To produce glass, the minerals are melted to 1650°C. To ease the melting process, traditional E-Glass formulation contains added melting agents such as boron and fluorides. Unfortunately, their emissions are detrimental to the environment.
A drastic reduction of these manufacturing emissions is now possible with HiPer-tex™ glass, thanks to an advanced melting technology and a patented formulation that does not rely on adding boron or fluorides.
3B is a leading European glass fibre producer, and operates a state-of-the-art, eco-friendly glass fibre manufacturing facility in Birkeland (Norway), with a top priority to respect the surrounding environment.
