Guidelines for the Production of Heat-Treated Architectural Flat Glass (FB52-17) - Downloadable Out of Stock
Guidelines for producing heat-treated architectural glass
Heat-treated glass is used in many of today's architectural glazing applications where increased strength to resist glass breakage is desired. The process of heat-treating glass involves uniformly heating glass close to its softening temperature and then rapidly, and uniformly, cooling it. This Paper gives guidelines for producing heat-treated glass. Guidelines should be regarded as a general starting point, but for more detail consult your vendors and equipment manufacturers.
