We Invented Glass-Ceramic

Our story about EuroKera begins in 1940, when Dr. S. Donald Stookey joined Corning, one of our two parent companies. One of his discoveries was the material family of glass-ceramics, which would later give birth to the Corning cookware products. EuroKera inherited this exclusive knowledge and expertise. Today, we instill it into every surface we make, while working to develop innovative glass-ceramic products for tomorrow.

 

EuroKera, The Expert in Glass-Ceramic

EuroKera is a global leader in advanced cooking surfaces and glass-ceramic solutions. Born in the heart of France in 1990, EuroKera is founded by two of the most prestigious companies in the world: Saint-Gobain and Corning Incorporated. Since then, our innovative solutions have been taking the potential of glass-ceramic to an always higher level.

While providing outstanding customer service we push the technical and performance limits further while keeping the unique French elegance and taste for exclusive design. EuroKera is driven by a passion for products and the people who gather around them – creating and strengthening social relationships, and sharing unforgettable moments and experiences that transform their soul.

Our Manufacturing Process

1 We Begin in France, Cooking Capital of the World

The process of glass-ceramic cooking panels manufacturing starts at our KeraGlass facility located in Bagneaux-sur-Loing, France, about an hour outside of Paris.

Before we can cut and add finishing touches to our cooking panels, we first create the glass from which they are made. After making glass for more than 350 years, we are quite good at it.

2 Melting and Molding

Raw materials, including recycled glass from our own factories, as well as natural sand, are melted into a liquid glass.

The glass is passed between two rollers and cooled to form a sheet. Sheets of the newly formed “green glass” are produced to different specifications depending on the final product they will be used for.

All our “green glass” must pass a quality inspection before being shipped to one of four transformation facilities.

Our manufacturing process for creating “green glass” meets or exceeds safety, industry, and environmental standards at every stage.

3 What is “Green Glass”?

Only glass made with a very specific composition, or “green glass,” can be used to create EuroKera’s glass- ceramic products.

4 Our Global Transformation Facilities

The KeraGlass manufacturing plant ships the French “green glass” to one of four global transformation facilities, where the conversion to glass-ceramic is made and our products are finished.

We strive to uphold our commitment to quality throughout every step of the design, production and delivery process, and work closely with our customers to exceed their expectations.

5 Quality Production Worldwide

To Your Exact Specifications
After an initial quality control inspection the glass is cut and edged to each manufacturer’s specifications.

Beveled edges, openings for integrated features such as knobs or vent hoods, special shapes and similar options are completed at this stage.

6 Finishing Touches

Enamels and finishes are applied and set in panels engineered to resist wear and cooking damage caused by heat, spills, friction and stains.

7 Perfect and Inspect

The “green glass” undergoes a cycled heat treatment called “ceramming” or a controlled crystallization of the glass, to form glass-ceramic.

This process gives the new glass-ceramic material its unique mechanical strength and temperature resistance. Resins may be applied at this point, along with layers for opacity, protection or color control, on the bottom of the panels. Then it’s on to one final inspection, and voila!
