GlastonAir™ air flotation technology - Discover new tempered thin glass applications
Finding a way to truly temper extremely thin glass has posed a challenge to the glass processing industry. Either the solutions have been too cost-prohibitive
Finding a way to truly temper extremely thin glass has posed a challenge to the glass processing industry. Either the solutions have been too cost-prohibitive or then the end glass products have been of subpar quality. We have now developed a way to harness air flotation technology to temper glass down to 2 mm, allowing it to be used as an economically viable and durable option for a wide range of weight-sensitive applications.
Solar panels drive development of tempered thin glass
One of the most pressing drivers to tackle the thin glass tempering challenge has been the exponential growth in the global solar industry and the need for lightweight, rugged solar panels at a reasonable cost.
The new air flotation technology not only provides a solution to overcome the technical, cost and energy consumption limitations inherent with conventional heat treatment technologies, it also provides a superb end product for various applications where weight and cost are an issue.
GlastonAir™ is the fruitful result of this development. The unique air flotation technology allows a higher exit temperature, making it possible to temper thin glass down to 2 mm. The stable bottom heating ensures excellent and consistent end product quality.
