Glass Types

This glass has a slight texture to both surfaces which reduces reflection . The glass appears transparent when placed less than 12mm from the object to be viewed.

Clear annealed glass (also known as float glass)
This is the most commonly used type of glass found in windows. It is readily available, relatively low cost and easily cut to size. British standard 952 defines clear float glass as being transparent glass, the surface of which are flat and parallel, so that they provide clear undistorted vision and reflection.

Produced by subjecting annealed glass to a heating and rapid cooling process. This process greatly increases its ability to resist external forces such as mechanical loading and thermal shock. In general a toughened glass will withstand a load in excess of five times greater than a similar untreated glass and therefore can tolerate a much greater degree of deflection & twisting. It will resist sudden temperature changes and can withstand a temperature of 250 degrees C. If toughened glass is hit with a sharp pointed object it will disintegrate into comparatively harmless granular particles. Toughened glass is more prone to susceptible to spontaneous breakage than annealed or heat strengthened glass. Spontaneous breakage can result from impact damage, weld splatter, windblown debris and internal inclusion of Nickel sulphate.

Heat soaking is an additional heating process to detect and reject any toughened glass where nickel sulphate inclusion may be present. This process involves heating the glass and then slowly cooling, any glass that has nickel sulphate inclusions will break in the kiln under this process. The treated glass has slightly different properties to toughened. On breakage, clusters of the toughened particles will often clump together to form larger sections.

Toughened glass must to be cut or worked. This can seriously affect its properties and is likely to result in breakage. All drilling, notching, cutting, etc. must be carried out before being toughened. There are also limitations to the location of notches, drill holes and cut outs in toughened glass.

The nature of the toughened process makes it difficult to produce toughened glass as consistently flat as annealed glass. Roller wave & roller pick up are just some of the common visual imperfections that will be found.

Moulded bullions can be manufactured from clear or patterned glass in thickness’s of 3mm – 6mm. They are manufactured by cutting a single pane of flat glass and heating this over a mould in a furnace, until the glass resembles the shape of the mould.

Traditional bullions or roundels are formed from blowing and spinning a piece of glass to the desired size, they are supplied in the round and cut to size.
