Saint-Gobain offers substitute for marble or granite

October 15, 2013

The Indian subsidiary of the French multinational, Saint Gobain, has started pitching some of its glass products as a substitute for marble or granite, and not just other types of glass. For instance, at the Tril Infopark’s IT special economic zone in Chennai, Saint-Gobain has sold a new advanced lacquered glass as a replacement for granite or marble.

The lacquered glass, which is easy to install, easy to clean and has a glossy finish, comes in 16 different colours. The company is not comparing this glass with other types of glass, but with marble. Just to get an idea of the price: a 6-mm thick clear glass, not tempered, costs Rs. 40 to 50 per sq ft; lacquered glass with a five- or 10-year warranty, with anti-fade qualities and that is UV resistant, will cost seven to eight times more.
