At the 70th Conference on Glass Problems in Ohio 350 participants from all over the world shared information about the latest trends and innovations in glass production.

Producers showed big interest in PLANSEE’s contribution to today’s glass technology. Whether molybdenum glass melting electrodes, tank reinforcements or stirrer equipment; with its leading edge technologies and high performance materials PLANSEE leads the way to a more efficient glass melting process.
As the world’s largest manufacturer of high melting refractory metals PLANSEE is a valued partner for innovative, cost optimized solutions in glass production.
A superior corrosion resistance for minimized corrosion and a longer service-life.
A special coarse grain structure for optimized creep resistance and best handling.
Highest purity avoiding any discoloration and bubbling.
The backbone of the success of its products is decades of expertise in powder metallurgy and wide application know-how. With a fully integrated in-house production PLANSEE ensures highest quality from the raw material to the final product. The company’s cutting edge production processes including hammering forging and hot rolling as well as the latest fabrication technologies lead to numerous advantages of PLANSEE molybdenum for glass production.

With the PLANSEE patented SIBOR® coating, molybdenum can now be installed even in the cold glass tank before the firing up process starts. Produced with a special heat treatment, SIBOR® reliably protects molybdenum from oxidation for a guaranteed period of time. Moreover, the coating sticks very tight to the molybdenum preventing any pilling.
The next opportunity to meet PLANSEE and get to know more about its products for the glass industry presents itself at the Glassman Middle East Trade Fair on the 8th-9th November in Dubai.
