Our glass materials, production and processing experts support the development of important industrial processes across various sectors.

We are the leading authority on glass materials and glass contact materials, with unrivalled knowledge and facilities.

In addition to our expertise in glass materials, we have experience in auditing, developing and supporting the implementation of glass manufacturing processes. This is combined with our materials characterisation, test-house capabilities and FEA capabilities to provide the insights you need to design and implement new processes.

We undertake demonstration work at both lab scale and pilot scale, and support your processes through to implementation.

Supporting process development leadership and expertise

We are experts in glass across a vast range of applications, so we can offer important, relevant insights from other sectors. This, alongside our capabilities for practical testing and process demonstration, means we are in an ideal position to support the development of new production and processing technologies.
