5-10mm Coloured Glass
5-10mm coloured glass is the size grading of choice by the majority of experienced concreters. It has been designed to be used as a seeded aggregate in a range of concrete based applications.
Clear glass is carefully tumbled to remove any sharp edges, then colour coated on all sides with a polyurethane coating highly resistant to U.V. light, abrasion and weather.

Available in 2.5kg & 10kg bags or 1 tonne bulk bags
THERE IS NO MINIMUM ORDER REQUIREMENT ON OUR 5-10MM GLASS
When using tumbled glass in concrete, it is imperative to use an aggregate that has been properly treated and coated to ensure a successful and long lasting installation.
Schneppa Glass™ has been carefully treated on all sides with a high quality patented coating to ensure that the glass pieces will not slip or pop out of the concrete. There is also no chance of leaching, which can occur when untreated or improperly prepared glass is used in exposed aggregate or polished concrete installations.
The colour pigments used are similar to those used in high performance paints, industrial and architectural finishes.
Application of the specified colour coating to the glass pieces provides a semi-transparent colour which allows a certain amount of light to pass through. Having the underside coloured allows the colour to show through even if, after many years, the top layer is abraded away.
Perfect for use in polished concrete floors, polished concrete bench tops and exposed aggregate concrete.
