Magna Glaskeramik + Ringot & Villarecci : Glaskeramik

Facade or interior fittings, plates Glaskeramik bring a touch of mystery in various degrees of translucency. This year, the manufacturer MAGNA associate his name with that of Becket & Villarecci specializing in cutting or bending of materials.

At the origin of this unusual material, a metalworking company founded in 1990 gradually acquires the competence of office of studies for facades. A few years later, his intensive research led to the creation of a new material based on recycled glass: Glaskeramik ("glass ceramics"). After grinding and sorting, the glass then converted into pieces is placed in an oven without additive, resin and other binder. A process of heating and cooling - with precise temperatures and durations - is the final phase of the upcycling process (product of better quality than the original material after recycling). The panels thus produced can then be kept in their original version, known as "patinated", or be polished, satin-finished, laminated with other materials (stone and composite glass), or even arched, engraved, milled, Microbillés to offer uses that are as different as they are surprising in terms of physico-chemical characteristics as well as aesthetics. The final product has a unique translucency, halfway between that of alabaster and frosted glass, its luminance varying very little depending on the surface finish, matt or glossy. The brightness potential of the panels can be increased by using a backlight, both indoors and outdoors. In both wall and wall facings, Glaskeramik plates can be fixed by Fischer anchors with FZP anchors or by the LabelFacade system. It can be added that MAGNA and Fisher have recently obtained an ATE: European Technical Approval, for use in facade cladding. An identical folder is in progress with LabelFacade. The material is entirely in keeping with the logic of eco-construction. On the one hand, it is produced at 100% from waste from the glass industry or from recycled bottles. At the end of its life, it can be used for the manufacture of new panels or other materials. These qualities are worth it to appear in the databases greenbuildingproducts. Eu products that are compatible with the DGNB and LEED regulations. The Glaskeramik is also the subject of an EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) and a Cradle to CradleTM certification that highlight its ecological aspects. Thus, the installation of solar panels on the roofs of the manufacturing plant provides about 50% of the building's electrical consumption. This percentage will certainly increase thanks to the installation of new generation ovens less energy-consuming.
