Mappi’s SUPERTEMPER – a new frontier in high-end glass tempering

Post Time:Jan 15,2021Classify:Company NewsView:939

Mappi begins 2021 in the same way of 2020: proposing concrete innovations, giving its customers the ability to offer new products of the highest quality.

In recent months, investments in research and development have focused on improving the tempering process and the fire resistance of glass.

There are various indicators of resistance and hardness of glass, measured and researched to comply with the various regulations and applications. One of the main indicators is the “Surface Stress,” which is measured in Mpa.

Non-tempered glass has a Surface Stress of about 10-15 Mpa, while tempered glass is normally around >69 MPa (10,000 Psi); however, in particular applications customers need 160 Mpa or higher.

Mappi has developed particular technologies, which, thanks to the high construction quality of its machines, condense the innovative solutions necessary to achieve a Surface Stress of 160 Mpa or higher in the normal sized tempering furnace.

This is why Mappi has introduced a brand, MappiSUPERTEMPER, which identifies this unique possibility, a brand that all its customers can use to give even more value and prestige to their products.

A MappiSUPERTEMPER tempering furnace achieves the characteristics necessary to certify E30 glass for fire resistance.

MappiSUPERTEMPER is a technological success made possible thanks to the close collaboration between Mappi’s R&D team and some of the leading companies in the high performance glass sector.

Obviously, a tempering furnace with the MappiSUPERTEMPER option maintains all the technical and functional characteristics that have made Ats 4.0 and Fox the milestones for those seeking excellence, reliability and reduced consumption.

SUPERTEMPER is only the first of the innovations and improvements that Mappi is preparing for those who want to be at the forefront of the glass industry. Mappi’s R&D department does not stop there and soon there will be other exciting news during 2021.

SUPERTEMPER is a registered trade mark owned by Mappi.
