NSG Group announced that its Metashine®-printed glass was selected for train-side passenger window of Seibu Railway’s new express train “Laview,” which is scheduled to begin operation in March 2019.

Manufactured from microscopic glass flake coated with proprietary surface treatments, Metashine® pigments produce a consistent glitter and luster effect.

The first train to be designed by Kazuyo Sejima, a world-renowned architect, “Laview” was developed to have a unique interior and exterior look. To help realize the design concept, NSG applied the automotive print technology to dot-print Metashine® on the entire glass surface to generate a deep, brilliant effect.

In addition, the NSG glass was design to improve insulation and quietness of the cabin by Japan’s first tempered/laminated glass with a sound-proof/infrared-cut interlayer, paired with the multi-glazed tempered glass with proprietary Low-E (low emissivity) coating.

With the active promotion of VA (value-added) products, NSG is focused on applying its unique technology for new product development.
