Founded 20 years ago by a team of people with more than 30 years of experience, S.I.G.MA. quickly became a leader in Italy thanks to “alcoholic-binder” technology and innovative products, moving on to international markets, where it sells about 80 per cent of its high-quality production. In this article, S.I.G.MA. presents its most recent development, aimed at, the company says, improving glass corrosion resistance and thermal homogeneity of the glass gob.

S.I.G.M.A.: Specialists in refractory materials for the glass industry
From the very beginning in 1990, S.I.G.MA. has seriously pursed the aim of cooperating with the glass industry offering top quality materials thanks to the hard work of a team of people with more than 30 years of experience in the production of refractories.

• magnesia;
• fused cast refractories;
• insulating refractories;
• special cements and concretes.
