Monday, 16 October, was an important date for Pilkington Italia, for the community of Venice and for the entire Veneto Region as the warm-up of the new furnace for glass production at Porto Marghera plant commenced.

The new line, which has been upgraded with the latest technologies, will produce roughly 600 tons of float glass daily, including Pilkington Optiwhite™.

The product - a low-iron extra clear float glass with very high light transmission - is practically colourless, and the green cast inherent to other glasses is not present.

It is therefore ideal for use where glass edges are visible or where a neutral colour is desired. As its light transmission is higher than clear float glass, it is perfect for applications where transparency and purity of colour are desired.

The multi million Euro investment that NSG Group made will also include the installation of emission control systems in the atmosphere, in compliance with environmental regulations, and create approximately 60 new employment opportunities.

This year glass is a great protagonist at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, tempered glass panels with surprising performances that thanks to the creativity of great designers and the skill of the artisans turn into surprising achievements.
At one traditional shopping centre at the heart of a Devon town, the solution is architectural – enclosing the previously open-air pedestrianised street with a large glass roof in order to create a space that can be enjoyed all-year-round.
Double-laminated IGUs were chosen to create the facade, whilst the glass the designers opted for is Guardian SunGuard® SNX 50/23 HT, helping to protect the building from rapid temperature changes.
Italian businesses participate in China Glass, the key glass event for the entire Asian market.
With the term “smart”, Master Italy always indicates those intelligent products that due to their ease and reduced installation time, aesthetic qualities and compact size, easily solve the most common problems of both the end user and the professional installer.
Effective April 8, 2019, Marco Schiavon has been appointed CEO of Forel North America.
