During FS7 we launched the SGT’s ‘Compendium of Glass Melting’. This is a unique, CD-based document that contains almost 100 papers, PowerPoint presentations and lecture materials. With over 60 authors, it represents more than 1,000 man-years of ‘hands-on’ experience and covers all aspects of glass melting science and practical, glassmaking technology.  It is targeted at glassmakers, furnace designers and specialist industry suppliers. We believe that this ‘Compendium’ will be of interest to all in the glassmaking community – and is available to both members and non-members of the SGT.
