GLASAL®-T’s high performance properties are the result of a unique manufacturing process which combines a permanent inorganic, semi- matt finish with a rigid reinforced cement base sheet. GLASAL®-T is manufactured on a Hatschek machine, double pressed and autoclaved (100% asbestos free), front face is finished with a double layer of acrylic coating with mineral pigments and a PU clear coat (UV hardened), designed originally for exterior cladding applications. A broad range of natural and designer tones, plus a palette of light colours specifically developed for large surface areas, are available. One of many GLASAL®-T applications that has found particular appeal with designers over many years is as a decorative lining. It provides satisfactory technical solutions to many problems, especially those encountered in road tunnels, underground railway stations, subways and the like. All applications, in their own specific and various ways, demand optimum performance from cladding systems.

GLASAL®-T - Colour range

Color range: GLASAL®-T has a smooth semi gloss surface. See below colour chart for an overview of the range of standard colours. It is technically impossible, however, that this chart represents the colours realistically. Therefore the final choice of the colour has to be made with samples. Other colours are available upon request for minimum orders.

Storage

The sheets are packaged on pallets. They are to be transported under a tarpaulin. The sheets must be horizontally stacked on a flat surface. The sheets must always be sufficient supported so that they do not sag. The sheets must be stacked in a dry ventilated space. If the sheets are stored outside, they must always be protected against rain by a tarpaulin or plastic cover. If the sheets do become wet in the packing, all packaging must be removed and the sheets must be placed in a way that they can dry out thoroughly. It is recommended to allow the sheets to acclimatise in the space where they are to be used. A sheet must always be lifted from a stack by two persons and then be carried vertically. Ensure that foil is always placed between stacked sheets to avoid paint damage.
