Once again, over 500 glass professionals gathered in Tampere, Finland, to celebrate glass. After many workshops and excellent presentations, I am excited to see the ambition level of glass industry professionals on the rise once again. If nothing else, the Glass Performance Days reminds us that glass is a material that can truly do it all.
And as a brief reminder, I compiled five design trends that caught my attention.
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?
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.
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.
