Glass Technology Services (GTS) is to deliver another glass-training course in Sheffield, England on 16th October.

The one-day ‘Glass appreciation – an introduction to glass’ training course hosted by British Glass is a response to its increasing demand.

It is an ideal introduction for anyone new to working in the glass industry or dealing with glass products or issues.

The glass appreciation course is delivered in an informative and interactive style by leading specialists and introduces delegates to glass manufacture, processing, defects, glass properties, environmental considerations and recycling.

It also includes two hands-on practical sessions on glass melting and forming as well as the inspection of glass products.

The course introduces key topics such as, fundamental glass chemistry, forming techniques and common defects, performance, quality control and product failure.

GTS hope to cover issues specific to delegates’ own working scenarios, product ranges and experiences and to enable full question and answer sessions.
