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 cover two questions devoted to the issues of improving the production of special coated and patterned glass. 1. How can you improve the continuous production of 8 mm Low-E triple-layer silver-coated glass. 2. Glass has a deep and inconsistent pattern. It always seems to break while moving through the primary quench or during the first 60 seconds while it is in the secondary quench cycle. How can you improve the issue?
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?
This latest #AskGlaston episode will answer three of your questions. 1. How to reduce breakage in the quenching section? 2. What is the lifetime of a tempering line? 3. How to eliminate hot spots from tempered glass?
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?
Energy savings in glass tempering process goes directly to your bottom line. Here’s how you can minimize your tempering process energy consumption. (Part 2/2)
White haze in tempered glass is a defect that needs to be corrected immediately. Read here what white haze is and how it can be removed.
Getting a tempering line up and running smoothly requires planning and cooperation between the buyer and supplier. Here we outline the 10 steps of a successful tempering line project.
Energy savings in your tempering process goes directly to your bottom line. How can you minimize your tempering line energy consumption? (Part 1/2)
One of the most burning topics in the glass industry is whether anisotropy is a defect or not? The industry is puzzled because of a lack of standardization. What can we do?
Markets demand increasingly more quality from glass suppliers. Sometimes, you can see weird strain patterns or rainbow-colored streaks in the glass, especially when viewed at a close angle and in polarized light. This is called glass iridescence. And here’s how to get rid of it.
Optical issues are becoming more critical as a topic in high-end facade projects. Optical defects are caused due to two main reasons: roller wave and edge kink. In this article, I will discuss about roller wave and how to improve it.
Since we are talking about safety, it is crucial that tempered glass is actually tempered when it is delivered to customers. Here’s a list of ways you can make sure you don’t need to recall your glasses.
