Korin Introduces New Lead Free Scratch & Chip Resistant Crystal

"Fine Crystal Ion Strong” is a completely new lead-free crystal glass, which has been developed by Toyo-Sasaki Glass of Japan.

This new collection is transformed by Toyo Sasaki’s “ION STRONG” treatment which improves glass durability and scratch-resistance.

The glass is lead free and highly resistant against alkaline washing agents. Tests have shown that after 4500 wash cycles in a commercial dishwasher, there is no change in appearance: the glassware is still bright and brilliant. Use these glasses at home or in a commercial environment: either way, the reinforced glass will help resist chipping and scratching.

Fine Crystal Ion Strong is Toughened Crystal Glass – Yet Its Elegant Enough for the Finest Home and Restaurant Use
This IS Glassware with less breakage. Adding the “ION STRONG” process to “FINE CRYSTAL” improves the strength of glass by about 1.5 times.

This process also keeps the brightness and brilliance unique to conventional crystal glass, while greatly improving glass strength and durability. By reinforcing the entire surface of the glass chemically, chipping is also significantly reduced.
And, it’s Environmentally Friendly
No hazardous materials used (no lead or barium)
