AGC releases Mirox 4Green+

Mirox 4Green+ is the latest version of AGC’s premium, lead-free mirror featuring a water-based protective coating and even lower emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). AGC says the fully opaque product remains the ideal solution for backlit applications.

Featuring a unique coating of water-based paint, Mirox 4Green+ uses 20% less paint compared to a standard mirror. The paint itself contains less than 10% organic solvents and the water-based paint’s VOC emissions are 80% lower than a standard mirror.

According to AGC, this makes Mirox 4Green+ a truly sustainable product, which, with near zero indoor emissions of volatile organic compounds, contributes to good indoor air quality and improved working conditions on the shop floor. Thanks to its water-based paint, less CO2 is released during the production process (about 150 g of CO2 /m2 prevented).

Mirox 4Green+ is a fully recyclable product. It has an even lower environmental impact than Mirox MNGE – which is Cradle to Cradle Certified Bronze – and will go through the same certification process.

Mirox 4Green+’s fully opaque paint keeps the diffusion of light within the sandblasted part of the glass, providing a superior finish and making it ideal for backlit mirror applications.

Both Mirox 4Green+ and Mirox MNGE are available in four colours: clear, clearvision, bronze and grey. They can also be ordered in a SAFE+ version for enhanced safety.
