Questions about glass and its applications


Questions about glass, glazing and  applications of glass in exterior and interior.

Aluminum Coated Glass vs Silver Coated Glass

An aluminium glass mirror is made of a float glass manufactured using vacuum coating, i.e. aluminium powder is evaporated (or "sputtered") onto the exposed surface of the glass in a vacuum chamber and then coated with two or more layers of waterproof protective paint.

Water Standards for double silver or triple silver Low -E glass

What are the standards for the water used in double silver or triple silver Low -E glass in washing machine?

What are optimum ph Level, TDS , conductivity of water used in washing machine?

How to maintain  the PH level and Tds of water?

Sputter Deposition for Glass coating

Sputter Deposition In which a glow plasma discharge, usually localized around the “target” by a magnet, bombards the material sputtering some away as a vapour for subsequent deposition.

PVD Coatings are made for a specific set of properties high wear resistance, high oxidation resistance, low friction, high hardness at high working temperature, adhesion, scratch resistance and better surface finish in precise colour.

Toughened glass

I am wondering if panels have a chip in an edge or corner, at what size do they present a risk of breakage? From what I have read,the compression and tension layers increase as glass thickness increases. If a panel shows damage and it did not break, I read the chip did not penetrate the tension zone. Is it therefore unlikely to break? What is the expected damage size measured along the edge and face in say a panel of 6mm compared to 19mm of a chip that is likely to fail?

Thank you.

Applications Of Refractory Material In Float Glass Furnaces

Float glass furnaces are used to make flat toughened glass which is widely used in the fields of architecture, decoration, furniture, electronic apparatus, vehicles, ships, aviation, and more. Float glass furnaces consist of three main parts, the melter, refiner and regenerators or checkers.
