Ipachrome design is a chrome-containing multi-layer system for decorative use. The float glass can be partially or wholly fitted with a chrome coating. Simple motifs as well as complex photorealistic designs can be masked onto the glass surface. The result is a mirrored pane that is rich in detail and deep in contrast. Ipachrome design has a light reflectance of over 50%. The glass is as highly reflecting as a conventional silver mirror, but substantially more robust. Ipachrome design is suitable for some additional functional coatings, such as coatings for thermal insulation and solar control. The glass can be thermally toughened and processed into laminated safety glass, or it can also be further processed into insulation glass. The system is suitable for interior or exterior applications, as façade cladding, shop interior or trade fair constructions.
