Float Glass Plants

Float Glass is nothing but a sheet glass derived its name from the manufacturing process which is “Float Process” invented by the UK based sheet glass manufacturer “Pilkington” in the year 1950. Most of the sheet glass produced world-wide now is through Float Process. Float Glass is mainly used in commercial glazing, residential glazing, interiors, doors, windows, furniture, automotive glazing and locomotive glazing etc. Float Glass is the second largest segment of glass industry and mainly produces clear glass and tinted glass in small volumes. Normal Float Glass is further processed into various end products such as Insulating Glass Units (IGU) for Glazing, Solar Control Glass and Reflective Glass for Glazing, Mirror Glass, Safety Glass through toughening, laminating and coating etc by processing machinery to produce the various end-use products. National Building Code for glazing require that all building glazing should be confirmed to safety guidelines and use only toughened glass to meet the required safety criteria for different applications and usage location. Automotive and Locomotive glazing require to meet the stringent standards on safety set by the respective industry bodies. We provide turnkey project services for setting-up Float Glass manufacturing plants from conceptual stage through technology selection and sizing the investment, plant design, engineering, procurement, erection and commissioning of the plant into commercial production with single point responsibility.
