Pilkington Mirai™ - See the world differently
Mirai, meaning 'future' in Japanese, was developed to mark the start of the next generation of low carbon glass products to help meet stricter sustainability requirements in the built environment.
Our new low carbon glass offers a market leading 50% less CO2e* vs our standard glass product achieved by using a combination of alternative fuel, high recycled glass content and green electricity sources.
Pilkington Mirai™ offers identical quality, performance and aesthetics as Pilkington Optifloat™ Clear, but with only half the impact on the environment.
Glass is an endlessly recyclable material
With the building sector being responsible for more than one third of the EU’s carbon emissions and with buildings accounting for over 40% of the energy consumed, we have a significant opportunity to makechange™ in our industry and support the built environment by developing low carbon products such as Pilkington Mirai™ as part of the wider solution.
Pilkington Mirai™ can be offered as a low carbon base substrate or in combination with our high performance low-e and solar control coating ranges such as Pilkington Optitherm™, Pilkington Suncool™ including laminated and acoustic variants and has been designed for both commercial and residential segments.
Available in 4, 6 and 8 mm in standard stock sizes. For other thicknesses please contact your Sales Representative.
