September 2013

Welcome to the September 2013 issue of Glass International.

The issue is full of articles which, we humbly submit, are informative and relevant to the industry. The issue kicks-off with an in-depth profile of the Arc International site in Arques, France.

Technical features this month include plenty of articles on Energy Efficiency, Glass Handling, Architectural Glass, Glass Coating, Stemware Production and Lubrication.

Our comprehensive Events Diary includes previews of the forthcoming Glasstech Asia and Glass Expo events.

This, plus our regular columnists British Glass as well as the usual round up of news.
