We produce smalt of different colors and shades for
Smalt is a material designed to expand the palette of natural namely, stone materials.
This was a great breakthrough for the use of smalt as a lining material for pools, for facade mosaics in the weather conditions of the north-west, the manufacture of finished bulk products from smalt of any shape and complexity. The wide range of colors allows satisfying the tastes of almost all possible requirements of mosaic artists.
From the ecological point of view, the glass, being dielectric and one of the safest materials, can be used at the household level (cladding of kitchens, baths, toilets, floors, ceilings, etc.). In addition, the possibility of obtaining smalt in the form of multi-colored pebbles rolled in seawater can be used for the decoration of mirrors, frames, glass, fireplaces, furniture, etc.
Nowadays most of the smalt produced on the market is made by sintering, which entails restrictions in its use because of lead in its structure, so its color is not stable and it is capable of fading, and the smalt itself collapses under the influence of direct sunlight. In addition, it has a limited area and the inability for the mosaic artists to cut off the required geometric shape of the module.
While smalt, synthesized by glass technology, has no such disadvantages and flaws: the color is stable, it does not fade when exposed to ultraviolet radiation, and cutting at any geometric shape is possible. Smalt is harmless when it is used for children creative works.
Durability and resistance to vibration loads allow using this type of material in extreme conditions: subway, railway, a cladding of any type of transport stops.
