 - August 6, 2013, 1:10 AM

Netherlands-based Aviation Glass & Technology has reached an agreement with Airbus Corporate Jet Centre to supply a range of glass and mirrored glass products.

According to Aviation Glass CEO Frans van Hapert, “The crystal-clear UV-resistant glass is 20- to 25-percent lighter than its polycarbonate alternative [and] the superior damage- and scratch-resistance of the glass in all aircraft applications meets growing industry demands to reduce life-cycle costs.”

The Aviation Glass technology will be introduced for the first time in aviation on an Airbus ACJ320 to be completed by ACJC at its facilities in Toulouse, France.
