Light reflecting concrete

Light-reflecting concrete combines the positive properties of concrete (fire safety, strength, construction method) with the property of retroreflection. Retroreflective surfaces return the incoming light (sun rays and artificial light) in exactly the direction from which it came.

The concrete surface is activated by light depending on the position of the surface, the light source and the recipient. It’s possible to see the reflective effect at a specific moment in time. The concrete switches from a passive to an active state.

Applications of light-reflecting concrete are be found in architecture, interior design, product design and in areas relevant to traffic safety. It may be used, for example, to highlight hazards (steps, curbs, platform edges, tunnel entrances) as well as in the design of façades, floors and ceilings.
