Glaskeramik stands as an Eco-friendly material which offers a wide range of applications, bringing full creative freedom and functionality. At MAGNA Glaskeramik we offer either full slabs, with a maximum extension of 2800 x 1250 mm and a standard thickness of 20 mm, or specific cut-to size pieces for any project, such as interior design or facades. Thanks to our innovative technology, we have know-how in-house capabilities to cover all kind of requirements at different project stages, as well as technical advice.
The main advantage of Glaskeramik is not only the contribution to the environment sustainment, but the acquisition of a unique, exclusive and durable material, produced under German quality standards. Therefore, at MAGNA Glaskeramik, we are there for you in every step of the way, from the purchase moment, material processing, installation procedures, till the after-sales needs. Thanks to the experience of MAGNA in this sector and the opportunity of working with some major architecture firms, we are able to offer the highest flexibility when facing any special requirements and exclusive interior and exterior projects, assuring always the highest quality.
The production process using crushing and classification processes, scrap flat glass (waste glass) is transformed into glass granulates. In a complex mixing process, the glass granulates are shaped into panels and then sintered in a patented sintering process. Subsequently the sintered panels are placed into cooling hoods and cooled under controlled conditions. In the finishing process the raw panels are calibrated, on request they can be polished and then cut to the required size.
MAGNA Glaskeramik is 100% recyclable.
MAGNA Glaskeramik can be fully used at the end of its life cycle for the recycling to new Glaskeramik or normal glass production. We are committed to take back all Glaskeramik at the end of its life cycle if transport back to the factory makes ecological sense or recommend a local glass recycling facility.
MAGNA Glaskeramik plays an important role in the careful use of natural resources and improvement of the sustainability balance in building projects and design objects. This is an enormously important factor in view of ecological requirements.
In support of the pioneering role played by glass ceramic for sustainably produced materials, we are currently working towards various sustainable certificates for MAGNA Glaskeramik.
The declaration of MAGNA Glaskeramik in the ecological product data bank greenbuildingproducts.eu, means that the advantages of MAGNA Glaskeramik as sustainable building material is highlighted in so-called GreenBuilding projects according to the DGNB and the American LEED standard.
ISO 14001 Environmental Management
Not only the product Magna Glaskeramik itself, but the entire company orientation of MAGNA Glaskeramik is designed according to today's increasingly important considerations of resource conservation and efficiency. That is why we are currently seeking certification for our environmental management system in accordance with ISO 14001 and EMAS.
Cradle to Cradle
The Cradle to Cradle concept describes a form of cyclical resource use in which modes of production are geared towards preserving created values. Since the raw material of MAGNA Glaskeramik consists of nearly 100% rejects from industrial and bottle glass production and can be completely re-added to the recycling cycle even after use, MAGNA Glaskeramik is considered a prime example of an efficient use of resources and raw materials. That is why MAGNA Glaskeramik is now aiming for an official Cradle to Cradle certification.
