Glass industry

Architectural

The architectural glass industry is an essential sector in modern building construction. It encompasses the manufacturing, processing, and installation of various types of glass for specific applications. 

 

These types of glass include flat glass, laminated glass, tempered

glass, tinted glass, reflective glass, textured glass, and insulated glass.


Common applications of architectural glass include windows, doors, building facades, store displays, glass roofs, and glass railings. Advanced technologies such as waterjet cutting and
thermal tempering are used to process and shape the glass.

Automotive

The automotive glass industry is a key sector in vehicle manufacturing. It focuses on the production, processing, and installation of various types of glass used in automobiles, such
as windshields, side windows, rear windows, mirrors, and panoramic roofs.

 

These components are manufactured with specific features to meet the safety, visibility, and comfort requirements of drivers and passengers.

 

Common applications of automotive glass include protection against external elements, noise reduction, resistance to impacts and shattering, UV ray filtration, as well as aerodynamic enhancements.

Glassware

The glassware industry focuses on the manufacturing of glass articles intended for various uses, primarily in the fields of tableware, decoration, and cosmetics. 

 

The products need to be durable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.

PRODUCTS :

Cobalt(II) Acetylacetonate
Corelink ® ™ CA-23

Cobalt(II) Acetylacetonate offer a compelling solution for enhancing adhesion between metal and rubber, while also mitigating oxidation-related deterioration. This is achieved through the vulcanization of a rubber composition containing both cobalt acetylacetonate and a vulcanizing agent in contact with the metal, resulting in an improved bonding process.

Cobalt(III) Acetylacetonate
Corelink ® ™ CA-16

Cobalt(III) Acetylacetonate presents an effective approach to improve the bonding between metal and rubber and reduce deterioration caused by oxidation. This improvement is realized by combining cobalt acetylacetonate and a vulcanizing agent within a rubber mixture and applying vulcanization when it comes into contact with the metal, resulting in an enhanced adhesion process.

Chromium(III)
Acetylacetonate

Chromium(III) Acetylacetonate is used in the glass industry for applications related to coloring, optical properties, catalysis, and research aimed at improving glass products. Its use must comply with current environmental and safety regulations.

Cobalt Oxide

Cobalt Oxide is used for its ability to color glass in blue, as well as for other applications related to the production of colored glass products, ceramics, optical glass, and reflective coatings. As with any industrial chemical, its use must adhere to the relevant environmental and safety regulations.

Soda Ash Dense

Soda Ash Dense is primarily used as a flux to lower the melting temperature, stabilize chemical compositions, adjust viscosity, and enhance glass quality. It plays a crucial role in the glass manufacturing process, contributing to energy savings and achieving high-quality end products.

Soda Ash Light

Soda Ash Light is a vital chemical compound in the glass industry, primarily used as a flux to lower the melting temperature, stabilize chemical compositions, adjust viscosity, and enhance glass quality. It plays a critical role in glass manufacturing by contributing to process efficiency and the quality of the final products.

Titanyl Acetylacetonate

Titanyl Acetylacetonate is used in the glass industry for coloring applications, primarily to impart a yellow or yellow-green hue to the glass. It is also employed in the production of dichroic glass, which changes color depending on the viewing angle, making it suitable for artistic, decorative, and optical applications. In research and development, this compound is utilized to study the properties of titanium in glass and to develop new glass formulations.

Iron(III) Acetylacetonate

Iron(III) Acetylacetonate is used to color glass in shades of green or blue-green, depending on the concentration and application method. It is used in the production of artistic and decorative glass, as well as in research and development applications to study the chemical and optical properties of iron in glass

Vanadyl Acetylacetonate

Vanadyl Acetylacetonate can be used for coloring glass in blue or green. It can also be employed in the production of optical glass to adjust optical properties.

Mono Butyl Tintrichloryde

It can serve as an agent to remove air bubbles in molten glass, as a catalyst in certain
chemical reactions, and as a stabilizer to alter glass properties.

PRODUCTS :

Cobalt Boro Acylate
Corelink ® ™ CBA-22.5

The Cobalt Boron complex is supplied at a 22.5% Cobalt concentration and contains half the carboxylic acid ligand compared to a normal di-soap. This acid reduction, together with the borate compound, improves the corrosion resistance of the steel cord. The ligands bonded to the Cobalt is a mixture of three carboxylic acid types, with the Boron atom being central. The function of this chemical is to improve the bonding of rubber to steel belt re-inforcing in radial tires utilized in the automotive industry. Cobalt bonds with the Sulphur in the vulcanized rubber, as well as the sulphided brass coating of the steel cord. The Boro-acylate is supreme amongst other anions, due to its superior performance under harsh ageing conditions such as heat, oxygen, moisture, acids and alkali.

Cobalt Boro Neodecanoate
Corelink ® ™ CBN-22

The Cobalt Boron Neodecanoate complex comprises of a central Boron atom, bound by three Cobalt monocarboxylates of Neodecanoic acid. The function of this chemical is to improve the bonding of rubber to steel belt re-inforcing in radial tires utilized in the automotive industry. The Co-Boro Neodecanoate provides excellent adhesion properties under severe ageing conditions, such as heat, oxygen, steam, acids and alkali.

Cobalt Stearate
Corelink ® ™ CS-9.5

Cobalt Stearate is a popular performing bonding agent, which enhances the bond between the rubber and the brass or zinc plated cords, as well as various bare steel.
