Curava Recycled Glass Is Resin Based
While many other recycled-glass surfacing uses cement as a binder, Curava Recycled Glass Surface has a resin binder developed for strength, hygiene and stain resistance without the need for sealer or wax, reports the manufacturer. The amount of recycled glass used in making Curava is equivalent to 25 glass bottles per sq. ft., which equals 1,250 recycled bottles in the average kitchen. All of the glass in this surfacing is recycled, and the pieces are of varying sizes. It is sourced from landfills and other post-consumer and post-industrial waste. It can be used in a variety of indoor applications, including countertops, vanity tops, tabletops and shower surrounds. It is not yet recommended for outdoor use. Curava has been certified as Food Safe by NSF International and the company is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
