Mainz, October 7, 2013, 2013 – Glass that looks like stainless steel: with MetalLook, the international technology group SCHOTT now offers a product that combines the virtues of glass with the precious look of metal. It is simply ideal for trendy surfaces in kitchens and homes, because it can be cleaned very easily. Furthermore, SCHOTT MetalLook allows for completely new design approaches. Because thin logos, lines or symbols can be applied to the stainless steel surface, this product is particularly well-suited for use in the control elements of ovens, refrigerators and other appliances.

Stainless steel decor has been popular in modern homes for some time now. The naturally shimmering surfaces give any room order and structure, nevertheless classic stainless steel surfaces are extremely sensitive. Whenever they are touched, this leaves behind fingerprints that can be seen immediately. And if anyone treats these surfaces a bit too roughly, this will leave behind scratches in the surface.

This is where the new SCHOTT MetalLook material, a modern and smooth glass surface with a stainless steel appearance, makes the most of its advantages. This glass material is much easier to clean because there are no joints between the metal and glass as in normal stainless steel oven doors. Fingerprints are also less visible on SCHOTT MetalLook than on a normal stainless steel surface.

SCHOTT MetalLook comes in different metallic color shades and brushed effects for a broad range of applications, such as oven doors, extractor hoods, refrigerators, splash backs for kitchens, etc. Manufacturers will also appreciate that the material requires less effort during the assembly process and thus lowers the manufacturing costs.

SCHOTT MetalLook is based on a patent-protected technology that was developed by SCHOTT and combines various processing steps to provide this special stainless steel appearance behind glass.
