The Fenzi Group, a chemical leader for secondary processing of flat glass, will showcase several innovations at Vitrum 2009. At the stand dedicated to Glass Alliance, an international network to which the group belongs, and which produces and distributes worldwide all that is needed for the industrial production of insulating glass units, trade professionals can take a close-up view of state-of-the-art products in terms of quality and reliability. Fenzi“s own investments in research and innovation have led to the development of new products combining high levels of performance with environmental protection. Focusing on the potential of solar energy, the company has created the new division Fenzi Solar Coatings. This undertaking has resulted in Solarlux, the new complete line of paints for solar mirrors designed to offer both energy efficiency as well as high resistance. Designed to make the most out of new technologies for solar thermal plants, this new line of paints meets the highest durability and resistance standards. The Solarlux paints guarantee excellent chemical resistance to corrosion and UV radiation, top performance under thermal and environmental stress and outstanding abrasion resistance. This new Fenzi product has such innovative characteristics that the specific tests required new reference parameters, which Fenzi obtained in collaboration with the industry leaders. These new tests measure the chemical-physical performance of Solarlux in a variety of critical stress situations, validating the breakthrough technology used in its design and production. An additional demonstration of the company“s commitment to energy savings and environmental protection is the international success scored by Thiover. Using Fenzi“s polysulphur sealants specifically formulated for manufacturing insulating glass units, builders can obtain LEED points and certify the buildings according to the standards of the American Green building rating system. In fact, Thiover sealants provide outstanding performance for insulating glass units. They are completely non-hazardous and solvent-free, with excellent mechanical properties and extremely low water and gas permeability. The Fenzi group has always been committed to the quest for new solutions to facilitate the use of its products. In fact, the new Fenzi Group site dedicated entirely to the Aquaglass line of one-component, water-based decorative paints, part of the Decover product range, is now up and running. The group thus offers its customers direct access to the formulas so they can be completely certain to obtain the desired RAL coloration. They can just enter their username and password, issued by the company at the time of purchase, on the site www.fenzi-aquaglass.com, and immediately receive precise instructions on the quantities of base colours to be mixed together in order to obtain the preferred shade in the amount needed. This is excellent news for the trade, which can now rely on quick service and even greater efficiency. The innovative coloration for Butylver, Fenzi“s solvent-free one-component sealant suited for internal insulation (first barrier) of insulating glass units, is characterized by minimum water vapour and gas permeability, high aging resistance, outstanding adhesive properties on glass, aluminium, steel and stainless steel, and will now also be available on the market in grey. The availability of different colours makes this particular sealant a perfect solution for the aesthetic needs of architects and designers.
