Until recently, a mirror’s fragile silvering process limited designers’ practical and aesthetic choices. Safety glass, which is fundamental in certain applications, was not available as silvered mirrors and so only certain applications were possible.

The problem has been solved – thanks to Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome. The glass with highly reflective, extremely corrosion-resistant coating, can easily be toughened and bent ensuring a totally safe and adaptable application. Even very large mirrors or mirrors installed in point-fixed, frameless supporting systems are possible.

Compared to traditional mirrors that had to be glued to supporting boards or embedded in frames, the specially heat-treated Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome can be point-mounted, ultimately providing an extremely light and airy feel.

Toughened Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome provides the strength that enables hinges to be directly mounted. The result is a frameless, ultra-slim profile for full-glass and furniture doors that create striking and elegant reflections from both sides.

Being particularly resistant to corrosion, the Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome glass range is ideally suited to bathrooms and other areas of high humidity, which can often lead to unsightly black edge and spot faults.

The product range includes standard Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome, Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome Plus and Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome Spy. Each type offers different degrees of transparency to choose from, depending on the desired effect.

The Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome Plus glass is totally opaque, having practically zero light transmission (TL = 0.1%), and therefore suitable for applications where the objects behind the glass should not in any way be visible; Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome Spy is slightly transparent for spy mirror applications (one-way mirror).
