Technical Information

TIKANA® is produced through the Fourcault process, the first fully mechanised process for the continual manufacture of sheet glass with its first industrial plants in 1914.

In this process, molten glass is drawn through the Fourcault nozzle that produces the distinctive appearance of machine-drawn glass with a certain thickness tolerance and wavy surface.
