RATH is at home wherever heat-resistant materials are essential – and that includes the glass industry. The internationally active Austrian refractories manufacturer offers the complete range of highest-quality materials for the entire glass manufacturing process.
With more than 130 years of experience, RATH is regarded as a competence leader in the refractory sector. Its customers benefit from the widest range of products and service available on the market, coupled with extensive, industry-specific expertise – which also applies to the glass industry. The specialists at RATH have the required in-depth industry knowledge and understanding of the specifics of glass processing. RATH´s precision-crafted refractory products are designed for a wide range of applications, including container glass, float glass, C-glass, E-glass, and tableware.
At Glasstec 2022 in Düsseldorf, RATH will present a new, advanced and exclusively produced feeder expendable series – proving once again that the company attaches high importance to research and development.
The further development of refractory compositions is a challenge that RATH is taking on with great commitment. “After an intensive 5-year research and development process, the new FOURATH 4xx feeder expendable series is ready for introduction at glasstec in Düsseldorf”, said Robert Nusszer, Managing Director of the Sales Unit Glass at RATH. “This new product line is based on an optimized formulation which has been exclusively developed and produced by RATH.”
The product has been put through its paces in the RATH laboratories and has successfully passed the first glass factory trials in the last 1.5 to 2 years.
There is also news from RATH’s production facility for hot gas filter elements in Germany: A second production line is currently under construction at the Meißen plant and is scheduled for completion and commissioning in 2022. The filtration business line on one of the business lines has seen a significant growth within the RATH Group.
“It has great potential since the glass industry has to drastically reduce its footprint on environmental pollution and the greenhouse effect worldwide. RATH is committed to advancing environmental protection and helping its customers in the glass industry achieve their ambitious environmental goals. Thus, RATH continuously develops and invests in this technology”, Robert Nusszer summarized.
