The new challenge for the glass industry is to keep pace with increasing demands for productivity and flexibility by remaining competitive. This entails a new entrepreneurial spirit, investments and, above all, a reconsideration of the corporate organization.
For over 60 years Bottero S.p.A. has been responding to these challenges with professionalism and expertise, thanks to its proven experience in integrated glass handling and storage systems, in cutting systems for float and laminated glass, beside the technologies 4.0 combined with AI.
With over 200 plants for the float glass production, Bottero is the “unmissable” partner for all those that produce and transform the glass.
Being the global indisputable leader in the field of cutting tables, Bottero S.p.A. expresses itself at its best in the integrated systems of storing, handling, cutting and processing of glass (grinding and drilling also in shape) with a wide range of products.
Some of our proposals:
- Automatic warehouse equipped with aerial overhead gantry systems;
- Shuttle system for the automatic feeding of cutting lines;
- Automatic stocking system of rest pieces;
- High-performing cutting line 548LAM X-Y for laminated glass;
- Automatic cutting lines for laminated glass and float glass (363BCS);
- Automatic robotized area with automatic unloading on A-racks, L-racks and harp racks
Walker Glass and Vitro Glass have once again teamed up to expand their selection of low-e coated acid-etched glass.
Architects now have the choice between two full surface finishes from Walker Textures® on surface 1, with Solarban® high performance coatings from Vitro Glass on surface 2. This combination provides multiple benefits such as privacy, energy performance and a uniquely appealing aesthetic.
Walker Textures® Satin and Opaque finishes boast exemplary wear, stain and scratch resistance properties. These products offer high visible light transmittance and glare control, with no significant impact on solar performance. They are also highly effective as bird safe glass solutions and meet the requirements for local law 15, NYC’s bird deterrent regulation. When combined with Solarban® high performance coatings from Vitro Glass, these finishes represent a truly innovative design option.
Utilizing a magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) coating, Solarban® R77 glass joins Vitro Glass’s family of neutral-reflective low-e glasses to showcase reflectivity that is higher than that of Solarban® 67 glass but lower than that of Solarban® R100 glass.
Thanks to its balanced, reflective visual quality, Solarban® R77 glass is ideal for realizing façade and curtainwall designs intended to capture the visual character of the sky and ambient environment.
On the building exterior, Solarban® R77 glass offers a crisp, silver-blue transmitted color. On the building interior, Solarban® R77 glass provides clear exterior views and soft, natural, neutral daylighting. Its low interior reflectance means Solarban® R77 glass offers crisp, lively views of the outdoors.
Solarban® R77 glass must always be heat-treated, even for laminated applications commonly suited for annealed glass.
ClearSpacer is a revolutionary new transparent spacer offering edge to edge fully transparent views for architectural applications or for refrigeration cabinet and refrigeration door markets. It is a high performance urethane based clear spacer with preapplied acrylic sealant on the sides for instant bonding to glass. It can be used on the verticals where clarity and transparency is desired, in combination with any type of desiccant filled spacer on the horizontal spacer sections covered by framing. ClearSpacer has been tested and shown to pass refrigeration testing at the SSV lab in Italy. It is the first flexible spacer and organic spacer to pass such testing. Full view clarity and durability are now available at the same time!
SWM™ is a global leader in Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) interlayer film solutions. Our diverse Argotec™ interlayer film product line is custom engineered to offer precision extrusions for a variety of glass lamination applications. SWM films are unmatched in optical clarity, hot and cold characteristics and offer the best overall quality in the glass lamination industry. Argotec EVA Interlayer Film is custom engineered from copolymer resin and is used as an interlayer sandwiched between two pieces of glass or plastic sheet. Argotec EVA interlayer film is ideal for use in smart glass applications like privacy for conference rooms.
Argotec™ Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Interlayer Film Argotec™ Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Interlayer Film, custom engineered from high-performance resin, provides strength and optical clarity when sandwiched between multiple layers of glass and/or plastic sheets. These glass lamination films provide unmatched optical clarity, lay flat, and overall consistent quality. SWM thermoplastic polyurethane TPU film is used extensively in aerospace, military and commercial bullet-, impact- and hurricane- resistant composites. Copolymer-based optical interlayer EVA films are used to laminate architectural switchable glass composites.
EVALAYER High Density Level D-380 is a full cross-linked thermoset EVA film for glass lamination that offers the highest density level of EVA component in the market. By having higher density, the adhesion on the laminated glass edges will be stronger, the UV rays rejection and the moisture resistant will be higher and the sound proofing performance will be better, making the final product very stable over time.
Combining the unparalleled cross-linking capabilities with the D-380 Density level of EVALAYER, the laminated glass producers will have unlimited options to offer to their clients on safety, decorative and architectural laminated glass among others.
Density is a measure of mass per volume. Using EVALAYER D-380 films is the same of having a new bottle of water filled to drink. In the case of EVALAYER all the roll is filled with EVA component. Lower density EVA films could be compared with partial-filled new bottles of water. Would you buy a half-filled new bottle of water?

There is only one EVALAYER High Density Level D-380. It is from us.
Glass-U P2 systems bring glass balustrade innovation to a new level. This new generation of glass balustrade systems improves the glass alignment and decreasing installation times. It is possible to align glass panels, operating only from the internal side of the balustrade thanks to its patented system ACE-BLOCK technology. Fully tested to meet international and US code standards.
Tremco Sealants and Waterproofing has provided extruded rubber products and glazing sealants to the residential and commercial markets for over 40 years. Tremco provides customers with a myriad of solutions for all types of glazing systems including, glazing tapes, glazing sealants and extruded and molded rubber products. Choose from over 20,000 different profiles in our portfolio, or let our Design Engineering team assist you in creating new profile.
Protection doesn’t stop at the glazing assembly. Preventing air and moisture infiltration at the transitions from window or curtain wall assembly to the adjacent wall assembly is critical to energy efficiency of the building and creating a comfortable environment for its occupants. Any breakdown in the assemblage could allow warm air to enter the building and condense in the wall cavity, leading to deterioration of the building envelope components and increased energy consumption and negatively impacting the indoor air quality. Tremco offers a full line of transition and sealant solutions, critical elements creating and maintaining the building envelope.
Wagner’s Level Lock Plus™ base shoe moulding system is where fast installation meets innovative adjustment. The intuitive locking mechanism allows the glass to tilt up to 2° in either direction to ensure an easy, precise glass alignment. Alignment tabs are available in various angles to ensure base shoes are seamlessly positioned at the beginning of install.
We designed our shoe with a grooved, symmetrical inner channel to allow the mechanisms to be installed from either side of the shoe—providing additional safety when installing on elevated surfaces. The mechanism’s advanced tilting capabilities allows the installed glass to better withstand environmental changes that could lead to cracks, or shattering.
Level Lock Plus™ has been designed to create optimal sightlines without obscuring the intricate details of your design. A post-less system with fully concealed components and the ability to choose between stainless steel or aluminum cladding makes Level Lock+ an ideal glass railing solution.
