In the traditional production of crystal glass, lead is added to the glass mass, which adds the classic and desired clarity of the glass.
The problem with lead is that it contaminates the groundwater and the soil. Ingestion of large amounts of lead, through food and drinking water, has documented harmful effects on the body.
That's why Frederik Bagger works with 100% lead-free glass mass, Crystalline.
Crystalline is not just a glass mass without harmful additives that maintains the iconic beautiful clarity but enjoys other advantages such as:
- Dishwasher safe
- Durable and flexible raw material
- Withstands temperatures down to -25°C up to 180°C.
- Resistant to glass plague/discoloration
