SF-Kooperation does not intend to market Reolux® in the Gulf region as a ready-to-lay paver; instead, the Reolux facing concrete will be produced as bagged material and sold to local concrete product manufacturers.
Natural or synthetic light sources are needed to produce the interplay of light and colour, which is a strong characteristic of Reolux. The correct angle of incidence is important for obtaining maximum light reflection, intensity and brilliance, especially when using synthetic light sources. SF-Kooperation is working with a renowned manufacturer of luminaires to develop a light concept specifically for this product to offer optimum results in all situations.
Reolux is available as a standard product in red, yellow, blue, green and clear. Other colours are available on request.
