Glass sheet

The glass sheet produced by the Vetreria la Piastra is compatible with the Venetian glass (Murano) such as Millefiori and Bacchette.
This qualitatively advanced product is suitable for the production of sliding glass doors, for the realization of artistic glazed frames, "Tiffany"-like processing, etc. or for glass melting for the production of gifts and fancy goods, lighting systems, furnishing (tiles), ceramics, etc.

The colorations, available in a wide ever evolving range, takes place through the insertion of typical substances that in the correct dosage specific of the artistic glass, selectively absorbs the light and determines the desired chromatic effects.

Compatibility with the Venetian glass

The sheet produced by the Vetreria la Piastra is a rolled flat glass realized with expansion coefficient of 104 (resulting from chemical researches), compatible with the Venetian glass such as Bacchette and Millefiori.
The compatibility guarantees that, during the melting procedure, two glasses with the same expansion coefficient, do not present any tensions that might determine a break. Fundamental characteristic of the production, the compatibility is daily tested by means of suitable equipment.

The product presents an optimal level of annealing, both during the manipulation and packing phase, and during the test process carried out inside the company by means of polarized light.

Peculiarity of this article is the nearly smooth surface that allows an easy cut and an easy melting although it maintains the typical texture of the cathedral.

The sheets in various range colours are compatible with each other and, having expansion coefficient of 104, are also compatible with the Venetian glass such as Millefiori and Bacchette. The compatibility is daily tested in the company by means of suitable equipment.

An emphasized texture of the sheet calls to our mind the suggestions of the ancient glass doors. The series LAGUNA is in fact perfect for binding and Tiffany-type works. It is particularly suitable for restoration works.

However, the sheets of this series can also be used for glass melting works as they possess the same compatibility characteristics of the GALILEO series.

A blaze of colour on the silk allows for the creation of semi-transparency effects that very well adapt to the creation of evocative particulars in the artistic glass doors and for the development of marble-like effects in the glass-melting works for the realization of gifts and fancy goods for home decoration and jeweller's art.



Riflessi

Riflessi

The careful search for new effects with which the glass allows to play, has brought the Vetreria La Piastra to produce the new series RIFLESSI. The result is a series in which the granolithic in the various colours and the golden effects, allow the realization of unique pieces for exclusive productions both in melting glass for gifts and fancy goods and for the realization of artistic glass doors.
