A variety of edge
treatments are also available, including beveling and mitering. Etching
and sandblasting treatments are also available.
Special coatings and surface treatments are also available.
ROBAX IR is coated with an infra-red rejecting surface that bounces heat back into the fireplace. Depending on how its used, ROBAX IR:
Helps retain heat in the firebox
Can improve combustion efficiency
Can lower EPA emissions
Can raise the temperature of the glass to keep it cleaner
Can reduce the radiant heat transfer to keep living room more comfortable
ROBAX is also available with an anti-reflective (AR) coating. ROBAX AR reduces the glare from room lights that can obscure the view of the flames.
ROBAX Mirror is available. It is used like a one-way mirror: when the fireplace is on, you can see through it to watch the flames, and when the fireplace is off, it looks more like a mirror to provide a pleasing look and obscure fireplace hardware.
ROBAX Magic is also available in semi opaque colours, like black, white, grey and cream. These can be used as attractive high temperature materials in the firebox, stove or BBQ. They have been used as covers for BBQ side burners.
New coatings, colours and applications are always emerging. We're happy to present all the options to your design and engineering teams at your convenience. Call us for the latest advances.
