Different types of glasses

  1. 1. DIFFERENT TYPES OF GLASSES There are 12 different types of glasses mainly used in construction Laminated Glass Toughened Glass Fusion Glass Mirrors Etched Glass Float Glass Stained Glass Beveled Glass Figured Glass Cast Glass Frameless Doors Tinted Glass
  2. 2. Laminated Glass .Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. .In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), between its two or more layers of glass. .The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. .This produces a characteristic "spider web" cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass.

  4. 4. Toughened Glass Toughened or tempered glass is glass that has been processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments. It has increased strength compared with normal glass and will usually shatter into small fragments, rather than sharp shards, when broken. Tempered glass is strong, has enhanced thermal resistance, and breaks into small cuboid fragments rather than irregular shards of glass and therefore is less likely to cause injury.
  5. 5. Toughened Glass
  6. 6. Fusion Glass Fused glass is a term used to describe glass that has been fired (heat-processed) in a kiln at a range of high temperatures from 593º C (1100ºF) to 816º C (1500ºF). There are 3 main distinctions for temperature application and the resulting effect on the glass. Fused glass consists mainly of silica. While the precise origins of glass fusing techniques are not known with certainty
  7. 7. Fusion Glass
  8. 8. Mirrors A mirror is an object with a surface that has good specular reflection; that is, it is smooth enough to form an image. The most familiar type of mirror is the plane mirror, which has a flat surface. Curved mirrors are also used, to produce magnified or demagnified images or focus light or simply distort the reflected image.Mirrors are most commonly used for personal grooming, decoration, and architecture. Mirrors are also used in scientific apparatus such as telescopes and lasers, cameras, and industrial machinery.

  10. 10. Etched Glass Attend your meetings with this exclusive Etched Glasss. Etching refers to the technique of creating art on the surface of glass by applying acidic, caustic, or abrasive substances. Glass with excellent finish to match your interiors.
  11. 11. Float Glass Float glass is a sheet of glass made by floating molten glass on a bed of molten tin. 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.
  12. 12. Stained Glass As a material the term stained glass generally refers to glass that has been coloured by adding metallic salts during its manufacture. The coloured glass is crafted into stained glass windows in which small pieces of glass are arranged to form patterns or pictures, held together (traditionally) by strips of lead and supported by a rigid frame. Painted details and yellow stain are often used to enhance the design. The term stained glass is also applied to windows in which all the colours have been painted onto the glass and then annealed in a furnace.
  13. 13. Stained Glass
  14. 14. Beveled Glass Beveled glass is usually made by taking one-quarter inch-thick clear glass and creating a one-inch bevel on one side around the entire periphery. These bevels act as prisms in the sunlight creating an interesting color diffraction which both highlights the glasswork and provides a spectrum of colors which would ordinarily be absent in clear float glass. "Beveled glass" can be obtained as clusters which are arranged to create a specific design. These can vary from simple three or four piece designs.
  15. 15. Beveled Glass
  16. 16. Figured Glass We are figured glass dealers in India. We deal both clear and colored figured glass from 3mm to 4mm, in more than 40 different patterns, including: flora, kasumi, mistlite, Pin Head, Reeded, Yozura, Konoha, Karatachi etc. Our quality is one of the best in Andhra Pradesh, our price is also very competitive.
  17. 17. Cast Glass Casting is a manufacturing process by which a liquid material is (usually) poured into a mold, which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, and then allowed to solidify. The solid casting is then ejected or broken out to complete the process. Casting may be used to form hot liquid metals or various materials that cold set after mixing of components (such as epoxies, concrete, plaster and clay). Casting is most often used for making complex shapes that would be otherwise difficult or uneconomical to make by other methods.
  18. 18. Cast Glass
  19. 19. Frameless Doors The frameless doors include bypass, framed, frameless, and heavy glass door units. Standard units can be customized with side panels or return panels as well as custom sizes.
  20. 20. Tinted Glass Goutam Glass Incorporation can supply a full range of tinted float glass, including colors of dark blue, lake blue, ocean blue, French green, dark green, dark grey, bronze, and pink.
