From floatglass to mirror
Through melting sand (73%), chalk (9%), soda (13%) and magnesium (4%), at a temperature of app. 1500°C, the result is a glowing, liquid glass.
- In its purest form, it flows slowly in the forge on a layer of liquid tin. Purified from any contamination, it slowly thickens into floatglass, the basis for all special glass products.
- TEMPERED GLASS also originates from floatglass. Tempering takes place via a specific thermal treatment of the base product, making it five times as strong as non-tempered glass of the same gauge. It is also much more resistant to temperature change than conventional glass. Moreover, in case of breakage, it fractures into many small particles with blunt edges.
- Because of these special protective and safety properties, it is frequently used in the transport and building sectors. Pre-treatment such as silk screening, bending, holes, notches and treatment of edges could further increase the functionality of the glass.
- LAMINATED GLASS consists of two or more layers of glass separated by plastic interlayer(PVB). The ultimate connection between interlayer and glass takes place in an autoclave, under high pressure and high temperature. The interlayer ensures that, in case of breakage, the pieces of glass will continue to adhere to this interlayer. This provides a package of essential properties, including a reduction in the danger of injuries from glass fragments, therefore ensuring safety.
Mirrors are made of float glass.
Mirror production has seen the process grow from air spray techniques with poor application controls to high-speed curtain coating systems with precision control of the applied paint film. Likewise, today?s airless spray systems have high efficiency, improved chemical knowledge and proper engineering that allowed the industry to control and monitor the deposition rates of silver and copper films.
