Decorative Glass Aggregates
Specialty Glass products are made from recycled bottles, plate glass, and stained glass. This is done with custom made equipment that they have spent the past several years developing. Glass recycling process produces cleaned and dried glass chips that are mostly rounded or cubic in shape. Chips are sorted into the five standard terrazzo sizes, plus fines for background color and texture. Also offers a fine white sand, made from plate glass, that is excellent as a substitute for silica sand.
Stained glass chips are made from glass that is 1/8″ thick, therefore sizes larger than #1 tend to be somewhat flat.
Plate glass is somewhat flat in sizes larger than #1. Thick plate glass is more expensive, but is generally rounded in sizes up to #3 or #4.
Most colors are in stock and available for immediate shipping. Some non-stock colors may require a large minimum order and up to 30 days lead-time.
Expect a very small amount of color contamination in stained glass. In plate glass expect some color contamination from tinted plate glass, usually gray. In pre-consumer bottle glass their is almost no contamination, because the bottles are new bottles with no labels or caps. Post consumer bottles have considerable color and label contamination.

Decorative Quartz Aggregates
The Mineral: Pure silica sand is the basic mineral in Perma Color Surface Aggregates. Silica is an extremely hard abrasion-resistent, chemically inert mineral. Flooring surfaces produced using pure, high-density silica consistently show greater resistance to wear than surfaces filled with minerals of lesser integrity.
Colors, Sizes and Blends: Fifteen colors are available in three different textures. In addition to these standard colors, Estes’ offers custom colors and blends, computer matched to customer specifications. Estes’ also has two additional sizes in Perma Color Surface Aggregates called Super Trowel Rite and Ultra Trowel Rite.
Application: Perma Color Surface Aggregates are ideally suited to any established method of application; troweling, broadcast or pourable self-leveling formulations. Traditionally rounded grain sands were thought to be best suited for broadcast application, experienced applicators find no difficulty troweling this type of aggregate. Similarly, Trowel Rite is not limited to only the trowel method of application.
Density and Coverage: The density of Perma Color Surface Aggregates averages about 90 lbs. per cubic foot. Of course, coverage varies depending upon the thickness of the anticipated surface.
