COLOURED GLASS AGGREGATES:
Coloured glass aggregates provide a range of colours that are not possible using mined aggregates.
The glass aggregates are completely coated on all sides , the glass possesses a clear matrix , so even if the top coating is worn away , the underlying colour on all of the facets of the glass reflect through the clear matrix , much like a prism .
Added to this, the glass filters out the U/V to the underlying sides thus adding to the longevity of colour retention.
Coloured glass aggregates have an A rating environmentally as the glass used is 100% recycled, added to a binder that is environmentally friendly water based.
The glass aggregate is developed from recycled glass using a crushing system combined with a tumbling process in order to remove any sharp edges and shape the glass. The use of this product prevents this material from going into landfill and just as importantly reduces aggregates being mined out of the ground.
