Pyroverre acquires the Cluzel mirrors in France


Pyroverre is a glass products processor based in Châteauneuf-du-Rhône (Drome), storer and distributor of fire resistance glasses from Pilkington (NSG group) for the southern part of French territory.
The company, created in 2010, is specialized in the transformation of Pilkington Pyrostop and Pilkington Pyrodur glass products. She cuts custom glass for a clientele made up of mirror makers and carpenters. Its design office is dedicated to specific customer requests to ensure compliance with fire regulations.
In 2015, the Côté Verre company, founded by Maryline Pereira, joined the group to offer online sales of all types of cut, shaped and then shipped glazing from the production workshop. The online configuration tool makes it easy for customers to order on the site.


Why the Cluzel mirror?
We asked Mathieu Guenin, manager of the company, to explain the reasons for this takeover. Mathieu Guenin and Maryline Pereira know that the implementation is the continuity of Côté Verre's activity, the demand from local customers being recurring and increasingly important. They then form an installation team. They quickly realized that it would be easier to do an external growth operation. They are interested in a possible acquisition and have found the miroiterie Cluzel in Montélimar, near Châteauneuf-du-Rhône. The manager, Danielle Fargier, wanted to retire. She was assisted by Eric Coin on a technical level with solid know-how.
The company's equipment allows for the cutting, shaping and drilling necessary for simple mirror-making operations. It has a van with a glass-holder gantry. The store has an area of ​​80 m2 and the workshop of 160 m2.
The clientele consists mainly of individuals and professionals as well as local administrations.
Integration and transformations
The takeover took place at the end of January 2021. Mathieu Guenin recruited Paul Fabre as agency manager as well as Dorotea Nacasabog as sales assistant. Dannielle Fargier will accompany them for three months to pass on his knowledge to them, while Eric Coin will continue his consulting, cutting and glass installation activity.
The existing store will host a new showroom in the form of a show apartment to enhance the offer of the mirror by presenting the products in situ. Railings, kitchen splashbacks, a floor slab, a staircase and a dielectric mirror hiding a screen. The turnover of around 300,000 euros is expected to rise to 600,000 euros.
Although the health crisis has slightly impacted Pyroverre's activity due to the shutdown of construction sites during the health crisis, Mathieu Guenin remains optimistic and believes that the French economy will rebound rapidly. At the same time, online sales via the Côté Verre site are experiencing significant growth, explains Maryline Pereira.

The glass

Considering the chemical composition it is possible to consider 3 different glasses.

The sodo-calcic glasses

The boro-silicat glasses

-The vitro-céramique glasses

 

The sodo-calcic glasses are mainly used in architectural markets.

The boro-silicate glasses, due to the low distention coefficient, are present on markets where are important temperature differences and with contact with fire

A very well-known trademark on this field is Pyrex.

The vitro-céramique glasses, with also a low distention coefficient are present in household appliance (oven doors, cooking plates, chimneys…)

 

This important difference in the chemical composition has results in their properties and using areas. Silica represents between 50% and 90% of the total composition.

Moreover :

-The sodo-calcic glasses have additions of calcium and sodium oxides.

-The boro-silicate glasses have boron oxide.

-The vitro-céramique glasses have aluminium oxide.

There are other oxides (Baryum, Lithium, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, Titan….) each giving a specific property, (color, melting point, chemical resistance, mechanical properties..).

A very interesting thing is that the glass compositions have not very different between to-day and 1600 years ago.

The flat glass is mainly used :

-70% in architectural

-20% in automotive

The car we have dreamed when we was a child

 

Is not exactly the same we drive to-day.

 

-10% in décoration and appliance

 

In architectural and automotive is required the more perfect transparency for the light and the weakest transparency for infrared light, because the solar energy is carried by infrareds (to minimize the increasing of temperature inside the building or the car). Infrareds carry also, during winter, the heat to outside and increase the energy used for heating.

Adjusting the glass chemical composition the more important flat glass suppliers Saint-Gobain, PPG, Pilkington, AGC …) succeed to manufacture such glasses.

Glass is transparent, but you can see that, in fact, it has a green colour (due to iron presence) more obvious for high glass thickness (more than 12 mm).

This green colour can be removed with manganese or selenium addition.

The glass can be also coloured.

Cobalt gives a blue colour

Selenium in large quantities gives a red colour

Copper oxide gives a turquoise colour.

With Nickel depending the concentration you can obtain a large colour range from blue to black

With tin you have shadowed white

With iron you can have, black, brown or green

With Titanium black yellow

With gold several different yellow

With uranium addition from yellow to fluorescent green

With Silver nitrate from orange to yellow

 

 

Colored glass from Egypte, around 600 years before JC

 

The colors grades are also depending from glass heating and cooling (like in pottery).

 

You can colour all the glass surface. Generally this operation is done with rolls (see the area for colored glass in the section machines comparisons) engraved or not, or with pistols.

You can also put a colored image on the glass (with screen printing or digital printing). For more information go to the corresponding area in machines comparisons.

 

Screen printing from Andy Warhol

 

 

 

 

Other more industrial exemple.

 

 

After this operation the glasses go inside a furnace to fix the color on or inside the glass depending the final using (advertising, architectural…).

 

 

Industrial glass manufacturing.

The different products are sent in a melting oven. The industrial process is called "float"

This process was design by a person called Pilkington. This invention allowed to decrease drastically the manufacturing cost and opened huge market for flat glass.

At the oven outlet the glass flows on a tin bath.

The glass goes inside rolls allowing to produce glass in the thickness required (3, 4 ,5 ,6 , 8 ,10  ,12 ,15 ,19 mm), is cut and sent to the processing companies.
