- about, glass2
glass2 is Different.
When choosing a premium surface, AEC’s and designers are always on the lookout for new and innovative materials. When a new material also entitles them to LEED Points and can perform in ways other materials cannot, they have winner. glass2 products offer flexibility for creativity in the design of kitchen glass countertops, bar tops, bathroom vanities in glass, shower doors, glass flooring, cladding and paneling. glass2 is a unique and visually appealing product, available in a variety of color and finish options. In addition to glass2’s solid surface stunning appearance, it also provides a sanitary, stain-proof, and environmentally friendly alternative to standard surface materials and other options which tout recycled glass but are composed of mostly epoxy or concrete.
glass2 is Logical.
glass2 requires no chemical sealants or impregnators, which natural stone and man-made engineered stone (quartz) absolutely requires if stain resistance is to be achieved. glass2 is not stain resistant, it is virtually stain proof. Choosing a glass countertop, backsplash or design element avoids the added cost, time, energy and frustration of a chemical applications that other materials required. Conscientious buyers are looking to avoid such chemicals in their home, especially on their food preparation surfaces which makes glass2 the best countertop choice. Repairs on glass2 are a much more simple process than natural stone or engineered stone due to the epoxy and polyester resins now used in almost all varieties. Scratches are easily repaired by a qualified stone or glass technician, bring back the surface without the noticeable “repair blemish” that happens with natural stone and engineered stone. glass2 can be and is used for both interior and exterior applications.
glass2 is Top-of-the-Line.
With glass2 you will find a glass building, glass countertop and solid surface material that offers durability, flexibility, and a “WOW” factor appearance that so many clients demand.
glass2 is Sanitary.
A premium feature of every glass2 color is that they do not absorb contaminants (including most acids, oils, or wine). Counters by glass2 provide for easy cleaning. Your vanity top by glass2 does not stain with normal use and has no odor retention, when cleaned. This material is less porous than natural stone or engineered stone. The less permeable nature of glass2 means it does not retain oxygen and prevents against harboring harmful bacteria.
glass2 is Safe.
There is a debate as to whether natural stone and engineered stone containe radon, a radioactive element which has consumers concerned. glass2 surfaces have NO radon so there is NO debate.
glass2 is Durable.
Unlike man-made engineered stone (quartz) used for countertops and other applications, glass2 does not contain any added resin, which over time breaks down with exposure to UV rays. This means glass counters or panels are perfect for exterior applications where engineered stone containing resin does not perform well.
