Live life. Live safe. Live happy.
The greatest riches we have are the memories we make. Where we make those memories matters as much. Any living space should be a safe place.
A REVOLUTIONARY INNOVATION IN GLASS
Antibacterial and highly hygienic
Utilizes micro-etching technology that makes bacterial cumulation and growth difficult
Allows limitless possibilities in glass and is able to fit in any interior design
Easy to maintain
Easy-to-clean and faster cleaning time
Ongoing antibacterial effect regardless of temperature and humidity
Antibacterial properties permanently integrated into the glass surface
Complies with international safety regulations and is tested by specialized independent laboratories
Synergraphic engaged in an in-depth research study to develop a product which would help create healthier, safer and protected living spaces.
BioGlass+ possesses high-performance antibacterial properties, designed to give your living spaces an extra line of protection. The antibacterial properties of BioGlass+ make bacterial cumulation and growth difficult, thus preventing reproduction and resulting in the death of bacteria.
BioGlass+ surface is treated with specialized micro-etching technology, where the glass surface changes its shape from smooth and plane to rough and engraved.
Bacteria easily colonizing on flat surface
Bacteria attachment on etched surface is lesser but still does not prevent cumulation
Micro-etched roughness induces death of bacteria
Micro-etching technology provides you with a highly-hygienic glass surface that is consistently protected, regardless of temperature, humidity and climatic conditions.
BioGlass+ micro-etched technology is especially effective with bacteria such as Escherichia Coli, Klebsiella Pneumoniae and Staphylococcus Aureus, which are frequently present in any environment.
BioGlass+ surfaces are recommended for:
Healthcare Facilities and Medical Environments
To ensure utmost care for those who need it most, and to support quality medical work
▪ Nursing home
▪ Isolation room
To provide greater hygiene in places where food is present
To help protect the community from spread of viruses and diseases, to provide extra precautionary health measures for the general public
▪ Shopping centre
To provide an extra line of defense for your homes and your household
BioGlass+ antibacterial technology can be integrated into most Synergraphic finishes, such as LamiArt, Printed Glass and more.
▪ Wall coverings
▪ Bathroom walls
▪ Kitchen backsplashes
▪ Lift interiors
▪ Lift lobbies
▪ Shower screens
▪ Bar counters
▪ Retail display
▪ 2250 mm x 3210 mm
▪ Larger custom sizes possible
Clear / Low Iron
4 / 5 / 6 / 8 / 10 / 12 mm
Tempered or toughened glass conforming to
BS EN 12150, BS EN 12150-1:2015, ANSI Z97.1-2015 and CPSC 16 CFR 1201 standards
HOLES AND NOTCHES
▪ Holes in tempered glass must be drilled before heat processing. Size of hole should be greater than or equal to the glass thickness and must be located with a minimum distance of 30mm from any edge.
▪ For wall cladding applications, back of glass will have a paint backing for mounting purposes.
▪ Glass configuration is to be advised depending on application and size of panel required.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What makes this glass anti-bacterial?
The surface of the glass is treated with specialized micro-etching technology, where the glass surface changes its shape from smooth and plane to rough and engraved – making it difficult for the bacteria to cumulate and grow. This antibacterial property of BioGlass+ is integrated at the point of manufacture and offers a long-term solution for prevention of bacterial growth.
What is micro-etching antibacterial technology?
Micro-etching antibacterial technology is a specific process used on the glass surface to change its shape from smooth and plane to rough and engraved.
Is the protection technology used safe?
Yes, the glass remains a neutral, sterile material that does not contain any toxin or harmful chemical residue.
How is this glass different from other types of glass?
A standard flat glass surface easily allows bacteria to accumulate and spread. Our micro-etched surface treatments make the cumulation and growth of bacteria not feasible, resulting in impossibility of reproduction and, therefore, death of bacteria.
How long will the anti-bacterial properties last?
BioGlass+ offers antimicrobial protection constantly, 24 hours a day, with and without sunlight, with a lifetime guarantee. The antibacterial property of BioGlass+ is not a treatment applied to finished products like waxes or resins but is permanently integrated into the glass surface during the manufacturing process.
Does this glass need to be cleaned?
Yes. The antimicrobial protection in BioGlass+ is not a substitute for a proper cleaning routine. BioGlass+ provides an added level of hygiene protection that makes bacterial cumulation and growth difficult.
How do we clean this glass?
Normal cleaning will do, same with any glass surface. Abrasive cleaners, powder based cleaners, scouring pads or harsh materials should not be used to clean glass products. Regardless of the types of cleaning agent used, the entire surface should always be cleaned and dried.
Do we follow necessary specific precautions when installing this product?
No, BioGlass is installed in the same manner as standard glass.
