAMANT

DESCRIPTION

DIAMANT is a highly transparent extra clear glass, which has very little residual colour. It has a unique appearance and very specific optical qualities.

DIAMANT is a float glass manufactured using the same process as PLANICLEAR clear glass. Its very low iron oxide content gives it optimum clarity.

PRODUCT APPLICATION

DIAMANT is designed for numerous applications in which its unique transparent appearance and optical qualities are of particular advantage. It can be used for:

  • Museums: for displaying and protecting exhibits with virtually no colour distortion
  • Architecture and furniture: for its greater transparency and neutrality than that of PLANICLEAR clear glass.

Main applications

  • Interiors: partitions, doors, shower screens, display cases in museums, screens in banks.
  • Furniture: extra-thick glass table tops, shelves and countertops.
  • Shop windows and commercial frontages: Structural glass assemblies to emphasise the transparency and lightness of the façade.

Special applications

  • DIAMANT is suitable for all applications where maximum UV transmission is required: photocopiers, medical equipment etc.
  • DIAMANT is also used as the base glass for VISION-LITE PLUS anti-reflective laminated glass.

It increases the transparency of the anti-reflective glass and improves colour rendering.
 

ADVANTAGE

DIAMANT has the following advantages compared to ordinary clear float glass:

  • Excellent transparency: its light transmittance is greater than that of conventional glass, in particular when using extra thick substrates or assemblies
  • High neutrality in transmittance: optimised colour rendering and contrast. The colours of objects remain vivid and natural. This quality is very important in applications such as display cases in museums and jewellers etc.
  • Virtually colourless: when used in thick configurations (for example: STADIP PROTECT laminated glass), the use of extra clear glass results in a virtually colourless product. The green tinge, inherent of ordinary clear float and more noticeable in greater thicknesses, is substantially reduced
  • Brightness and depth: without the green reflection along the edge of the glass, DIAMANT produces a particularly bright, true colour when used in the manufacture of lacquered or enamelled glass (for example: PLANILAQUE EVOLUTION, EMALIT EVOLUTION, SERALIT EVOLUTION). This quality is especially evident when white lacquer or enamel is used.

 

RANGE

DIAMANT is available in a range of thicknesses, from 3 mm to 19 mm.

GUIDELINE

The installation possibilities and recommendations for DIAMANT glass are identical to those for PLANICLEAR clear glass.
 

STANDARDS AND REGULATION

DIAMANT extra clear float glass conforms to standard BS EN 572-2 and carries the relevant CE marking as required.
 

PROCESSING CAPABILITIES

DIAMANT is a float glass. It can therefore be processed in the same way as PLANICLEAR clear float glass.
