Float glass is a sheet of glass made by floating molten glass on a bed of molten metal, typically tin, although lead and various low melting point alloys were used in the past. This method gives the sheet uniform thickness and very flat surfaces. Modern windows are made from float glass. Most float glass is soda-lime glass, but relatively minor quantities of specialty borosilicate and flat panel display glass are also produced using the float glass process.
The float glass process is also known as the Pilkington process, named after the British glass manufacturer Pilkington, which pioneered the technique (invented by Sir Alastair Pilkington) in the 1950s.
Laminated glass is considered a safety glass and is primarily used because of its safety, security and sound abatement characteristics. Laminated glass is particularly suitable where it is useful to maintain the structural integrity of the piece in question after breakage. Adhering two or more pieces of glass together with a vinyl layer using heat and pressure produces laminated glass. In case of breakage, the PVB interlayer holds the fragments together and thus continues to provide resistance to the passage of persons or objects. The bond also holds the glass panes together and prevents shattering and production of sharp shards which is typical of glass breakage. Laminated glass is used in a variety of situations such as store fronts, balconies, skylights, and automotive glass. Here at Glassco we can custom cut laminated glass and use it for any situation deemed necessary. Do you need a glass table top but are worried about kids breaking the glass or worse yet cutting themselves? Maybe laminated glass is the answer to your problem.
Tempered glass is a type of safety glass regularly used in applications in which standard glass could pose a potential danger. Tempered glass is four to five times stronger than standard glass and does not break into sharp large pieces when it breaks. Tempered glass is manufactured through a process of extreme heating and rapid cooling, making it harder than normal glass.
Mirrors are used to increase the feeling of space and enhance interiors. A new generation mirror produced using an environmentally friendly process of exceptionally high quality and durability. This improved manufacturing process also improves the optical quality of the product and significantly increases its longevity through a better resistance to corrosion. Our Mirrors are available in 3mm and 5mm thicknesses and contain no lead or copper. The silver coating is applied to one side of the glass then sealed with a protective layer. This process significantly increases the durability of the product. Mirrors can be used as framed or un-framed mirrors, for paneling on walls and or doors and in furniture or shelves, particularly where there is need to compensate for light or space.
Protect the environment by choosing a mirrored product that is free from harmful metals.
