Glass breakage in the tempering furnace is something that we all want to avoid. In this #AskGlaston episode, we are looking at the factors that can lead to the breakage of thick glass in a radiation furnace. The other question refers to the difference of heat-strengthened and tempered glass.
This latest #AskGlaston episode will answer two of your questions. 1. How to eliminate the rainbow effect and white smoke spots? 2. How to obtain consistent results from your tempering line?
From time to time, I get a question from the glass structural engineers about specification advice on glass quality for high-profile facades. How they can make sure they will get the best possible or most suitable glass quality for their project? Many times, the question is: what is the best I can realistically get from the market?
#AskGlaston Episode 3: How to temper Low-E glass with older tempering technology?
This is our second episode of #AskGlaston. Today, we’ll cover an interesting topic that glass users and processors question from time to time. Which has the best quality: tempered or heat-strengthened?
Energy savings in your tempering process goes directly to your bottom line. How can you minimize your tempering line energy consumption? (Part 1/2)
