Glass - the building material of the new millennium
As a result of increasingly exacting specifications regarding thermal insulation, the demand for coated basic glass continued to grow. To meet this demand, Interpane, in 1993, in Plattling, introduced the first continuous-flow system - its own in-house development - and succeeded in multiplying its annual capacity six times over. This was followed two years later by the founding of Interpane Glasbeschichtungsgesellschaft mbH & Co., in Lauenförde, another coating works, equipped with Interpane's own special high-tech machinery. This plant uses the principle of vacuum coating. The coating material is applied by a system of cathode sputtering onto float glass.
