Enamelled toughened glass in a range of colours
The U value of insulated Ceramalite products can be as low as 0.2 W/m2K.
Ceramalite is a high quality enamelled toughened glass, available in a range of standard colours, designed for use in the spandrel areas of curtain wall. Ceramalite can also be utilised as a wall cladding product in shower areas and kitchen back splashes.
Ceramalite is manufactured by roller coating the glass – already prepared complete with any edge working, shaping, holes and cutouts – with a water based enamelling paint. The paint is oven dried and the glass is then subjected to a heating and cooling cycle, during which the enamel paint is fired into the glass surface and the glass is toughened.
When used as spandrel panels, the Ceramalite can be used either as a single glass or in ThermoCool. The enamelled surface is normally glazed on surface 2 (counting surfaces from the external surface of the building) for single glazing or on surfaces 2 or 4 of ThermoCool.
Thermal insulation applied to Ceramalite
All forms of Ceramalite can be supplied with insulation adhesively fixed to the inner surface.
The options are:
- foam with foil backing
- mineral fibre or foam in an aluminium tray, either mill finished or polyester powder coated
- fire retardant type insulation.
