Cristallium is not only a splendidly aesthetic material, but it also offers superior strength.
The use of Cristallium offers truly unique design possibilities and myriad visual effects. It is appreciated for its highly sophisticated, satin, mirror-like finish.
The major advantage is that all kinds of objects can be embedded within the resin. The beauty of a mechanical watchmaking part, say, or a precious stone, may be open to view for all eternity. The only limit is the imagination.
It is not only popular with certain contemporary furniture designers, also jewellery workers use it to enhance the beauty of their creations, and even eyewear manufacturers prize it highly for making beautifully elegant frames.
In the cutler’s trade, Cristallium is especially appreciated for its superior strength, reliability and unique resistance properties. In fact, Cristallium® is perfectly UV-proof and table knives made of this substance are safely dishwasher-proof.
