Crismol® glass is used in construction sector because of beautiful and isolating reasons. Every colour is resistant to time and wheather.
Decoration of vertical surfaces
Crismol® glass in used in facades to get a unic colour, texture and brightness that give new buildings an esthetic and modern touch.
A beautiful example is the new facade our facility in Muel.
Manufacture of synthetic surfaces
Eco-friendly surfaces are produced with Crismol® glass as aggregate because of its unique and original depth and brightness. Also quartz granulates are used in this kind of slabs, that are produced with Breton technology or similar one.
Our Crismol® glass is used in countertops of main manufacturers in the world: Mirror glass, clear glass, dark green glass, opaque coloured glass... They are crushed glass from recycling industry, packed in Big bags on wooden pallets, ready to be export inside a 20' dry van container.
The non-porous salbs can be installed in kitchens as worktops and in bathrooms as decorative surfaces.
Resin based paving
Glass recycled paviment is a combination of natural aggregates, pigments and resin. Crismol® Clear glass can be used with pigments of different colours, as shown in picture.
We collaborate with leading companies in the world by manufacturing continuous paving, to produce a hard-wearing and decorative surface suitable for industrial and domestic use, both indoors and outdoors.
Cement based construction elements
During manufacturing of cement mortar, recycled Crismol® glass can be added to improve thermal isolation rate.
With this process, isolation bricks and pipes can be produced as shown in this picture. This glass based recovering pipe has been developped by a technical team of an European project about sustainability matherials.
Filter media for water
Crismol® glass is perfect as filter media to reduce water contamination in pools.
Its non-porosity quality prevent seaweeds and bacterias proliferation, reducing chemicals consumption in every cleaning batch of filter.
Moreover, because Crismol® glass comes from industries and have been never used, it is 100% glass without impurities.
Treatment of surfaces
Crismol® glass is used since many years for abrasive blasting for cleaning facades or metallic materials, especially stainless steel, achieving a metal surface treated with an optimal polish.
Decoration and craftwork
Crismol® glass has many functions as a coloured and translucent materials for use in artistic vases or glasses, perfume bottles, lamps, doors, aquariums or toilet pans or any other household item that requires a touch of colour.
The use of different coloured glass to replace stones or sand in garden areas allows landscape gardeners to create authentic works of art with their own style.
We FCC Ámbito – Glass Recycling collaborate with Architect and Landscape firms to offer them glass of the required colour and size for each type of paving or flooring: gardens, flower beds, paths, etc.
Additive in chemical industry
To improve fluidity and refractory properties, Crimol® glass is used as an additive to paints. It gives the surfaces also some roughness to prevent slips.
