What is Hammerglass®?

Hammerglass® is the new generation of high performance glass in nano surface-treated polycarbonate. A durable and wear-resistant polycarbonate sheet, 300 times stronger than glass and virtually unbreakable. Hammerglass screens are coated with a thin film of silicon oxide, which protects against scratches and wear and tear. Nanotechnological surface treatment renders Hammerglass resistant to most chemicals, which makes it easy to remove graffiti from the surface - and helps to prevent pollutants from exhaust fumes, oil and asphalt from adhering to Hammerglass as easily as to ordinary glass. The surface treatment also provides 99.96% UV protection, which means the material will not cloud, discolour or undergo any other change in optical quality over time. Estimated service life is more than 40 years. Hammerglass does not contribute to the spreading of flames in the event of fire. With its array of positive features, and half the weight of conventional glass, Hammerglass is an excellent choice both for new installation and glass replacement in a modern infrastructure.
