1. 1. What is hardened glass?
Hardened glass is a building material which is increasingly used in modern housing. The durability of hardened glass is up to five times higher than that of ordinary glass. Hardened glass is formed after the processing normal glass with high temperatures and then quickly cooling it down. After the operation it is also called safety glass. When the glass breaks it falls apart into tiny pieces of blunt glass.
2. Types hardened glass for decoration:
– Hardened glass, just in different colors
– Translucent type float, diamond highest quality glass, brown, green, gray, milk (satin or sandblasted)
– Hardened glass, enamel only – from the RAL color palette
– Hardened glass, just type fussing – artistic glass
– Hardened glass, thermally insulated glass in different thicknesses depending on the reasons for the disappearance of the heat
– Decorated glass with decorations and various graphic elements
– Hardened glass, layered in different colors
3. What are the characteristics of SGG PRIVA-LITE ??
This is a glass with varying opacity. You get privacy when desired! SGG PRIVA-LITE is made extra white glass in combination with liquid crystals. Under the influence of electric fields (100V / 50Hz) the crystals add together in an orderly pattern which makes the glass completely transparent. If the electric flow is removed from the SGG PRIVA-LITE glass then the glass is frosted and opaque. In this way you can control the transparency. In addition, in the case of a matt, opaque surface, the glass is very suitable to be used as a projection screen. It is also possible to provide graphical elements and /or the logo of the company on the inside of the glass.
4. How is hardened glass made?
The process of hardening of glass consist of the heating of the glass to very high temperatures in order to cool it down extremely fast afterwards. By doing the glass wins durability.
5. Characteristics of the glass FLOAT:
Manufacture of this glass comprises of pouring the molten glass on a surface covered with liquid tin, and then subjecting it to additional treatment with fire. This creates an ideal smooth surface. This glass can be in thicknesses of 2 to 19 mm produced.
Glass suitable for use in the construction industry is typically available in thicknesses of 3 to 12mm. The opacity is dependent on the thickness and the content of iron oxide in the glass. Glass with a low content of iron oxide is also called colorless or extra white.
The added value of this glass is not only its functionality but Also its aesthetic value. FLOAT glass is the basis for toughened glass (ESG), laminated (VSG), decorative glass and mirrors.
– Glass doors
– Glass furniture (tables, shelves) sheets,
– Windows, shower cabins
6. Features laminated glass VSG:
It consists of two or more parts of glass, of which the entire surface being bonded together with PVB fiml.
Laminated glass remains during breaking in one piece, because the film prevents disintegration of the glass into smaller pieces.
With the aim to increase durability of the laminated glass the following glass types are used next to FLOAT is also hardened glass type ESG used. Laminated glass is suitable for further crafting, conversion of angles, drilling holes etc.
– Glass canopies
– Glass balustrades
– Glass floors
– Protection in the event of accidents
– Protection against vandalism
– Protection of persons in the event of failure of the window
– The possibility of production of glass on which safely can be walked
7. How is laminated glass characterized?
Laminated glass is characterized in the following way: xy.z
x and y – the thickness of the parts that have been used to indicate the construction of the glass
z – indicates the number of layers of PVB film between the parts (the thickness of one film is 0.38mm)
For example: 66.4 means: two glass parts with thickness 6 mm and 4 layers of PVB film
