Style and substance

The appeal of SCHOTT NARIMA® not only lies in its striking range of colors, but in its high quality materials. The glass is dip-coated rather than foil-based, making it UV-stable, harder and much less vulnerable to humidity, while the coating is highly scratch resistant, as well as thermally and chemically resistant.

We are certified

SCHOTT NARIMA® on float glass and NARIMA® laminated safety glass for glazing applications inside and outside buildings conform to the following standards: DIN EN 1096-2 and DIN EN ISO 12543-2, following the provision of Directives 89 / 106 / EWG.
