Every product that is put on the market within the EU borders must be CE marked, including glass intended for use in construction and buildings. The legislation requires that the mark must be visible, legible and permanent and can only be affixed if a Declaration of Performance (DoP) is issued. For example, the mark for tempered glass must be applied directly to the glass. The Costruction Products EU Directive n. 305/2011 provides that by affixing the CE mark the manufacturer declares, assuming its responsibility, performance values ​​of the marked products and ensures that the manufacturing and testing process complies with the relevant UNI EN standards. Products from extra-EU countries but installed within the EU borders must bear the CE mark to confirm their conformity and suitability for use. In the USA there are also standards for safety glazing materials used for all buildings and architectural purposes (ANSI Z97.1-2015), as well as in Australia and New Zealand where all safety glass is required to be marked indelibly (eg. NZS New Zealand building code) reporting the name of the manufacturer / distributor, the reference standard used for the tests (eg. AS / NZS 2208) and the classification of the glass. Additional data may also be required, as for example the license number. The marking is normally carried out in the bottom left corner. The mark can be also carried out on the edge of the glass if the thickness allows it, but it must be legible also after installation. Removable labels of any kind are not suitable for the purposes of permanent marking. The simplest and most economical device to carry out a high-quality permanent mark on glass is MARKER 101T, a portable sand jet marker equipped with a customized highly abrasion resistant stainless steel mask. The marking process can be automated through the installation of the EV automatic marking equipments EASYMARKER UP and EASYMARKER, designed to be combined with horizontal machinery (glass tempering furnaces, cutting tables, horizontal washing machines, etc.) and vertical machines ( double glazing, vertical washing machines, etc.) respectively.

BASILE VETRI CHOOSES AGAIN FRATELLI PEZZA: A NEW MISTRAL EVOLUTION SANDBLASTER
13 may 2019
Aci Catena (CT), Italy

It was back in 1996 when Basile Vetri of Aci Catena (CT) bought MISTRAL 1200, the first automatic sandblaster installed in Sicily. Now they have decided to replace their old sandblasting cabin with a brand new MISTRAL 180EVolution

Basile Vetri, founded in 1965, is an example of how Italian passion and craftsmanship, combined with the industrialization of the production process, allow to offer unique decoration solutions, which are of great interest to architects and interior designers. Taking advantage of the qualities of Mistral 1200 for more than 20 years, the Sicilian glassworks has been able to meet the needs of the market by offering normal, light and engraved sandblasting for all tastes. Now, thanks to the features provided by the new sandblasting cabin Mistral EV,  they will also be able to carry out variant blasting (also called shading), which is very useful for modern architecture solutions such as, for example, shower boxes, doors, partition walls, balustrades and parapets. Sandblasting on mirrors will also be easier thanks to the anti-static system the cabin is equipped with, which eliminates the risk of damaging the surface of the piece.

DECORATIVE SANDBLASTING WITHOUT STICKING A MASK ON THE GLASS
05 july 2018
Clusone (BG), Italy

In order to speed up the decorative sandblasting process, Fratelli Pezza has designed a mold system with which it is possible to carry out geometric patterns (squares, stripes, diamonds, circles, etc.) in automatic mode, avoiding the application of a paper or vinyl mask on each glass
Using the Amacor mold system on the automatic sandblasting machines of the Zephir and Mistral it’s possible to carry out sandblasted stripes and other geometric shapes (squares, rectangles, circles, diamonds…) without having to stick a mask (made of vinyl, paper, etc) onto every glass. This system allows to remarkably increase the production rate maintaining a good quality. There are several standard patterns available but on request it’s possible to manufacture customized stencils according to customers’ specifications. The “Amacor” system is mainly used by glass factories that produce doors, shower enclosures, partition walls, kitchen splashbacks and other furnishing elements in large numbers for wide distribution.

THE GLASS SECTOR THINKS BIG AND CHOOSES THE MISTRAL 260EV SANDBLASTER
11 april 2018
Clusone (BG), Italy

The first months of 2018 confirmed that the glass sector thinks big. Sales record for MISTRAL 260EV, the biggest model of Fratelli Pezza product range

Mistral 260EV has been primarily chosen by companies that process large-sized glass sheets, mainly working in the modern building sector for the construction of facades, partitions and parapets. Customers can take advantage of the great operational versatility of the machine and its special functions, such as shading and zonal sandblasting, to create very special surface effects that distinguish the final product from others available on the market. The Mistral EV series, which also consists of the Mistral 180EV and Mistral 120EV models, is characterized by a high efficiency filtration system, with automatic separation of the powders from the abrasive material, which does not require additional filtration units such as the cyclone separator. The Mistral EV sandblasters are also equipped with a revolutionary system that limits the accumulation of static electricity in the cabin, a phenomenon that occurs especially during the sandblasting on mirrors. The robustness and the particular construction of the Mistral 260EV allow the customer to work very heavy glass sheets with a thickness up to 50 mm.
