Glassmate Products

The GLASSMATE family of materials and products are especially engineered to meet the needs of the glass container industry. Many of POCO's glass handling solutions feature patented designs for a combination of graphite inserts and metal holders and supports. These patented designs were developed to offer quick mounting, quick release for fast changes and unique features to improve performance throughout the glass line. GLASSMATE parts are designed to fit existing equipment. Many parts are repairable for increased life of the part. 

All GLASSMATE hot glass-handling materials have the heat resistance, strength, durability and non-absorption characteristics to perform under the most rigorous conditions without damaging the glassware.

About us

Company details

Poco Graphite’s precision ware handling solutions and unique GLASSMATE® graphite materials can improve performance in container glass production, reduce machine downtime and increase yields. POCO is known for its designs, particularly precision holders and inserts that allow fast accurate machine setup and insert replacement. Standard steel holders are available in several types and sizes. POCO offers a dual function holder that allows for the use of fixed or floating inserts saving you the time of changing the holder when you change the style of insert. Inserts are available as semi-finished blanks, or can be precision machined to a specific finish. GLASSMATE dead plate assemblies combine the strength of a metal support plate with the container compatible surface of a GLASSMATE insert. POCO’s lehr stacker bars are available to meet all of your container-handling needs in open, semi-closed, or closed lehr applications. The pocketed design of interlocking pads, coupled with steel mounting channels, create a bar that resists warping and is extremely durable. Application specialists can assist in the selection of the optimum graphite grade based on pickup, application, and length of the production run.
