glass types and their recommended uses offers the
is made from silica and boric oxide. Such glass is
highly resistant to chemical corrosion, temperature
change and thermal shock. It is especially well suited
for laboratory ware, such as test tubes, etc., domestic
cookware, high-powered lamps and other technical glass
ware. It is also used when glass must be bonded to
metal and low expansion is essential. Examples of
this glass include Pyrex No.7740 and Borofloat.
Coated Glass such as high quality
Borosilicate may be coated on one or both sides to
provide certain properties of application. Photo sensitive,
special infrared reflecting coatings, chromatography,
photo tropic, special light filtering and other coatings
are used industrially.
Float Glass has vitually plane and
parallel surfaces formed by floating a contnuous ribbon
of glass in a controlled atmosphere on the surface
of a bath of molten metal.
Glass-Ceramics are highly crystalline
ceramic formed by the heat treatment of glass ceramics
made by special glass processes. They are very strong,
transparent, resistant to heat, shock and are generally
castable. Ceramic Glass is the proper glass used in
wood burning stoves.
Laminated Glass consists of two or
more sheets of glass with one or more viscous plastic
layers "sandwiched" between the glass panes.
The solid joining of the glasses takes place in a
pressurized vessel called an autoclave. In the autoclave,
under simultaneous heating of the already processed
layers of glass and special plastic, lamination occurs.
When laminated safety glass breaks, the pieces remain
attached to the internal plastic layer and the glass
Pyrex Glass is the Corning Inc. trade
name for a heat-resistant borosilicate rolled glass.
Rolled Glass is a translucent glass
with 50 to 80% light transmission, depending on its
thickness and type of surface. It is used where transparency
of the glass is not important or desired.
is glass having a layer of meshed wire completely
embedded into the sheet in order to add strength.
