The event is dedicated to machinery and technological solutions for the glass industry in South America
Bekaert is a world market and technology leader in steel wire transformation and coating technologies.
While participating at Colombia Glass, Bekaert will showcase its heat resistant materials for the automotive glass and container glass production process.
Bekinox® stainless steel textiles offer many advantages during the production of automotive and container glass. The high quality fibers reduce deformations and scrap, boost production volumes and continuity and allow flexible and complex designs.
Bekaert contact materials for automotive glass bending are based on high quality stainless steel fibers that can be combined with other materials such as PBO, para-aramid and glass fibers. These materials can cover various parts of a hot glass bending system, including male moulds, press rings and rollers.
Bekaert also offers a wide range of heat resistant felts, knitted structures and ropes for the production of hollow glass. Also in this case, stainless steel fibers can be combined (or not) with other materials.
