Glass for the Automotive Industry

AGP DE COLOMBIA showcased its automotive glass skills by developing laminated windshields to replace original flat glass on ARG automobiles. The Company went on to develop replacement glass for classic cars and curved protective glass for car models, such as the OPEL GTC. The OPEL ASTRA panorama windshield was the first of the products in AGP DE COLOMBIA’s production line.

Initially, AGP DE COLOMBIA diversified its portfolio of products to include Ballistic Resistant Glass (BRG). From then on, it has grown this once niche product into the primary product of its portfolio, a success that has led the Company to be recognized by many as a leader in the production of Bullet Resistant Glass worldwide.

This success story led AGP DE COLOMBIA to formulate a specialized security product line that includes antitheft and anti-intrusion glass solutions. These glass products are used by the government, law enforcement authorities, and civil automobiles for protection against theft.

Glass Solutions for Military Vehicles

In recent years, AGP DE COLOMBIA has become increasingly focused on the development and improvement of products for military vehicles, such as the ones utilized by the US and the NATO.

Besides having accomplished international ballistic standards, the Company is also proud of having a series of outstanding compositions able to withstand high levels of ballistic attacks at extreme temperatures and multi-hit threats.

Architectural Glass

AGP DE COLOMBIA has produced Ballistic Resistant Glass solutions for many of the world’s greatest architectural projects. These projects include residences and offices of world leaders, as well as high profile buildings, such as the Pentagon. It is the only company worldwide to manufacture super-sized sheets of Bullet-Resistant Glass with dimensions ranging from 2.5 to 3.5 m. and a thickness of up to 39 mm.

AGP DE COLOMBIA has redefined the meaning of compound bending in architecture. Laminated and tempered architectural glass is suitable from the construction of single-story homes to forty-story skyscrapers.

Its engineering capabilities include the development of both framed and frameless glass solutions with the required experience and collaborative approach that enables the company to support its customers from the design to the production stage, while keeping costs to a minimum. Additionally, AGP DE COLOMBIA’s production facilities are capable of producing large windshields with complex dimensions for buses, trucks and any other large vehicles.

Glass for the Marine Industry

GP DE COLOMBIA’s Ballistic Resistant Glass compositions range from 57 mm to 80 mm. Recently, the Company began the supply of heated compositions that greatly improve the ballistic performance and life-span of the glass while providing the greater optical clarity required for the harshest environmental conditions.

With the futuristic designs of motorsport boats, the need for complex windshields has become a standard option for all the new boats being produced today. Once again, AGP DE COLOMBIA’s state-of-the-art technology for glass bending has made the Company one of the leading producers of OEM boat windshields in the U.S. marine market and a major player worldwide.
