DuPont™ SentryGlas® Expressions™ Reveals Archaeological Findings

DuPont™ SentryGlas® Expressions™ interlayers are being used in the Church of Saint Stephen in Vicenza, Italy, to replace marble slabs with transparent floor panels in decorative laminated glass.

The new floor exposes archaeological findings that were discovered during renovations of the church.

The findings include a medieval tomb with Gothic inscriptions, three tombs from the Renaissance period, Roman tombs and part of the wall of the existing Roman church.

Architect Emilio Alberti executed the project at the suggestion of the Italian laminated glass supplier, Viraver . "The substitution of antique marble flagstones with panes of SentryGlas® Expressions™ decorative laminated glass works really well because of the sophisticated gradient color matching the distinctive, pink Asiago marble that DuPont was able to achieve in the decorative glass," said Roberto Alfonso of Viraver."Because of the transparent background of the pinkish, marble-like design, the tombs can be viewed perfectly, and the safety of visitors standing on the glass is ensured because of the 27 mm (1.06 in) laminated construction. SentryGlas® Expressions™ decorative laminated glass provided an elegant solution to our needs," Alberti said.
