About:

Glass refers to a non-crystalline, mostly transparent amorphous solid, which has wide applications in technological, practical, and decorative areas. It is used in windowpanes, lamps, automobiles, tableware, and optics. It transmits, reflects and refracts light and these properties of Glass can further be enhanced by cutting and polishing to make optical lenses, prisms, etc. Glass is usually formed by rapid cooling (quenching) of the molten form; but some glasses such as volcanic glass occur naturally.

Industrial Uses

  • Architectural glass and windows 
  • Automotive parts
  • Glass art
  • Optics
  • lens

Production Process

  • Production of Glass via Float Glass Process; and via Glassblowing Process

Glass is basically produced using two primary processes, that is, the float glass process, which is generally utilised to produce sheet glass, and the glassblowing process which is typically utilised to produce bottles and other containers. Once the desired form of glass is produced, it is generally annealed to remove stresses and enhance its hardness and durability, followed by surface treatments, coatings or lamination to improve the chemical durability and finishing.
