EMALIT® EVOLUTION: Lead-free toughened enamelled coloured glass


EMALIT EVOLUTION is an opaque coloured glass, produced by uniformly enamelling one side of the glass. It is available in eleven standard colours.

These next-generation enamels contain no dangerous heavy metals* (in particular: lead, cadmium, mercury or chromium VI). The enamel is fired at a very high temperature, in order to fuse permanently with the glass surface, giving the product exceptional durability. In addition to the standard colour range, Glassolutions can also supply bespoke colours to match specific aesthetic requirements.

* < 1000 ppm in the content of the paint

Short lead times
Through significant investment in UK production facilities, Glassolutions can supply EMALIT EVOLUTION in as little as 5 days for single glazing or 10 days for double glazed units.

Durable and safe
EMALIT EVOLUTION is a toughened safety glass manufactured in accordance with standard BS EN 12150. For certain applications it can be heat-strengthened in accordance with standard BS EN 1863.

Ideal for external façade cladding
EMALIT EVOLUTION is used primarily for external façades in insulated spandrels or cladding panels in non-vision areas for an aesthetically clean appearance. Uniform facades or contrasting features can be created, with the added reflective quality of glass.

Insulated Spandrel Panels
Insulation can be added to both single and double-glazed spandrel panels to improve thermal performance.

Double-glazed units
EMALIT EVOLUTION can be incorporated in double-glazed units for facade applications – with the enamel coating on face 4. This type of double glazing must be designed specifically for this particular application (depth of seal, loading, width of cavity etc.).

Size range
Available in standard sizes from 200mm x 200mm to 1600mm x 3000mm – with larger sizes available on request – EMALIT® EVOLUTION is easy to order and install.
