Matelux glass allows as much light as possible to enter living and working spaces while protecting them from prying eyes.
The fine etching produced by contact with acid in a closed circuit guarantees a perfectly smooth and uniform appearance of the translucent glass panels. Frosted glass is also easy to clean with AGC's FIX-IN cleaning products. This series of glasses is ideal for partitions, doors and furniture. It is also suitable for window glazing and for floor and staircase coverings (non-slip version).
Matelux offers 3 clear versions and 3 color versions. There are four additional options to choose the degree of translucency you want: from light translucency to more pronounced double-sided opacity. Matelux is treated like conventional float glass for cutting, shaping, thermal tempering and laminated glass assembly. Due to its smooth and silky appearance, it is particularly appreciated in contemporary architecture.
