glass surface coating

glass surface coating

1. A coating applied to a glass surface, usually to tint the glass a desired color or to control the amount of solar radiation that is transmitted through the glass. The coating may be applied as the molten glass passes along a long continuous oven; alternatively, the coating may result from dipping the glass into a chemical solution, and then drying and firing it.
2. A metal coating evaporated on a surface while it is under a vacuum.
