SCHOTT presents its glass products for museums at Exponatec

Recently introduced MIROGARD® products at the center of attention - The specialty glass expert SCHOTT will be presenting its range of products for use by museums, art galleries and exhibitions at Exponatec in Cologne, Germany, from November 18 – 20, 2015 (SCHOTT Booth 3.2 B 059).

The focus will be on the enhancements to the MIROGARD® product family, “Protect Ultra” and “DARO,” as well as on anti-reflective AMIRAN® display case glass and semi-transparent MIRONA® mirrored glass.In addition, SCHOTT Sales Manager Ulrich Huber will be giving a presentation entitled “Normal glass was yesterday ...” on all three event days.

The picture glazing glass MIROGARD® Protect Ultra that SCHOTT introduced in mid-2015 scores points with its incredible stability, its very light weight of 6.5 kg/m² and its minimum thickness of only 2.95 mm. This shatterproof laminated glass thus protects artworks in museums and galleries from splinters and transport damage. In addition, MIROGARD® Protect Ultra also offers 99.9% reliable protection against UV rays and has a high-quality anti-reflective coating.

With the product version MIROGARD® DARO (Durable Anti-Reflective and Oleophobic) that was presented only this September, the oleophobic, fat-repellent coating allows for fingerprints, water stains and dirt to be wiped away easily using a soft, damp cloth. The DARO coating is also available on MIROGARD® Protect Ultra.

Furthermore, SCHOTT will also be presenting its well-known glazing solutions AMIRAN® and MIRONA® at the exhibition. The highly light-transmissive AMIRAN® display case glass is known for its anti-reflective coating that reduces residual reflections to 1%. The semi-transparent MIRONA® mirrored glass can also be used as a mirror or as a transparent element. When it is dark behind the glass, MIRONA® presents itself as an attractive mirror. When the light is turned back on, it transforms itself into a transparent window – a surprising phenomenon that allows for objects to be displayed in a clever manner.

The 21 m long and 2.80 m high display case that contains these exhibits at the German Book and Script Museum in Leipzig is in itself a complete work of art. The semitransparent mirrored glass SCHOTT MIRONA® provided an innovative solution for presenting these milestones in media inventions in an impressive manner. Photo: SCHOTT.
