Definitions of Glass
The most basic form of flat glass. It is sometimes called annealed glass and float glass because of the methods used to make it. In order to become safety-rated glass, more steps must be performed with it to transform it into safety glass.Tinted Glass:
Color that is formulated into the glass mixture during manufacturing that permanently alters the final color of plate glass. There are standard tint shades such as gray, bronze, blue and green.Laminated Glass:
This is glass made from two (or more) pieces of plate glass and a plastic (PVB) layer between them. The purpose of laminated glass is safety and security. If laminated glass breaks, the glass panel remains intact, instead of falling apart. The most common use of laminated glass is in automobile windshields. Laminated glass is readily available. Tinting of laminated glass can be achieved by tinting the inner layer (PVB) instead of the glass itself.
This glass starts as regular plate glass, and after it is cut to size and fabrications such as holes and edgework are completed, it is placed into a tempering oven. During this process the glass is heated to about 2,500 °F. It is then quickly "quenched" to about 2,000 °F. This process creates surface tension on the glass, making the surface up to four times stronger than it was as regular plate glass.
This is glass that has a coating on the surface to create a reflection on the uncoated side. A regular piece of plate glass receives a polishing one the coated side to remove any subtle imperfections prior to being coated. Silvering is the most commonly used method of production. Real silver is used to coat the glass during this process. To prevent the silver from tarnishing (oxidizing) a layer of copper is applied behind the silver. To prevent scratching, a layer of scratch resistant paint is applied. Resilvering of mirrors is an environmental nightmare and is uncommon today.Antiqued Mirrors:
This glass starts out as regular mirrored glass. The scratch resistant paint is chemically removed. Then the silvering is oxidized prematurely by applying another chemical to it. This process is very dangerous and should never be attempted without proper training on handling caustic chemicals and the necessary eye protection and gas-masks. Once a desired level of "antiquing" is achieved, the silver is recoated with paint.
Insulated glass is also called thermal—pane glass. This is used to reduce the costs of heating and cooling buildings. Two panes of glass are separated by air or inert gas to create a barrier that resists the transfer of heat from outside to inside or vice-versa. At the perimeter of these units of glass is a spacer (usually metal) that keeps the glass apart, and acts to seal the unit from moisture build-up. Eventually, the seal on these units deteriorates and allows moisture to enter the air-space. Over time this may develop into a hazy, or fogged condition. If this occurs, the only way to resolve the problem is to replace the unit entirely (both panes).Fire-Rated Glass:
This type of glass is used in situations of construction where a door or window in a fire-rated wall is required by an owner or architect. These are typically expensive when compared to non-rated glass. There are maximum sizes to be considered when specifying such glass. Also, how much fire-rated glass will be allowed in a particular span of wall must be calculated as well. Further complicating matters is the additional requirement of safety-rating such as in doors or sidelites. Consulting our specialist will save a lot of time and patience. Fire-rated glass is available in two forms. Wire-glass is the earliest version, but is quickly becoming obsolete. Ceramic glass is now becoming more and more popular, but is somewhat costly.
