Saint-Gobain: launch of environmentally-friendly mirrored glass

SGG Miralite Revolution is the new product from Saint-Gobain Glass with, the company says, characteristics and production methods that lower the environmental impact during manufacture, whilst keeping durability and clarity.

Saint-Gobain Glass has launched SGG Miralite Revolution, a mirror that has been developed using technologies, says its manufacturer, which lower the environmental impact during manufacture, whilst keeping durability and clarity.
The production of SGG Miralite Revolution uses 30% recycled glass, whilst a reduction of CO2 has been achieved through the re-treatment and re-use of water, recycling of metal residues, and cullet recycling.
According to the company, no lead, copper or any toxic substances are used in the production of the mirror, whilst ultra low VOC emissions maintain inside air quality making SGG Miralite Revolution non-harmful to health.
These measurable environmental benefits can be used in commercial buildings to contribute in achieving higher BREEAM standards, supported fully by an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) and Life Cycle Assessment.
