THE GLASS


 

The glass is a material known for thousands of years with a characteristic molecular structure that allows the passage of light. What we all know is essentially composed of silica, the substance that is made of sand. By adding particular substances it is possible to produce colored glasses and particularly resistant glass.

 

THE USE

Thanks to its features, its use embraces the most varied sectors and objects; just to name a few: the product for the building: objects of art and furnishings instruments and sanitary materials, jewels (in its most crystalline declination).

 

THE FEATURES

Its principal features are:

• High transparency;

• Low value of elasticity;

• High stability;

• Resistance to almost all chemicals;

• Low thermal conductivity;

• Low electrical conductivity;

 

RESOURCE FOR THE ECONOMY

It has 5,000 years of history and yet it is modern and beautiful: the glass, one of the most popular and useful materials, it revives every day in different forms and ways. Ecologically compatible material for excellence, can be recycled many times. Giving rise to ever new objects and unchanged original properties. Precisely for this continuing ability to regenerate, the glass is the best witness of the Copernican revolution that, in the common perception is recognizing at the same rejection the resource value - from an environmental and economic point of view - and not waste to be disposed of.
