Dark colors continue to dominate, especially black, but are there new tendencies noticeable?
Certainly there are - grey colors - already very popular outside North America, they are now also starting their trend here, but slightly different:
skai Mattex S-Bronze - a very dark graphitegrey and as part of the Mattex program with its distinct extreme matt surface, which we will showcase at the Glassbuild booth
skai Mattex – extreme matt with added value
With skai Mattex, Continental presents a new exterior surfaces program that inspires the market with an extreme matt in laminated surfaces. It has a gloss level of 2. This innovation perfectly replicates the look and feel of powder-coated aluminium with a particularly fine, yet concisely structured surface. Due to the extremely matt finish, the surface has a very high-quality appearance, an impression that is intensified when touched. The surface is particularly scratch resistant due to its grain structure. In addition, it is sealed with a PVDF-layer resulting in a particularly low surface tension that makes it easy to clean. It is highly resistant to chemicals. Due to its high temperature resistance, it shows no gloss development during either welding or bending.

Accurate digital measuring for Flat or Curved glass made easy!
Glass fabricators using the Proliner have improved their overall production process by significantly reducing the time required for measuring and creating digital templates for glass constructions. Due to the Proliner’s accuracy, expensive waste products caused by inaccurate measurements now belong to the past.
There is a clear distinction in the requirements for creating digital templates for flat glass constructions and (double) curved glass constructions. We offer special solutions for both. Operators can easily create, check and change digital measurements in the factory or on the job site and use the rapidly created DXF files for further processing or as direct input for machinery.
Since there is a clear distinction in the requirements for creating digital templates for architectural glass and (double) curved glass constructions, we developed complete glass package solutions for both.
The Proliner Architectural Glass package is a complete digital templating solution that enables architectural glass fabricators to measure, check, edit and export digital templates of balustrades, backsplashes, worktops, windows, physical templates, and other flat glass shapes on-site as well as in the factory.
The Proliner Bent Glass package is a complete digital templating solution for measuring and creating digital templates of bent glass constructions. The Bent Glass software enables glass manufacturers to model, flatten, frame and compare 3D glass shapes.
Prodim will analyze your business activities and particular requirements and use our many years of experience in the glass industry to create the best total package for improving your templating and business processes now and in the future.
