and, other aspects, we manufacture and supply all types, standard sizes and thickness of flat clear and colour glasses.
The term “Float“refers to a type of glass and the process by which it is made. Float glass is the basic glass from which
almost all flat glass products are derived. The float process involves literally floating the molten glass on a bath of a
liquid tin, resulting a perfectly flat surface on both sides. The float glass is produced in large sheets of 7m by 3.21m
or 3.66m. Later, they are normally processed into secondary dimensions. Available Dimension : 6000 X 3210 and 3660, 3210 and 3660 X

Glass has long been used for its transparency. Today’s glass is also
designed to meet specific requirements related to solar control,
decoration, security, acoustics, and architecture.
Main Types of Glass
Today, flat glass comes in many highly specialized forms
intended for different products and applications. Flat
glass produced by way of the float process is often further
processed to give it certain qualities or specificities. In
this way, the industry can meet the various requirements
and needs of the construction, automotive and solar
• Annealed glass
• Toughened glass
• Laminated glass
• Coated glass
• Mirrored glass
• Patterned glass
• Extra clear glass
Annealed glass is the basic flat glass product that is
the first result of the float process. It is common glass
that tends to break into large, jagged shards. It is used
in some end products and often in double-glazed
windows. It is also the starting material used to produce
more advanced products through further processing
such as laminating, toughening, coating, etc.
Toughened glass is treated to be far more resistant to breakage than simple annealed glass and to break in a more
predictable way when it does break, thus providing a major safety advantage in almost all of its applications.
Toughened glass is made from annealed glass treated with a thermal tempering process. A sheet of annealed
glass is heated to above its “annealing point” of 600°C; its surfaces are then rapidly cooled while the inner portion
of the glass remains hotter. The different cooling rates between
the surface and the inside of the glass produces different
physical properties, resulting in compressive stresses in the
surface balanced by tensile stresses in the body of the glass.
These counteracting stresses give toughened glass its
increased mechanical resistance to breakage, and are also, when
it does break, what cause it to produce small, regular, typically
square fragments rather than long, dangerous shards that are
far more likely to lead to injuries. Toughened glass also has an
increased resistance to breakage as a result of stresses caused by different temperatures within a pane.
Toughened glass has extremely broad applications in products for both buildings and, automobiles and transport,
as well as in other areas. Car windshields and windows, glass portions of building facades, glass sliding doors and partitions in houses and offices, glass furniture such as table tops, and many other products typically use toughened
glass. Products made from toughened glass often also incorporate other technologies, especially in the building and
automotive and transport sectors.
Laminated glass is made of two or more layers of glass with one or more “interlayers” of polymeric material bonded
between the glass layers.
Laminated glass is produced using one of two methods:
• Poly Vinyl Butyral (PVB) laminated glass is produced using heat and
pressure to sandwich a thin layer of PVB between layers of glass.
On occasion, other polymers such as Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA) or
Polyurethane (PU) are used. This is the most common method.
• For special applications, Cast in Place (CIP) laminated glass is made by
pouring a resin into the space between two sheets of glass that are
held parallel and very close to each other.
Laminated glass offers many advantages. Safety and security are the best known of these, so rather than shattering
on impact, laminated glass is held together by the interlayer. This reduces the safety hazard associated with shattered
glass fragments, as well as, to some degree, the security risks associated with easy penetration. But the interlayer also provides a way to apply several other technologies and
benefits, such as coloring, sound dampening, resistance
to fire, ultraviolet filtering and other technologies that
can be embedded in or with the interlayer.
Laminated glass is used extensively in building and
housing products and in the automotive and transport
industries. Most building facades and most car
windscreens, for example, are made with laminated
glass, usually with other technologies also incorporated.
Surface coatings can be applied to glass to modify
its appearance and give it many of the advanced
characteristics and functions available in today’s flat
glass products, such as low maintenance, special
reflection/transmission/absorption properties, scratch
resistance, corrosion resistance, etc.
Coatings are usually applied by controlled exposure
of the glass surface to vapors, which bind to the glass
forming a permanent coating. The coating process can
be applied while the glass is still in the float line with
the glass still warm, producing what is known as “hardcoated”
Alternatively, in the “off-line” or “vacuum” coating
process, the vapor is applied to the cold glass surface in
a vacuum vessel.
To produce mirrored glass, a metal coating is applied to one side of
the glass. The coating is generally made of silver, aluminum, gold or
chrome. For simple mirrored glass, a fully reflective metal coating is
applied and then sealed with a protective layer. To produce “oneway”
mirrors, a much thinner metal coating is used, with no additional
sealing or otherwise opaque layer.
Mirrored glass is gaining a more prominent place in architecture, for
important functional reasons as well as for the aesthetic effect
Patterned glass is flat glass whose surfaces display a regular pattern.
The most common method for producing patterned glass is to pass
heated glass (usually just after it exits the furnace where it is made)
between rollers whose surfaces contain the negative relief of the
Patterned glass is mostly used in internal decoration and internal
architecture. Today, it is typically used for functional reasons, where light but not transparency is desired, and the patterns are accordingly subtle. However, it has also at times been
fashionable as a design feature in itself, in such cases often displaying more prominent patterns.
Extra clear glass
Extra clear glass is not the result of processing of annealed glass, but instead a specific type of melted glass. Extra
clear glass differs from other types of glass by its basic raw material composition. In particular, this glass is made with
very low iron content in order to minimize its sun reflection properties. It therefore lets as much light as possible
through the glass. It is most particularly of use for solar energy applications where it is important that the glass cover
lets light through to reach the thermal tubes or photovoltaic
cells. Anti-reflective properties can be further increased by
applying a special coating on the low-iron glass. It can also be used
in windows or facades as it offers excellent clarity, which allows
occupants to appreciate true colors and to enjoy unimpaired
