Isolar community is made up by more than 30 companies in Europe, with an output, which exceeds 10 million square meters of insulating glazing per year, using Isolar process.
More than 40 years ago Alfred Arnold, father of the current license Isolar, working as a glass manufacturer had a revolutionary idea. He replaced the rigid welding of the double-glazing with an elastic seal, which guaranteed sealing, keeping the distance between the glasses by means of a partition profile.
As a result of this invention, the breaks of production and sending decreased considerably, increasing the durability of the insulating units.
Nowadays, more than 99% of the insulating glazing produced in Europe use Isolar system. This was a revolutionary progress in glass industry, since the production of thermal insulating glazing, could be made in minor or medium industries.
In 191, Alfred Arnold transferring the first licenses of his invention was able to create a new operative field for the minor industry, which today we must keep and defend. The development of "CRISTALGLASS" has been produced in a similar way in other companies belonging to Isolar community.
