As Stylish as Metal, as Carefree as Glass: SCHOTT MetalLook Brings Trendy Surfaces into the Home

New surface combines the material advantages of glass with the precious look of stainless steel

The international technology group SCHOTT now offers MetalLook, a product that combines the virtues of glass with the precious look of metal. It is ideal for trendy appliance surfaces in kitchens and homes because it can be easily cleaned. Furthermore, SCHOTT MetalLook allows for completely new design options. This product is particularly well-suited for use in the control panels of ovens, refrigerators, and other appliances where thin logos, lines, or symbols in a stainless steel effect should be applied on the glass surface.

The use of stainless steel is popular in residential home decor. The naturally shimmering surface gives any room order and structure, yet classic stainless steel surfaces are extremely sensitive. Unsightly fingerprints are immediately visible and even the slightest mishap can result in surface scratches.

This is where the new SCHOTT MetalLook material, a modern and smooth glass surface with a stainless steel appearance, excels. 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 normal stainless steel surfaces.

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, and more. Manufacturers will also appreciate that the material requires less effort during the assembly process and thus lowers the manufacturing cost.

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