For the third time now, Edgetech will exhibit at Vitrum

For the third time now, Edgetech will exhibit at one of the most important trade fairs for the glass industry: Vitrum 2007, which takes place from 3-6 October in Milan.

You can find Edgetech in hall 13, stand A19.

Edgetech has been able to build on its excellent position in Europe since the last Vitrum in 2005. A highlight was the record experiment carried out by Edgetech in March 2007 in Dresden: Super Spacer® TriSeal™ was applied only manually to two float glass panes, each 20.79 m² and 6 millimetres thick, which were then lifted on one side by a vacuum lifter. The result: the glass pane stayed perfectly in place immediately after application and did not slip one millimetre. In July 2007 Edgetech opened its new production plant in the British city of Coventry. The factory, which cost around 4.4 million US dollars, is the first of its kind in England, and will solely produce Super Spacer® for warm edges.

Torsten Keemss, General Manager, Edgetech Europe: “We have been able to build up an excellent reputation in Europe for the “Warm Edge” from Edgetech. The Vitrum show in Milan is a great opportunity to reach interested parties and customers equally and to communicate the advantages of the Edgetech Super Spacer® directly to our target group.”
