Cast resin with encapsulated interlayers between glass lites
3form Poured Glass is produced by encapsulating organic materials and fabrics with a poured cast resin. This technique enables the possibilities of conveying depth without sacrificing clarity or the natural beauty of the interlayer materials. Poured Glass is based on a proprietary liquid lamination technology that sets itself apart from conventional methods in two ways: first, the lamination process allows even distribution of objects throughout the glass; and second, it makes possible clean, exposed edges that allow for a frameless application. The result is a seamless fusion of glass, resin and interlayers into visually dramatic panels whose interlayers are delicately and dimensionally preserved.
