Safety sheet glass is divided into Tempered glass (“Stalinite”) and Laminated glass (“Triplex”). In retail sales, the prices for toughened glass and triplex are approximately the same; moreover, the FSGS provides only prices for “safe flat glass”, which were calculated based on sales of building materials and sales.
All glass produced by the float method is assumed to be flat glass (it involves production by interaction of primary raw materials (charge) with molten tin). Flat glass producer prices were calculated based on sales of building materials and sales.
