BACKLIGHT MARBLE is lightweight shatterproof safety panel in stone material laminated with GLASS sheets by MARMI DI CARRARA
High process technology and high new performing raw materials, are essential to have this new excellent panel
Some marbles, granites or stones, gauged in thin thicknesses, gain transparence, outstanding colors and natural drawings. Rare and precious onyxes can be used too, even if they have natural cracks. The decorative thin layer of stone laminated to the GLASS , combines the beauty of the first to the excellent mechanical characteristics of the last, all in one single new product, the BACKLIGHT ONYX
To understand the technical characteristic of BACKLIGHT ONYX BACKLIGHT MARBLE panel is necessary understand the technical characteristic of a common stone-GLASS panel: the specific gravity of GLASS is the same as the stone (2700 kg/cu m), so, the GLASS has only the function of trasparent layer support to thin layer of stone. The weight, in kilograms, of a common stone-GLASS panel is calculated with the following formula: surface area of the stone-GLASS panel (example 1.00 sqm) multiplied by the thickness of the stone-GLASS panel (example 0.016 m), multiplied by their specific weight 2700 kg/cu m (1.00 x 0.016 x 2700 = kg 43.2). So, the weight of a common stone-GLASS panel of 16 mm thickness is 43,2 kg/sqm. Well, attention please, the weight of BACKLIGHT ONYX panel of same thickness 16 mm, is only 32 kg/sqm. This weight reduction is possible thanks to new patent stratification of composite layers of stone and GLASS that reduce the specific gravity from 2700 kg/cu m to 2000 kg/cu m.
BACKLIGHT ONYX is lightweight shatterproof safety panel, flexible and elastic to shock. Weight 32 kg/sqm.
BACKLIGHT ONYX panel stratification, vacuum with heat cycle and in absence of resins,BACKLIGHT MARBLE is the maximum quality guarantee in terms of:
• security purpose (in case of shocks)
• durability of the transparent laminated GLASS with light transmission rate (except stone) more than 85%
• humidity condensation resistance (except stone)
• high temperature resistance (except stone)BACKLIGHT MARBLE
• radiation UV resistance (except stone)
Usable types of stone
It is possible to use any stone, once being checked in advance for the level of transparency, after gauging to thin thickness.
BACKLIGHT ONYX panels can be cut by traditional machinery using normal tools of GLASS industry or marble industry;
Types of application
Interiors: shelves, work plans, internal walls, enlightened walls, enlightened false ceiling, desk tops, tables, door claddings, vanity tops, etc.
BACKLIGHT ONYX panels may be used also outdoor, in properly framed metalwork.BACKLIGHT MARBLE
