Superior Technology and Design Provides Commercial Architects with Multiple Options for Use
Pulp Studio, the leading designers and manufacturers of technically superior decorative glass for commercial markets has added to its rich catalog of architectural glass with the introduction of DermaGlass™, a highly durable, light-weight glass strong enough for exteriors and facades, as well as interiors.
DermaGlass™ is only 1.3mm in thickness, yet it is as durable and damage resistant as more traditional thicker heat-treated glass. Using an ion-exchange process, DermaGlass™ is highly resilient and extremely versatile. Due to its thin profile it can be used by designers to bend the glass around columns or into decorative shapes.
“We have been perfecting DermaGlass™ for more than two years; we knew there was a void in the decorative and technical architectural glass market for something that provides both exceptional strength and durability as well as the ability to be ‘designed’, and DermaGlass™ is that product,” said Bernard Lax, founder and CEO of Pulp Studio. “The fact that DermaGlass™ weighs so much less than traditional glass products makes it perfect for indoor applications like elevator cab panels that need both high strength and minimal weight. We are excited about continuing to find creative uses for this new product family.”

DermaGlass™ panels fit together seamlessly, providing architects, developers and builders with the perfect solution when architectural glass is needed.
