FIREFLY FF800 GLASS ROLL COVERING was developed over 25 years ago specifically to replace asbestos roll cladding materials in the flat glass industries. FIREFLY millboards can be used in sheet form in a wide range of applications in the glass production industry, including heat shields, flue gas gaskets, and insulation pads for conveying newly formed glass components. However, it is in the form of rings for the assembly of sheet glass conveying rolls that FIREFLY FF800 demonstrates its unique high temperature strength, non-marking and long life properties. The FIREFLY 800 rings of typically 8 mm thickness are compressed onto a mandrel and machined. FIREFLY 800 covered rolls are used in the float, flat and vertical drawn glass processes.
Glass manufacturers currently using FIREFLY 800 Glass Roll Coverings include:
- NSG / Pilkington Group
- Saint Gobain
- Asahi Glass Group
- Taiwan Glass
- plus many roll builders, float glass lehr manufacturers and vertical glass processing machine builders worldwide.
