Blackpearl by Glaverbel - a unique type of glass for matching spandrels

In its never-ending quest for integrated architectural glass solutions, Glaverbel is launching Blackpearl - a glass with exceptional aesthetic and processing properties, the ideal choice for architects looking for a perfect balance between spandrel and vision glasses.

It is also the ideal choice for processors seeking to enhance the way they manage added-value projects.

Blackpearl is a coloured glass with a light transmission close to zero, in other words it is almost perfectly opaque. This product offers long-lasting mechanical strength and chemical resistance. Blackpearl is an excellent example of Glaverbel's desire to innovate by developing glasses that offer both the processor and the specifier considerable benefits.

An aesthetic solution for harmonious façades

Designed to be used in double glazing on the spandrel section of the façade with the coating facing towards the inside of the building, Blackpearl is the perfect solution for architects and façade designers aiming for a seamless transition between vision and spandrel areas of their building regardless of the type of glass being used in the vision (for example, solar control glass or thermal insulation glass).

Benefits for the processor - managing value added processes

When making spandrels, processors generally have to use enamelled toughened glass that has been manufactured to order and is therefore subject to variable lead-times. Blackpearl, however, is available in stock sheets that can be processed in the same way as other float glasses (cut, toughened, ground, etc). This means that the processor can react quickly to projects in progress and offer their customers an optimal service.

(AGC) of Japan has solved problems in lowering the defect-free rate for the production of fifth- and sixth-generation (5G, 6G) glass substrates, and is expected to tap the market with products with higher price competitiveness in 2006 to grab more market share in the 6G substrate businessIn addition, Wang added, the aggressive capacity added by both Corning of the U.S., the world's No. 1 substrate supplier, and AGC, the No. 2, will lead to price drops for glass substrates and will especially benefit TV panel makers such as AU Optronics Corp. (AUO) and Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corp. (CMO) in TaiwanCurrently, Wang pointed out, a 6G substrate is priced at about 27,000 to 30,000 Japanese yen, about 1,000 to 2,000 yen lower than in the third quarter of 2005.
