Glass Manufacturing & Handling

Glass Manufacturing & Handling
Glass Manufacturing equipment requires materials that can withstand high-heat, while maintining extremely low thermal conductivity. They must resist oil, and offer wear-resistance and low deformation. Many of these materials absorb less oil than glass-graphite parts which helps to reduce checking in glass containers. A variety of plastics, composites and ceramics are used in the production of glass panels for various industries. These materials are well-suited for handling hot glass articles without marring, thus reducing maintenance costs & down-time, as well as, increasing productivity and yields. High-performance glass handling materials include; Vespel, Meldin, Celazole PBI, Torlon, PEEK, G-10, G-11, Macor & others.
