How is SCHOTT NARIMA glass made?

NARIMA® is a dichroic color effects glass. “Dichroic” means that NARIMA® glass reflects some colors and allows others to pass through. For this reason, the glass shows one color when it is looked through, but creates a completely different color impression in the plan view, depending on the angle.

NARIMA® is a color effects glass that is produced in a dip-coating process. Very thin layers of high and low refraction metal oxide coatings create vivid colors which change depending upon viewing angle and daylight conditions. Based on the hardness, scratch resistance and high chemical resistance, NARIMA is noticeably more durable than conventionally coated glass – and care and cleaning of the glass can hardly be more simple and uncomplicated.

The optics of NARIMA® changes slightly during the tempering process. The reflection curve shifts due to tempering. Different process parameters (glass size) can cause fluctuation of the optics due to tempering.
