Glass factories are large and very capital and energy intensive. Excessive start-up time, down time and breakage can significantly affect the economics of glass making, so consistency of raw material and reliability of supply are critical.
AMI’s product quality, logistical expertise and technical support all come together to the maximum benefit of AMI’s glass customers. From its Georgia, USA mines and processing plant, AMI is a global supplier of high quality kaolin products to this industry.
AMI’s Acti-Min® FG-5 kaolin product is a specially produced air-floated clay for use in the manufacture of e-glass type fiberglass used for yarn and reinforcement. Selectively mined and tightly controlled for coarse particles and chemistries, Acti-Min® FG-5 product serves as the primary source of alumina, optimizes the customer’s melting process and reduces or eliminates process upsets related to the kaolin portion of the formulation.
