Duralex, the Unbreakable Icon
From Versailles to your table
Saint Gobain (The manufacture of materials for Versailles Hall of Mirrors and Louvre Pyramid, nothing less!) a pioneer in the tempered glass technology, registered the Duralex brand to adapt the process to the tableware production. Since we are talking history here, a little Latin reference: Duralex brand name is taken from the motto, "Dura Lex Sed Lex" (The law is tough, but it is the law). Its reputation is based on the very quality of its products: resistance to extreme temperatures and shocks. The original publicity for the glasses in the Fifties claimed that they could be "used as hammers"!
Fully recyclable glass
Duralex products are sand-based soda-lime, sodium carbonate and calcium carbonate glass. All the components are sourced as close as possible to the processing plant, 99% in France, to reduce carbon footprint. So Duralex glass, unlike boron-based culinary or pharmaceutical glass, is fully recyclable. We need your help to recycle Duralex glass.
