Dichroic Laminated Glass

Dichroic Laminated Glass is the result of the ingenuity of Goldray's research and development team and 3M's premium grade polymeric film. Partnering with 3M's innovative team, we were able to create a product that exhibits brilliant color shifts through transmitted and reflected light. The result is a film laminated between two or more lites of glass, then viewed at various angles producing a striking color shift.

Available in cool and warm tones, Dichroic Laminated Glass can be integrated into any design concept as an accent or focal piece. The dazzling dichroic colors can be enhanced with other design processes such as using textured lites, or muting the effect with an acid-etched glass. Goldray's selections of Dichroic Laminated Glass are suitable for both interior and exterior applications.

Features & Benefits

  • The product creates brilliant color shifts and the effect of color movement within a single lite of glass. The color and movement effects can be enhanced by using textured glass as one or more of the glass lites, or muted by using acid-etched glass.
  • Goldray's Dichroic Laminated Glass is available in both translucent and opaque options. Goldray uses a 3M dichroic film, which is non-metallic, non-conductive, non-corrosive and non-oxidizing, suitable for both interior and exterior applications.
