FLOAT GLASS – NOVA FLOAT
Float Glass is superior in quality when compared to other flat glass and has the unique characteristics of excellent surface finishing, flatness, uniform thickness, high optical quality and bright appearance. The float process was invented in 1952.
Float technology has rapidly replaced plate and sheet facilities worldwide in recent decades. Float glass derives its name from the float process used where the molten glass floats on the top of molten tin.
