GUARDIAN INDUSTRIES INTRODUCES ULTRAWHITE™ GLASS

Global glassmaker meets market demand with unprecedented availability of new low-iron glass

AUBURN HILLS, MI, (October 9, 2003) – Are you in the market for a crisp, clear glass without the long lead times? Do your customers want color neutrality and improved clarity on demand? Guardian Industries, a global leader in the glass, automotive and building products industries, may have the solution: UltraWhite™ low-iron glass.

Responding to market demand for increased clarity and color neutrality in glass, Guardian scientists reduced the iron content and added key ingredients to its clear float glass to create the company’s newest product offering. UltraWhite is a clear, high transmission glass product that can be used virtually anywhere regular float glass is used.

UltraWhite’s colorless appearance makes it a perfect choice for a variety of commercial and residential architectural applications, both interior and exterior, as well as original equipment manufacturer (OEM) applications. Examples include:

*

Appliances

*

Picture frames

*

Atriums

*

Skylights

*

Curtain walls

*

Spandrel glass

*

Display cases

*

Storefronts

*

Doors and entranceways

  

What really sets Guardian’s new product apart from others is the availability. Guardian’s unique manufacturing process, which includes frequent product runs, allows the company to produce and deliver quickly.

With the introduction of UltraWhite, Guardian is meeting our customer’s need for improved glass clarity,” says Tony Hobart, Guardian’s group vice president of North American sales and marketing. “But, we’ve gone one step further. Guardian will make UltraWhite readily available, which has not been the case in the marketplace until now.”

Guardian UltraWhite is available in 2mm-12mm thicknesses. For more information and to place an order, please call 800-521-9040.
