Kormarine: an exhibition offering local market opportunities
Kormarine celebrates its 20th birthday – our visit report.
At the end of October 2017, the bi-annual exhibition Kormarine took place in Busan, Korea. During this – mainly domestic oriented, but 4th largest exhibition in shipbuilding worldwide - more than 44.000 visitors turned up to visit over 2.000 booths. The themes of this event were very diverse but dedicated to the maritime industry: from shipbuilding- & production plants to energy & environmental specializations.
Vetrotech participated, together with its customer and partner Jung Gong Ltd, to show the market our latest heated + fire-resistant glass solution: Thermovit PRO A0. This single-laminated glass is specially developed to meet the newest IGC Code, which states that wheelhouse windows of LNG carriers have to be fire-resistant classified A0. To offer more comfort and safety, Vetrotech developed a multi-functional glass that is not only fire-resistant, but heatable at the same time. As it is a single-laminate, the build-up is thinner than all other glasses offered in the market with the same functionalities.
