In the manufacture of glass worktops, hardened glass is used. As a result, the surface remains intact and the fracture risk of the material is reduced. During processing, two or more superimposed flat glass panes are joined by one or more highly elastic films (PVB films). In the case of overloading by external action, the glass breaks, but the fragments adhere to the uninjured PVB layer. This reduces the risk of injury and the glazing maintains a residual stability ... The glass can be delivered shiny, pickled or frosted. In addition, digital imprinting of a favorite subject or picture or photo is possible.
