GGC Secondary Processing Unit was established in response to the increasing demand for safe glass products and the trend towards the use of processed glass for saving energy, in line with the management team’s strategic vision of improving the company’s diversity.
There is a growing need among today's consumers for higher safety, integrity and heat resistance of glass, to which toughened glass provides a successful response. Toughened glass (tempered glass & heat strengthened glass) is widely used in construction of trade centers and other buildings where preventing glass breakage in large pieces is of vital importance. In other words, whenever parameters like mechanical resistance and safety are in question, the use of toughened glass is a wise choice.
In building construction, toughened glass is used in frameless structures such as entrance gates or any places where people might be in danger of injuries, but where the product is required to impose no reduction in light transmission.
In addition to toughened glass production, GGC has started to produce insulating glass (multi-glazed) to satisfy the needs for energy saving, reducing noise pollution and improving indoor serenity and calmness. Multi-glazed units are made by on putting a separating gas-filled space between the separate panes of glass. Double-glazed and triple-glazed glass panels are made of two or three panes of glass fitted to a particular clearance with a spacer which is filled up with desiccant.
GGC Architectural Laminated Glass Production Line was established in order to offer the laminated product's properties for security and safety. A pane of laminated glass can be used in normal or multi-glazed windows.
Laminated glass simultaneously offers all three advantages of "reducing noise pollution", "improving security" and "providing thermal insulation". This product will not collapse due to a severe impact, as any broken pieces will be held together. At the same time, soundproof layers can be used between the glass panes to reduce the intensity of passing sound waves. Also, according to the UV radiation absorption table provided, a laminated interlayer will absorb sunlight's harmful ultra-violet radiation by 81-98 percent depending on the layer thickness - something which saves fabrics, carpets and furniture from gradual paling.
As part of a decorative glass development plan and in fulfillment of consumers’ aesthetic tastes, GGC has started to produce other processed glass products such as decorative laminated glass, back painted glass, printed glass and decorative coated glass.
