Game-Changing VPIR-200 ClearShield® Application Machine Wins Industry Award!

We end 2022 on a high with the news that our ClearPad™ VPIR-200 ClearShield® application machine has won the prestigious US Glass Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Award for Machinery: Glass Coating Equipment!

Introduced at the world’s biggest glass show Glasstec in Düsseldorf, Germany, earlier in September, the ClearPad™ VPIR-200 has truly revolutionised the speed and efficiency of applying ‘non-stick’, easy-clean ClearShield® glass surface protection. With its quick line speed and infrared pre-heating for instant curing, users have discovered it significantly reduces production time, handling and labour costs. Glass processors also appreciate VPIR-200’s fast payback. Finally, the innovative pad application ensures virtually zero product wastage and no airborne particulates.

We are honoured to win this esteemed award and we thank the readers of US Glass magazine for helping us do so.
