Twelve Super Jumbo plates (12,000 mm x 3,210 mm) of 12 mm Pilkington Optiwhite™ extra clear glass have been drilled, toughened, heat soak tested and digitally printed with white patterns. Afterwards such plates have been laminated with a SentryGlas interlayer. They have been installed on the building to provide its façade resistance, security and sound insulation.

Pilkington Optiwhite™ is a very neutral float glass with a very low iron oxide content. Compared to traditional float glass, it guarantees excellent neutrality and superb colour rendering, without any alteration.

Thanks to its high light transmission properties and the absence of greenish tint, typical of clear float glass, Pilkington Optiwhite™ is perfect for applications with exposed glass edges or as substrates for screen-printed glass.

NSG Group can supply Super Jumbo glass plates up to 20 m in length. The largest glazing dimension for the architecture currently available on the European market.
