Clear glass, is a transparent glass, which allows passage of light. Clear glass offers little protection from heat, fire, physical and chemical impact, and is typically used across various applications, such as windows, furniture, shelves, partitions, doors, bathroom cubicles, balconies, staircases and the front side of commercial shops. Clear glass is also used as a base for further processing of glass to give it desired functional properties.
Value Added Glass
Value added glass category includes tinted, mirror, reflective, lacquered, frosted and low e-glass. Manufacturing of value added glasses entail value added processes such as inclusion of additives or coating of clear glass.
We own and operate our processing facility in Kala Amb, Himachal Pradesh, which is used to produce various processed glass including toughened glass, heat-strengthened glass, ceramic insulated glass, PVB laminated glass, and bullet-resistant glass among others.
