This week, we’re dealing with questions regarding the technology of tempering 2 mm glass and the rainbow color shades on automotive side glasses:
- Today, there are solutions for tempering 2 mm glass with normal rollers. Why have you developed the air flotation system as your solution?
- We can see rainbow color shades in the sunlight on the side glasses of truck cabins. Is this acceptable or is it a defect that may cause breakage in the future?
For this week’s questions, see our full video response below!
As always, remember to learn, share and succeed!
Our 2 mm concept, GlastonAir, is based on air flotation technology that provides the best possible quality for 2 mm glass. The other option, of course, would be to do the tempering just with roller technology. With rollers, however, you have to overheat the glass so much that it will have a negative quality impact.
With color shading, we’re referring to anisotropy, also known as the iridescence pattern in the glass. This is not considered a defect. It happens with all heat-treated glasses. This phenomenon is usually seen on automotive glasses as well as on bigger facades. We have a lot of information available on this subject in Glastory. Please read more from the links below:
