annealed glass

annealed glass

Glass created by a process that moves it, in a molten form, along a long oven where it is heated and then slowly cooled under controlled conditions, emerging as a flat, “fire polished” glass product.

Annealed glass exterior with 10,000 glass panels that have been cooled slowly to reduce internal stress forms the outer part of the building.
The skyscraper boasts an annealed glass exterior with 10,000 glass panels that have been cooled slowly to reduce internal stress, meaning the glass shouldn't break into shards if it is struck.
It neither split into large sharp pieces like the annealed glass nor into small round pieces like the tempered glass.
The lamp has no ballast, which reduces lamp weight, an impact resistant tube shield with specially designed annealed glass and an aluminum hook for easy overhead mounting.
Inspired by the softly swaying dune grasses by the seaside, the Sea Grass Table is made with handgathered stones smoothed by the ocean, solid aluminum rods, natural granite and an annealed glass top.
Standard single plies of annealed glass and GGfA chemically treated glass were subjected to the manual cleaning method with the dust on the surface, and then this cleaned surface was evaluated in ring-on-ring loading to determine retained strengths and failure loads.
In this case, Thai-Tang says that the weight reduction provided by the hybrid glass structure is going to be on the order of 30%, or 12 lb., compared with conventional annealed glass laminate.
The GT's windshield is coupled with Corning's alkali-aluminosilicate glass with a thermoplastic layer and another panel of traditional annealed glass. The three-layered panel is 32 percent lighter and 25-50 percent thinner than a typical windshield.
Smaller, simpler buildings can cover two-thirds of the vents with annealed glass and leave the rest open, which will cost roughly $500 to $2,000 and can be installed in-house.
We ordered from a glass tempering factory 12 glass panels of 100 mm X 300 mm X 6 mm with different degree of tempering, with surface stress [[sigma].sub.s] from zero (annealed glass) up to 120 MPa.
This behavior is expected for short aging times when the poorly annealed glass displays what is called an upper peak during the heating scan, which remains invariant on annealing, as theoretically shown by Ramos et al.
The expected variation within a single float source is in the range of [+ or -] 0.00004 for annealed glass and [+ or -] 0.00016 for tempered glass (Locke 1985).
