Stone Source, a distributor of natural stone, porcelain-, ceramic- and glass tiles, engineered stone and FSC Certified reclaimed wood and old growth wood, has announced the collaboration with Bendheim for the exclusive supply of eco-friendly architectural glass products. The Bendheim/Stone Source collaboration brings Color Coated EcoGlass, a distinctive collection of large-format, back-painted, eco-friendly architectural glass products to architects and designers, suitable as wall cladding for interior feature walls, hotel lobbies, elevator interiors, backsplashes, table tops and counter tops, including kitchen counter tops, and furniture inserts. Color Coated EcoGlass products are available in sheet sizes up to 60 x 120. These large sheets contribute to a seamless aesthetic as grout lines are virtually eliminated. In addition, projects designed with larger pieces require less installation time and result in lower cost. Smaller tiles (as small as 2×2) and cut to size/waterjet fabrication is also available. Each of the products in the Color Coated EcoGlass Collection is comprised of 25-40% post-consumer recycled glass, as well as a minimum of 20% post-industrial recycled glass. In addition, Bendheim“s proprietary colour-coating process employs isocyanate-free pigments to produce VOC-free glass for improved indoor air quality. The glass in safety-tempered form is produced in Bendheim“s energy-efficient, sulphur dioxide-free tempering furnace. This collaboration combines Bendheim“s ability to develop unique glass products with Stone Source“s discerning knowledge of the architectural materials market, says Donald Jayson, senior vice president of Bendheim.
