SGG MIRALITE REVOLUTION: environmentally friendly with exceptional clarity

Saint-Gobain Glass has launched SGG MIRALITE REVOLUTION, a mirror that has been developed using revolutionary technologies which lowers the environmental impact during manufacture, whilst keeping its exceptional durability and clarity.

The low ecological footprint achieved in the production of SGG MIRALITE REVOLUTION is a key benefit. 30% recycled glass is used in its production whilst a reduction of CO2 has been achieved through the re-treatment and re-use of water, recycling of metal residues, and cullet recycling. 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 significant and measurable environmental benefits may be used in commercial buildings to help achieve higher BREEAM standards, supported fully by an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) and Life Cycle Assessment.

Saint-Gobain Glass is one of the few manufacturers to have a comprehensive understanding of the impact it has on the environment, since it was the first glass manufacturer to have subjected its products to a full Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), in accordance with international standards. An LCA evaluates the environmental impact generated by a product at each stage of its life: from raw material extraction to end-of-life stage, via manufacturing.

SGG MIRALITE REVOLUTION is an ultra durable mirror designed for use by architects, interior designers, furniture manufacturers, and interior fitters to name a few, who will be impressed by its exceptional properties and appearance. Improved manufacturing processes have been achieved through a rigorous research and development programme resulting in this new generation of mirror.

SGG MIRALITE REVOLUTION. Offers discernibly improved quality compared to traditional mirrors whilst also significantly increasing durability through the improved anti-corrosion techniques used in its manufacture, making it the best performing and most robust mirror Saint-Gobain Glass have produced to date.
