♦ THE PLATINUM GLASS PROCESS :
Simultaneously, production methods and technical knowhow have a direct influence on the quality of the final product.
After undergoing 1500 dishwasher cycles, Spiegelau stemware was certified as “extremely dishwasher safe” by an independent laboratory. They found no scratching, markings, loss of brilliance, foggy shadows, change in color or brilliance or build up of water chemicals and residue.
Spiegelau’s remarkable durability can be attributed in large part to the Platinum Glass process. As the glass goes from its powder to its liquid stage, liquid glass is passed through platinum-lined tubes to eliminate any impurities and remove all imperfections and inconsistencies that might otherwise exist. (Platinum prevents leaching that may occur from other equipment linings.) While more expensive, this innovative use of technology proves Spiegelau’s commitment to quality.
The result is a “high performance” wine glass with a remarkable marriage of elegance, functionality and durability.
From creating fine glass mirrors for the old Royal courts of Europe to manufacturing sturdy yet fine glassware for the modern-day hospitality trade, Spiegelau has a history of high-performance.
For five centuries we have laboured to combine hand craftsmanship with the latest glass-making techniques.
♦ QUALITY MADE IN GERMANY :
To ensure an enduring quality standard, Spiegelau has a strong commitment to its production sites in Germany.
Modern technology and optimized machine made production enable Spiegelau to offer high quality products at affordable prices. We put a lot of human effort and passion into delivering the perfect product!
♦ GLASS COMPOSITION :
The degree to which a glass can offer all of these benefits depends to a great extent on the type of glass used and the characteristics of the ingredients.
Standard Glass consist of sand, lime (an alkaline earth oxide), Sodium or Potassium oxides. Spiegelau Crystal glass has the same ingredients plus a certain percentage of metaloxide. These ingredients will be melted at approx. 1500°C and in later steps formed to the desired product.
Spiegelau glasses are all made of lead free Crystal glass. The highest quality of the Crystal ingredients make the Spiegelau products more durable, dishwasher safe, break resistant and also more brilliant than other glasses made with cheaper glass compositions.
