CRACKED GLASS *:
Composed of an inner layer of tempered glass and two external layers of common glass and two resin blades. It presents texture composed by an infinity of cracks that diffuse the luminosity of the environment.
CURVED GLASS *:
Molded to high temperature, in forms that are inside the furnace of curvature and cooled. Applied in the automotive, white goods, furniture and civil construction industries.
DOUBLE GLASS*:
Also known as insulated, glass is a set of two or more glass sheets interspersed with a dehydrated air chamber or carbon dioxide. It may also contain an internal blind.
GLASS EXTRA CLEAR *:
Lighter and more transparent than the standard because its mass contains less iron addition.
FANTASY GLASS *:
See printed glass.
GLASS FLOAT *:
Flat, plain, smooth and transparent glass with uniform thickness and homogeneous mass. It is the raw material that gives rise to other types of glass.
FROSTED GLASS*:
See blasted glass.
PHOTOVOLTAIC GLASS *:
Allows absorption of solar radiation and converts this energy into electricity.
PRINTED GLASS *:
It is a translucent glass that receives on one or both faces, the impression of a drawing (pattern) or print.
INSULATED GLASS *:
See double glass.
ETCHED GLASS*:
Sand or post-abrasive jets form opaque designs on the surface of the glass. Opacity guarantees privacy to the environment.
LAMINATED GLASS*:
Safety glass. It consists of two or more glass plates, interspersed with a polyvinyl butyral (PVB) film or resin. If it breaks, the shards of glass are retained in the layer of PVB or resin, avoiding accidents.
LAPIDED GLASS *:
Glass with smooth and non-sharp edges, obtained after the lapidation process. Can be used on table tops, furniture, shelves etc. See stoning. Low-e glass (low emissivity glass): It is a low emissive glass that prevents thermal transparency between two environments.
GLASS METALLIZED GLASS *:
The vacuum reflective glass is a product developed for, through the control of heat input in the environment, provide greater comfort and economy to the user.
MONOLITHIC GLASS *:
Simple glass composed of a single blade.
MULTILAMINED GLASS *:
Composed of more than two glass sheets intercalated by one or more layers of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or resin. Commercially called anti-vandalism and armored panes are multi-glazed windows. Indicated for banks, showcases of luxury shops, safe cabins, vehicles.
GLASS FOR POOL AND AQUARIUM *:
They are designed to withstand hydrostatic pressure. The display manufacturers have a technical department that guides the calculation of the thicknesses to be used in each case. The glass to be used must be laminated.
GLAZING PANEL *:
Prevents the spread of fire, but allows the heat to pass into another environment. See fire resistant glass.
COLD PAINTED GLASS *:
Especially recommended for indoor environments, cold paint is made with a kind of pistol (compressor).
GLASS PAINTED TO HOT *:
See fingerprint glass.
PYROLITHIC GLASS *:
See reflective glass.
RECOIDED GLASS *:
It is float or printed without any kind of transformation. We can speak of annealing because the process by which it passes to relieve the processing stresses at the end of its manufacture is called annealing.
REFLECTIVE GLASS *:
Popularly called a mirror, it is a glass for solar control that stands out due to the resistance of its metallic layer and its high light transmission.
BALANCE-RESISTANT GLASS *:
See armored glass.
RESISTANT TO RISK GLASS *:
It has a transparent and permanent protective layer - resistant to mechanical and abrasive action - incorporated into one of its faces.
ANTIRREFLEX GLASS *:
Contains microtextures printed on one of its faces, giving the glass the ability to eliminate luminous reflections.
FIRE-RESISTANT GLASS *:
Without metallic mesh, laminated glass is composed of several laminae interspersed with transparent chemical material that melts and expands in case of fire.
DIGITAL PRINT GLASS *:
Colored, the glass is impregnated with paint in the oven. Blown glass * (hollow): A process in which a glass ball is harvested at the end of a steel tube - the cane - and, with the mouth, it is blown on the ball until the desired shape appears.
TEMPERED GLASS*:
Considered safety glass. A thermal shock in manufacturing makes it five times stronger than ordinary. If it breaks, it produces small, non-sharp pieces.
GLASS-CUBES *:
Glass vats are being used a lot in the decoration of toilets and toilets of high standard.
STAINLESS STEEL *:
Cold handicraft technique for the manufacture of artistic glass. There are two processes: lead and copper tape. It consists of embedding pieces of glass in lead profile or wrapping the glass with the copper tape and welding them together.
RESIN*:
Material used to laminate glass. It offers a wide variety of colors and can be applied in float and printed glass. Pulleys: Component used in window or sliding door in order to provide the opening and closing movement, installed in the lower or upper transom.
GLASS SKIN*:
Facade system. First, the columns are installed. Then apply the aluminum frames and glasses.
PVB (POLYVINYL BUTIRAL) *:
One of the raw materials used in the manufacture of laminated glass. It is a plastic and elastic film applied between the sheets of glass. In the event of a break, the glass shards become attached to the PVB, thus reducing the risk of injury. Available in several colors.
LAPIDITATION *:
It is the treatment that the glass receives at the edges, avoiding possible injuries and giving a certain dose of resistance to the glass. It is also the lapidation that guarantees a differentiated aspect to the final product.
GLAZING *:
It is the type of facade in which glass glued with structural silicone in special frames. Then, from the outside of the environment, what you see are just the glasses without the interference of frames.
CURVATURE OVEN *:
Equipment capable of producing curved glass. A float plate is introduced into the oven on a mold. This glass is heated to take the shape of the mold and is then cooled.
TAMPER OVEN *:
It is in this machine that tempered glass is produced. In the simplest equipment, the glass is worked vertically. Horizontal ovens are more sophisticated and have higher production capacity.
FUSING *:
Hot handmade technique (low temperature). It consists of shaping the glass by acquiring all the details of the mold. Mirror: A surface capable of reflecting the light on it reflecting the image of what is in front of it.
