Forms Industrial Partnership with Chinese Glass Manufacturer Qinhuangdao
Arkema, a company specializing in glass coatings for the flat glass
industry and represented in the United States by Arkema Inc., in
Philadelphia , has announced that it is to partner with Qinhuangdao
Yaohua, China's leading hard coated glass producer on a second glass
production line project. This new line will use the next generation
Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) Low E process, jointly developed
by Arkema and its engineering partner Stewart Engineers.
This second production plant using Arkema's CVD Low E coating system
will allow Qinhuangdao Yaohua to add additional capacity for the
hard coated Low E grades within its range of thin glass and solar
control glazing products in 2007. This expansion comes two years
after a successful startup of the first line. The products from
this partnership will fulfill the growing demand of the local market,
while providing Qinhuangdao Yaohua with strong assets to maintain
its leading position in hard coated glass in China.
