AGC Glass North America has announced a new portfolio of back-painted decorative glass, comprised of an interior and exterior temperable back-painted decorative glass, and an interior back-painted decorative glass. Lacobel® T is float glass that is painted on one side with a high-quality temperable paint to create a glossy finish. Matelac™ T is acid-etched float glass that is painted on one side with a high-quality temperable paint to create a satin finish. Together, Lacobel T and Matelac T seamlessly combine glossy and satin finishes for interiors and exteriors, enabling designers to play with contrasting finishes for a wide variety of applications.
Each features an attractive palette of ten colors, based on the latest design trends. In addition, both products are true enameled glass after tempering, meaning they can be immediately cut and tempered by fabricators at their plant, simplifying the production process and accelerating delivery times, while delivering a consistent finish from one project to the next.
The Lacobel and Matelac family of products enhance architects’ and designers’ interior design visions with endless imaginative applications of sleek, decorative glass. Each product boasts an attractive palette of 20 contemporary colors, with 14 colors in common to both finishes, enabling designers to play with combinations shade-by-shade. Back-painted decorative glass is used in a wide range of interior and exterior applications. The sleek and stylish family of products is ideal for everything from building façades and wall cladding to cabinetry, kitchen backsplashes, tabletops, and anywhere it is important to have a tempered product that withstands thermal shock and is durable and resilient to impacts and scratching. The Lacobel and Matelac family of products are produced using high-quality environmentally friendly low-VOC paints.
