restauro® UV protection glass / uv resistant glass
The worldwide unique window glass protecting against ultraviolet radiation with a filter effect directly integrated into the glass structure. Without any coating or externaly applied foils it protects precious objects and room setups reliably in the spectral range until 380nm.
Historically precious objects and room setups exposed to daylight get inevitably affected by the damaging impact of ultraviolet radiation. Irreversible material transformations occur as a result. UV-rays fade sensitive colour pigments and destroy the structure of binders and lacquer layers. The entry of radiation into rooms occur particularly through window openings. Ordinary glass can not provide any protection. The mouthblown special glass restauro®UV protects however effectively against UV-radiation until 380nm. As the worldwide unique UV-protective window glass the filter effect is induced by the glass components itself and therefore it manages without any externally applied or laminated UV-protection foils or coatings. In this way it is possible to install restauro®UV in narrow rabbets of historical windows as a single glass panel with a thickness of 2-3 mm. In common with every other glass from Lamberts restauro®UV can also be processed to stained glass. The protection-glass restauro®UV as an all-anorganic material is enduring and ensures an interminable protection. With it’s typical slight distortions this glass fits visually perfect in the structure of historical buildings and redounds at the same time in an aesthetical way effectively to the preservation and preventive conservation of precious artistic and cultural assets.
