Bring beautiful sunny colour to a project and make it greener at the same time with the Yellow Recycled Glass Chippings. Used to add interest to mosaics, terrazzo floors, floral arrangements, centrepieces and arts and crafts, the glass is one of our brightest materials. The material is also frequently used to bring beauty to kerb sets, memorial gardens and other memorial tributes in cemeteries.
The Yellow Recycled Glass Chippings are green in the sense that they are made from environmentally friendly materials. Producing this glass product helps to keep the glass from ending up in landfills, as it is made entirely from post-consumer recycled jars and bottles. This unwanted glass waste is heated to a very high temperature to melt it down and create the base for the chippings.
Once the recycled glass is fully liquefied, we add the necessary pigments to the mixture to make the Yellow Recycled Glass Chippings precisely the right shade. The dyes needed to produce this lemon yellow glass are more expensive than the ones necessary for making other colours like green or cobalt, so the price of the chippings is a bit higher than that of most of our other glass chipping products.
After the permanent colour is added to the glass, the liquid is allowed to cool off and set. The solid glass is then crushed into pieces roughly 20 millimetres in size. Finally, the pieces are buffed to eliminate sharp edges, and our Yellow Recycled Glass Chippings are ready for purchase.
The Yellow Recycled Glass Chippings are a part of our Memorial Products collection, which is sold through authorised dealers located throughout Ireland.
