SpectrumColorLogo

Spectrum Glass Company, with a very heavy heart, has announced that it began the process of closing its operations in May 2016 due to hard business and economic realities.

Our consistently reduced levels of sales simply cannot cover the fixed costs required to operate a facility of our size. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of our partners, customers, artists, and other who have supported Spectrum Glass over the past four decades and who continue to support us now. We will continue manufacturing over the next 60 to 75 days and will continue selling the product inventory we currently have on hand over the months ahead.”   This email address is being protected from spambots.

DenverLogo

Denver Glass Machinery has redesigned its glass melting furnaces. With a new door design, the blowing artist no longer has to have the door fully open to get a gather. Not only are artists not blasted with heat every time they open the door, but full-time blowing artists who have tested the prototypes for Denver have discovered that the furnaces also have improved element life. With the new design, when the door casting needs to be replaced, you simply lift it out and slide in a new one, and the entire furnace is still rebuildable just like the old design. The average life span of the crucible is seven years. These furnaces are available in 60-, 135-, and 200-pound capacities. The experienced sales staff at Denver will be happy to assist you with your buying decision.

Kaiser-Lee-cullet

Kaiser Lee LLC has just added a full line of Wissmach Glass Cullet. Cullet is generated when pieces of sheet glass need to be cut to size in order to box it for distribution. The edge “cut-offs” are thrown into a barrel, thus breaking the glass into smaller pieces. Some of the cullet is used as an ingredient in the new mixture for the next furnace load. There is more cullet left, however, than Wissmach can use for the glassmaking process. Since the cullet comes from already tested fusing glass, it provides an affordable way for glass artists to obtain perfect compatible glass for castings, pot melts, vitrigraph stringers, frit making, and many other applications. The cullet is available in all of Wissmach’s 90 and 96 COE colors and comes in convenient five-pound containers. Visit the Kaiser Lee website for cullet videos and free tutorials.  239‑540‑1137   This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.   www.kaiserlee.com

Medium Clear Metallic (F3-00-96 MIR), Coarse Clear Metallic (F5-00-96 MIR), and Mosaic Clear Metallic (F7-00-96 MIR), once fused, will stand out and add an unmistakable “lux” look to designs.

Stress-tester

Ed Hoy’s International presents the Hotline Stress Tester, a new tool to help determine proper coefficient compatibility. In order to fuse pieces of glass together, they must have an equal coefficient of expansion (COE) to prevent breakage. When two different COEs are fused together, stress is added to the glass. Stress due to incompatibility will not allow glass to properly anneal, since one surface will be in compression and the other will be in tension. In time the glass will fracture. Use the Hotline Stress tester to ensure perfect results every time. Visit the company’s website for detailed product information.
