Iridescence Patterns in Heat-Treated Architectural Glass - Downloadable Out of Stock
Iridescence may be visible in heat-strengthened and tempered glass
As a result of heat-treating glass, optical distortions may arise from out-of-plane deformations of the glass surface. Currently, there are no industry-wide standards that specify acceptable values for these optical distortions; however, there are existing methods/instruments to measure them. The methods/instruments referenced in this document are designed and intended for in-plant use only. These methods for measuring distortion cannot be applied in the field on vertical glazing and cannot be used on insulating glass units. This document was republished in August 2017.
