Instrument Glasses are proud to be stockists of AGC Glass. But what is AGC glass and how

Who is AGC glass?
AGC Glass Europe is the European glass branch of AGC, the world leader in flat glass, and
produces, processes and distributes flat glass for the building and automotive industries, as well
as the solar and high-tech sectors.
What is AGC glass material?
AGC tempered glass is manufactured using special tempering procedures unique to AGC Inc.
which has been proven to be much stronger and bendable than regular tempered glass. AGC
tempered glass has been known to reach 9H hardness levels.
Is AGC glass environmentally friendly?
AGC Glass Europe has an Environmental Management System providing support for achieving
the goals of our environmental policy. By using AGC glass, Instrument Glasses aim to
manufacture a variety of products using the best available technologies from the environmental
point of view, in order to minimise the environmental impact.
What can be made with AGC glass?
Did you know one in four buildings is glazed with AGC coated glass? Coated glass for greater
thermal insulation or solar protection. Toughened, laminated or fire-resistant glass for greater
safety. Acoustic insulation or antibacterial glass for greater health. Mirrors and decorative glass
for interior decor.
What’s more, one car in four is fitted with AGC glazing! Panoramic windshield. Available with
