Types And Characteristics Of Different Glass
In our daily life, we often come into contact with various types of glass materials, which are also used in our kiosks. In addition to the traditional flat glass and toughened glass, there are super white glass, hot bending glass and other glass materials with special properties, as well as frosted glass, laminated glass and other commonly used materials. In order to let people further understand the types and characteristics of glass, we collect data to write this article, hoping can be helpful.
First, the division of glass types and the characteristics of all kinds of glass.
Tempered glass is ordinary flat glass after reprocessing into reinforced glass. Tempered glass compared with ordinary flat glass, has the following characteristic:
What is the characteristic of tempered glass?
When the glass is damaged by external forces, the fragments will become small particles of obtuse angle similar to honeycomb, which is not easy to cause serious injury to the human body.
- High strength
The impact strength of a tempered glass of the same thickness is 3 ~ 5 times that of ordinary glass, and the bending strength is 3 ~ 5 times that of ordinary glass.
- Thermal stability
Toughened glass has good thermal stability, can withstand a temperature difference is 3 times that of ordinary glass, can withstand a temperature difference of 300℃.
What is the advantage and disadvantage of tempered glass?
The first is several times stronger than ordinary glass, bending resistance.
The second is more safety, its carrying capacity increased improved brittle sex qualitative, although tempered glass is broken also show the small fragment without acute angle. The harm to human body was reduced greatly.
The properties of toughened glass are 3~5 times higher than that of ordinary glass. Generally, it can withstand the temperature difference of more than 250 degrees, which has obvious effect on preventing hot cracking. It’s a type of safety glass.
Tempered glass can no longer be cut, and processing, can only be processed before the tempered glass to the required shape, and then tempered.
Although the strength of toughened glass is stronger than ordinary glass, the toughened glass has the possibility of self-explosion (its own rupture), and the possibility of self-explosion does not exist in ordinary glass.
It is also in the ordinary flat glass above the grinding process. Due to ground glass surface roughness diffuse light, pervious to light without perspective. The light is reflected through the ground glass in all directions after shot out in (because of ground glass surface is not smooth and flat, make the light produces a diffuse reflection), refraction to the retina is incomplete, so can’t see behind the glass. It can make indoor light soft without harsh.
The advantage of frosted glass
- Good sound insulation effect:
In producing insulation glass, frosted glass can be used to make, because the ground glass have good sound insulation effect, if use frosted glass insulation glass, produces glass sound insulation effect is very good, in the production of sound insulation glass, also often used to grind arenaceous glass to produce sound insulation glass, but with more glass is produced, The frosted glass has been replaced by other products.
- High degree of safety:
Frosted glass is a kind of safety glass, which is very safe to use and ensures personal safety. Belongs to fragile glass, in the role of a force, the glass is easily broken, use rise very unsafe, and glass damage, also increase the cost of the user, but with frosted glass, not only good to solve the security problem, and the price is relatively low, also use the time is long.
- Protect privacy:
Frosted glass looks from the surface, can not see the indoor situation, give a person a very vague feeling, very good to ensure the privacy of the room. Although it looks very fuzzy from the surface, from the inside out, it is very clear, and will not affect the lighting, indoor lighting is also very good.
Ultra clear glass
Ultra clear glass is a kind of transparent low iron glass, also known as low iron glass, high transparent glass. It is a kind of high quality, multifunctional new high-grade glass varieties, the light transmittance can reach more than 91.5%, with crystal clear, high-grade and elegant characteristics.
- The self-explosion rate of glass is low.
Because the raw materials of ultra-white glass generally contain less impurities such as NiS, the fine control in the melting process of raw materials makes ultra-white glass have more uniform composition and less internal impurities than ordinary glass, which greatly reduces the possibility of self-explosion after toughening.
- Color consistency.
Because the iron content in the raw material is only 1/10 or even lower than that of ordinary glass, ultra-white glass absorbs less green and magenta bands in visible light than ordinary glass, which ensures the consistency of glass color.
- High transmittance of visible light and good permeability
6mm thick glass has a visible light transmittance of more than 91%. It has a crystal quality, which makes the exhibits more clear and highlights the true original appearance of the exhibits.
Hot bending glass
In order to meet the high quality demand of modern architecture, hot bending glass is a curved glass made of high quality glass softened by heating bending, formed in the mold, and then annealed. Beautiful style, smooth lines. It breaks through the monotony of flat glass and is more flexible and diverse in use.
