GLASS and OTHER INDUSTRIES

Our knowledge of various technologies and our experience of materials which are resistant to high temperatures, abrasion or chemicals allow us to meet many challenges within your applications, with confidence. We operate in many areas and we adapt to your specific constraints.

Glassware

A VELVET HAND

univers-verrerie

The world of glassmaking is very specific and we had to listen to you and then use all our know-how, our experience and our mastery of raw materials to innovate by being the first to offer a NefaGlass® range of flexible metal products intended for all industries which shape glass in any way whatsoever (hand-blown glass, mechanically, laminated, drawn or spun glass, coloured, white or even black, cosmetics, perfumery, crystal, bottle, large containers, tableware, glass blocks, windshield, glazing, ampoules, syringes, optics, mirrors, etc.).

Gripping Contact

(Suction pads, mechanical extraction clamps, clamps and manual release forks, etc.)

  • Suction pads : Guaranteed optimum vacuum without preheating while maintaining the integrity of the product

For decades we have been supporting the greatest tableware glassware, adapting to new sizes, shapes, weights, colours, changes in materials and various innovations.

  • Easily adapts to existing equipment
  • No glass marking thanks to a "soft" contact
  • Excellent thermal and mechanical resistance
  • Unmatched lifespan

Specific contacts

(Forming-bending, banderillas, transport baskets, etc.)

  • No thermal shock or marking at contact points

Another very delicate phase during which the glass must not undergo any thermal shock with the support/skeleton on which it will take its final shape.

  • Limits thermal shocks
  • Perfectly adapts to existing equipment
  • No glass marking thanks to a "soft" contact
  • Excellent thermal and mechanical resistance

Fire protection rope lagging

Normally subject to ambient temperatures, the building sector has the obligation to provide "passive protections" in the event of fires in order to delay their spread and protect citizens and structures (buildings, safe rooms, tunnels, airports, electrical box, shopping centres, public buildings, etc.).

Of French production, the regularity of our fire-resistant rope lagging as well as our reactivity have been unanimously recognised by professionals in the trade for more than 30 years.

  • Solution with A1 approval essential to pass CSTB approvals
  • Fire and gas barrier
  • Compressible rope lagging, available from 12 to 120 mm diameter
  • For diam >120 mm possibility of so-called "earthquake-resistant" fire-resistant mat
  • Excellent thermal (750°C) and mechanical resistance

Cement factory

Dust, abrasive particles and calcination temperatures subject the production tool to strong constraints, so maintenance plays a major role in maintaining and operating optimum facilities. The challenge is to favour preventive maintenance which can be planned and controlled.

The major products for cement factories.

  • Insulation and sealing of rotary kiln from 200°C to 1390°C
  • Rotary oven back-up 750 to 1500°C
  • Sleeves and compensators for flue gas treatment ducts
  • Insulation and protection sleeves for cables & hoses
  • Nefalit® burner gasket
  • Protection curtains/thermal barrier
  • Gas exhaust damper seal
  • Furnace door insulation and sealing gaskets
  • ...

Brickyards – Tile Factories

An ancestral activity born from the art of firing the soil/clay. Today industrialised, it requires temperature control throughout the production process, to transform clay into building materials. Insulation and seal are essential both to control heat flows and to control energy expenditure.

The major products for brickyards & tile factories.

  • “High-temperature bumper” sealing of kiln cars
  • Nefalit burner gasket
  • Cable & hose insulation sheaths
  • Furnace back-up
  • Nefalit®-Nefex® insulation of mobile floors
  • Protection curtains
  • Gas evacuation compensators, flue gas treatment
  • Sealing of furnace entry and exit doors
  • Valve insulation

Incineration

A major pillar of our environmental challenges, the sector is in the midst of a transition to make the treatment of our household waste a source of energy which is beneficial to all, thanks to energy recovery. Energy performance also depends on the insulation and waterproofing solutions which are implemented on the installations.

The major products for incinerators.
