Post Time:Apr 09,2012Classify:Company NewsView:366

Vetrotech Saint-Gobain, a unit of Saint-Gobain Glass, will manufacture what it claims is the “world's toughest fire-resistant glass”.


A new production line to make Contraflam was set up inside Saint-Gobain's facility at Sriperumbudur, near Chennai.


It was inaugurated by Mr Jean Pierre Floris, President, Innovative Material Sector, Saint-Gobain.


This is part of the company's Rs 60-crore total investment plan at the advanced glass solutions facility.


The company said the product was introduced after architects and builders demanded a transparent fire protection material.


Opaque fire protection construction material is now available , but the demand was for a transparent material that also met safety requirements.


Vetrotech Saint-Gobain is a specialised business unit within the Saint-Gobain group solely dedicated to the R&D, testing, manufacturing, and sales and marketing of fire-resistant glasses.


Saint Gobain has invested over Rs 3,300 crore in India since inception.


It has two manufacturing facilities — in Sriperumbudur (Tamil Nadu) and Jhagadia (Gujarat). Another facility is coming up in Bhiwadi (in Rajasthan).
