Manufacturing process for glass-ceraming
1 - Melting
Our raw materials coming from all over the world are melted in our tanks prior to be rolled. This is a key step of the process, from which all the properties of glass-ceramic will ensue.
2 - Rolling process
The melted glass, coming out of the tank, is laminated between two rolls before being cooled down and becoming an intermediate substrate with intrinsic properties.
3 - Ceraming
The special glass substrate endures another thermal cycle at high temperatures. The crystals, contained in the substrate, grow up and modify its molecular structure until it forms the right balance between the crystalline phase and residual glass in the material. This equilibrium confers to Glass-ceramic its main quality: resistance to high temperature and thermal shocks.
4 - Cutting
After the ceraming step, sheets of glass-ceramic can be either shipped to our retailers or be transformed in our finishing workshop where first they will be cut in to customized sizes.
5 - Edging
In order to provide a safe and mechanically resistant product with a nice finishing look, we are polishing our edges with different profiles (C-pencil, flat edges...) thanks to a CNC machine.
6 - Screen printing
The front glass-ceramic panels can be decorated with enamel printed frames of many different modern designs. The natural glance of the glass-ceramic offers the high-end look to the door and the good opacity of the enameled frame hides the technical assembly parts. Eurokera develops its own enamel solutions to ensure their heat, chemical and mechanical resistance.
7 - Quality check
Each part of glass-ceramic is inspected according to our standards in order to provide you the best product quality. Moreover, each step of our process has its own audits and quality checks in conformity with the European standards ISO, CE, EN,…
8 - Shipping
Sheets and cut parts are delivered to our retailers, distributors or manufacturers in a free and easy-to-handle packaging. We aim to supply the best service we can wherever the place our customers are based on Earth.

We provide improvements
Heat more, clean less
Our coatings IR Reflective and Heat Control - that only differ in terms of reflection color - keep 40% of the heat inside. The hearth is warmer, the combustion easier and the glass self cleaned by a pyrolysis effect.
This product meets great success with appliances that are connected to a water boiler or other heating system for the house.
Dress it to the nines
Enjoy the fireplace while on, and a smooth mirror effect while off with our mirror coating.
Sober and class.
Ever got tired to see yourself when the fireplace is off? Get rid of the annoying reflections in the glass with our anti-reflection coating. The glass completely fade in, leaving a feeling of luxury and quality.
Make it fit
Keralite 3D, we bend over backward
To match what you have in mind, we have to be flexible and our product as well. Literally.
We can curve quickly and easily glass to standard radius from 205mm to 1200mm and adapt to specific demands.
As for bending, we have a standard 45° angle that we can stretch from 25° to 90°.
Adapt the glass to your product: our design possibilities stay compatible.
Available in black, dark grey and soon light gray, silk-screening is a technique that thrives to fade glass in your product, hide some part of the structure with elegance or even be the decoration element of the whole.
Developed by our expertise, our enamels are rigorously developed and continuously tested during the process, to assure a high quality that stands out.
Be amazed with our chromium effect. Applied by silk screening, it can add a beautiful line over a black frame, a shiny logo that inspire quality or scattered dots to make your product glitter.
Going further with our unique digital printing
Our unique digital printing capabilities open new possibilities yet unimagined.
More flexible than silk screening, our technique allows you to customize your parts, limited series or identical references with different logos. No extra tooling cost.
That is where this new method makes a difference: limited edition, bi-color logos, complex pictures, etc.
We can print any high definition picture or photo you wish, in a wide color choice available or upon request. For one or one million parts.
