What makes Dichroic Laminates so special?

The Dichroic Optical Core within each lamination is unique in its ability to filter and reflect specific wavelengths of light. This results in a product that will produce dramatic color shifts as the viewing angle changes -- literally changing color before your very eyes. The same optical effects you see in natural opals, butterfly wings, and soap bubbles. There is no more powerful architectural tool available to high end designers.

The science and technology behind these laminations is equally impressive. The Burl textures line, for example, is comprised of over nine separate polymer layers laminated in three separate proprietary lamination steps -- a process developed over the past seventeen years by its inventor, John Blazy. John was formerly an award winning furniture designer and currently holds two patents in polymer science for high solids coating chemistry.

 

 

HOW DICHROLAM BURL TEXTURES ARE MADE

Each color in the Burl line requires a completely different technique to pattern in order to bring out the most aesthetic pattern and color veining. Red Burl, for example, was made with black veining for about four years before John figured out how to bring out the blue violet streaking between the rich copper red coral heads. The Titanium Burl is even more difficult to achieve the rich magentas blues and golds.

Using several different polymer systems these burls can be laminated in glass or laserable composites of acrylic, PET and other proprietary resins for rigid and formable sheets. Panels in glass and acrylic as large as four feet by ten feet long can be made, but most panels are done in 24 x 48 and usually custom sized for the specific job at hand based on cut list.
