Saint-Gobain SEFPRO has announced the forthcoming opening of its new manufacturing facility for sintered refractories at its existing production site, SEPR India.

The initial phase of investment is now complete and the official opening will be held in the first half of 2011, the supplier confirmed.

The product range of the new facility will include sillimanite, andalusite, mullite, high alumina, bonded AZS and zircon, designed specifically for the demands of the glass industry. All products will be made to the same quality standards as in the Savoie Refractaires sites in France, of which the performance is recognised worldwide.

SEPR India offers glassmakers the best possible quality of service for sintered products as well as fused cast products.
