Viridian plant upgrade brings Australian glass into 21st century


The Australian glass industry is ploughing on into the 21st century with the production of Low E glass, now manufactured after a major technology upgrade at the Viridian glass-making plant in Victoria.

This ensures that energy efficient Low E glass is being successfully produced for the first time in Australia using the CVD coating process, at Viridian’s glass production plant in Dandenong, Victoria.

CVD is a chemical process used to produce high-purity, high-performance solid materials, often used in the semiconductor industry to produce thin films.
