Stacks for life
Libbey designs glassware for professionals. Glassware enhances the whole experience that surrounds a great drink. Take a cocktail. Do you serve it in a beverage glass or a coupe? Because as we all know, a cocktail is more than just a drink. And its final look-and-feel is a combination of taste, garnish and the right glassware. But it does not stop at the looks. Libbey considers practical demands when designing glasses and employs various technologies to create barware tough glassware.
One practical consideration which is overlooked all too often is that professionals need glassware that doesn’t take up too much space. At Libbey however we designed many product ranges with just this in mind: the glassware you use most often must be stackable and mobile.
Libbey’s DuraTuff®. Because you can’t compromise on strength.
Libbey’s DuraTuff® treatment is a super strengthening thermal after-process for “pressed” tumblers
The DuraTuff® process is only performed on the upper third of the glass, which increases its resistance to thermal and mechanical shock. By treating this upper portion at a lower temperature than tempering, you put less stress on the glass. This has a positive effect on how the glass breaks and also improves its overall durability.
For stackable glasses, which need to be able to deal with the rigors of daily life in all sorts of demanding settings, you simply can’t afford to compromise on strength.
So it’s good to know that, thanks to their DuraTuff®treatment, our glasses will be up to the job, both today and tomorrow.
