The Fenzi Group’s approach to low-environmental-impact products and those with reduced VOCs (volatile organic compounds) also extends to the mirror production business unit. The most recent frontier in terms of mirror-backing paints is the new line of latest-generation Fenzi products capable of contributing to the production of high-quality, eco-friendly mirrors with outstanding reflective, safety and chemical resistance properties.
Using a water base, the Fenzi Group labs developed Duralux Water Based, a complete range of lead-free, glass-silvering mirror-backing paints with extremely low VOC emissions ‒ chemical agents potentially harmful to health and the environment. This is a major innovation for mirror manufacturers, processors, end users and the environment.
Compared to the other commercially available mirror-backing paints, the special Duralux Water Based formulation makes unique performance possible ‒ including a VOC level five-times lower than the market standard, the use of solvents with reduced environmental impact, extraordinary chemical resistance and greater product durability. This is a one-coat, user-friendly painting system, convenient for curtain or spray application, completely lead-free, perfect for use on copper-free mirrors, and it can be applied on most existing mirror lines that use traditional solvent-based paints.
The Duralux line ensures a tried and true, high-performance product, one that is always updated. In 80 years of business, the Group has become a global leader in glass-processing chemicals, offering a complete range of products and setting the standard for the entire glass industry. Thanks to its considerable innovative prowess, based on know-how acquired in so many years in this market and on research and development activities consistently focused on customer needs, the Group has created a complete, always cutting-edge product range, positioning itself as the preferred partner for mirror manufacturers around the world.
