SGG DECORGLASS®

DESCRIPTION

SGG DECORGLASS is a patterned glass which has a texture printed onto its surface. Available in a wide range of patterns and colours, it provides an infinite choice of styles and variations. A piece of clear or tinted molten glass is passed between two rollers, which emboss the pattern into the sheet, providing a highly durable finish.

Where can you use it?

The SGG DECORGLASS range is highly flexible and is designed for use in a wide range of applications, where that special touch is required.
