Float Glass Manufacturing Process
The first ‘manmade‘ glass was in Eastern Mesopotamia and Egypt around 3500BC! Production at that time was very slow and only for the rich upper class. Glass has come along way since then, with the first glass factory in the United States opening in Jamestown, Virginia in 1608, but still the production was very slow and tedious. Not until the early 1900’s came the invention of a machine that would make mass production of window glass possible. And in 1959, Sir Alastair Pilkington introduced a revolutionary ‘float glass production‘, which is still used in 90% of flat glass today!
History of Glass Production
Since the 1950’s, glass production has come even further, offering glass to fit the needs of virtually every home and business.
