SCHOTT PYRAN® Platinum

THE CLEAREST GLASS CERAMIC IN THE WORLD

PYRAN® Platinum is the world’s first and only floated glass-ceramic for fire-resistant glazing. As a UL-certified glass-ceramic PYRAN® Platinum meets the highest American standards for fire-resistance. The UL norm requires that the glass should withstand thermal shock immediately following exposure to extremely high temperatures. In the test, the hot glass is blasted with cold water at very high pressure from a fire hose. PYRAN® Platinum offers fire protection up to 90 min in windows and 180 min in door systems.

It is clear and colorless, closely resembling normal architectural window glass, without the distracting orange/amber tint associated with all competitive glass-ceramics. This unique attribute is a result of carefully designed decolorization agents added to the glass melt. The composition of PYRAN® Platinum is stable and is not sensitive to exposure to UV light rays or heat. The glass-ceramic is also available as filmed (PYRAN® Platinum F) and laminated (PYRAN® Platinum L) to meet impact requirements.

UNIQUE SELLING POINTS

REMAINS TRANSPARENT IN FIRE CONDITIONS

This is extremely beneficial in critical fire-safety applications like doors, windows and partitions to facilitate human rescue from fire to non-fire side and also helps fire- rescue authorities judge the intensity of fire and plan rescue operations.

UP TO 180 MINUTE FIRE-PROTECTION

PYRAN® Platinum is tested for 180 minutes integrity, stability and protection against flames, hot gases and smoke as per BS476 Part 22.

AS CLEAR AS CONVENTIONAL GLASS

PYRAN® Platinum glass-ceramic is as clear as regular soda-lime silicate glass, without the haze or amber tint associated with all other glass-ceramics available in the market.

ABILITY TO WITHSTAND HOSE STREAM TEST

PYRAN® Platinum glass-ceramic passes the hose stream test as per UL classification thanks to its superior strength and near-zero thermal expansion.

 

UNLIMITED LIFE AND FIRE-PERFORMANCE WARRANTY

With no interlayers or coating, PYRAN® Platinum gets its fire-resistance from the unique borosilicate composition and lasts a lifetime. It never discolours or loses appearance over time and is unaffected by high ambient temperatures or UV rays, making it ideal for use in continuous high-temperature applications like furnace viewing and fireplaces.

MADE IN GERMANY. CUSTOMIZED IN INDIA.

PYRAN® Platinum is manufactured in Germany and shipped in customizable form to India for local processing. Giving you the best of both worlds: unbeatable quality with unbelievable service levels.

THE WORLD’S ONLY C2C CERTIFIED FR-GLASS CERAMIC

PYRAN® Platinum glass-ceramic achieves C2C Certification at the Silver level, which means all chemicals are identified down to 100 ppm level (0.01%) with no toxic heavy metals or related chemicals. What’s more, you can gain valuable LEED points if your project qualifies for Green Building Certification.

RESISTANCE TO CHEMICALS

Since PYRAN® Platinum is without any coating or interlayers, the resistance to chemicals like acids, alkalis and chlorine is extremely high. This is extremely critical in places with high chemical content in air like oil refineries, chemical factories and oil rigs.

REUSABILITY

Under very minor fires that are extinguished within a few minutes, PYRAN® Platinum can potentially be reused; however, the glazing components might require change.

CAN BE LAMINATED FOR IMPACT RESISTANCE

PYRAN® Platinum glass-ceramic can be filmed (PYRAN® Platinum F) or laminated (PYRAN® Platinum L) for enhanced safety and impact resistance.
