Float Glass

Our customers include processors, merchants and distributors of glass, furniture manufacturers, appliance manufacturers and aluminium fabricators, as well as producers of automotive glass products to global OEM quality standards. We produce 260 000 tons of quality float glass a year, for supply to customers in the building and automotive sectors of southern Africa, Europe, the US and other export markets.


Manufacturing process

The ribbon of glass is then cooled, while still moving, until the surfaces are hard enough for it to be taken out of the bath without the roller marking the surface. The float glass manufacturing process was developed by Pilkington in 1959, taking flat glass technology to a revolutionary new level. The glass gains its lustrous finish and perfect flatness by floating on a bath of molten tin in a chemically controlled atmosphere.


Patterned Glass - Patterned Glass

We produce 14 different patterns in thicknesses of between 2mm up to 10mm, in lengths of up to 3 060mm and a ribbon width of up to 1 525mm.
