Seasonshield Inc. Announces In-House Glass Lamination

Venice, Fla.-based Seasonshield Inc. has announced that it has installed an in-house UVEKOL glass lamination line from Surface Specialties UCB. Seasonshield, a producer of vinyl-framed, high-impact resistant windows and doors, said that the line will bring the company up to 40 percent in cost savings, as well as greater control over quality, lead times and waste.

According to information from Seasonshield, the UVEKOL glass lamination process is based on solvent-free, low pressure, low energy UV curing technology, which allows for substantial reductions in start-up and in ongoing energy costs when compared to traditional glass lamination.

"We were attracted by the ease of the one-component system, the speed of production, low capital expenditure and expandability," said Chuck Kowalski, operations manager. "Start-up has been as simple as advertised, and we are already achieving production levels of around 1,000 square feet per shift. The target, however, is to reach 1,500 square feet and we are working with Surface Specialties UCB to achieve this."
