The Honduran company Windotec has made a significant investment in the production of safety glass.

Windotec is a company located in San Pedro Sula (Honduras) that stands out for being a leader in the region and the only one in the country specializing for more than 15 years in the field of glass processing. It has recently placed its trust in the renowned solvency of Hornos Pujol and in particular, a Pujol 100 PVB+, installing a unit measuring 40x28.

With this purchase, Windotec has managed to consolidate its project of having a factory equipped with the best technology for the production of three variants of laminated glass: conventional laminated glass, armored laminated glass, and impact-resistant or anti-hurricane laminated glass specially designed for sale and installation in the United States and the Caribbean.

With Pujol 100 PVB+, Windotec will be able to reduce investment costs and will obtain significant savings in costs derived from greater energy efficiency for each unit of the laminated product. Besides, will take advantage of the versatility and flexibility offered by the oven for laminating PVB, EVA, and ionoplastics (SGP).

With Pujol 100 PVB+ it is not necessary to carry out humidity or temperature control during storage or processing. In addition, Pujol 100 PVB+ avoids the need to invest in expensive and dangerous calendering systems, which allows you to reduce energy efficiency costs by up to 70% compared to traditional autoclave systems and maintain fixed energy costs regardless of production.

Pujol 100 PVB+ includes as standard the Pujol e-Connect system, which allows remote monitoring and complete security, in addition to controlling and verifying the quality of production.
