Last Chance to Submit Product Information for glasstec Product Preview
The September issue of Glass Magazine will feature a preview of the glass and glazing products exhibitors will have on display at the glasstec International Trade Fair for Glass, Oct. 23-26. To make sure your company is included, complete the submission form by Wednesday, July 25.

The possibilities in architectural glass continue to evolve, with greater complexity, bolder designs and new considerations at every point throughout the manufacturing and glazing process. It’s enough to be a little intimidating, but the opportunity to succeed and to push the boundaries exists and is ripe for the taking.

United Plate Glass Transforms Commercial Glass Offering

Adds DFI’s FuseCube via IGE

As part of their pursuit to deliver the best quality architectural glass, United Plate Glass (UPG) is streamlining the application of Diamon-Fusion protective coating through their newly purchased FuseCube. With the ability to treat large IG units, UPG will use the FuseCube to coat a wide variety of commercial glass, including storefronts, glass railings, spandrels, as well as their shower doors and heavy fabricated glass.

The Diamon-Fusion coating chemically bonds with the silica in any surface, creating an ultra-thin, invisible barrier that prevents staining, corrosion and environmental damage. And because Diamon-Fusion has no cure time (glass can be handled immediately), UPG will be able to fulfill orders faster and more effectively.

Covered by a new bird-friendly glass canopy featuring laminated glass, the renovation included the installation of 19,600-square-feet of glass and new immersive activities for the 72 birds that live there. The canopy replaces the original single-strength annealed float glass that was installed during the habitat’s construction in 1952, improving the aesthetics and energy performance of the glass while protecting birds inside the exhibit. Read more...
