One of the most interesting applications of glass is kitchen countertops which are traditionally made of other materials, and customers may choose the colour they like. In addition, glass countertop can be made of different types of glass. We recommend tempered safety glass, glass resistant to scratches, so-called antiscratch glass, or glass highly tolerant to scratches which shows only minor damages, so-called matelux ipawhite.
Countertops are usually made of 12mm tempered glass. Tempering hardens the glass making it resistant and safe to use. Thanks to its “closed surface” it is particularly smooth and hygienic. No other material can replace it, since agents that damage other materials cannot damage glass (liquids, temperature, etc.).
