ANNEALING, TEMPERING (INTRODUCTORY TRAINING)
The mechanical properties of glass are of vital importance for many applications. Bottles must withstand internal pressure; architectural and automotive glazing must break in a safe way; ovenware must endure brutal temperature shocks; plane windshields must resist high-speed collisions with birds. This training provides key information to understand the ways to improve the strength of glass products.
Contents of the introductory training:
- Glass composition (soda-lime, borosilicate, crystal) and atomic structure
- From structure to Young’s modulus and thermal expansion coefficient
- The key role of glass surface condition
- Thermal shock resistance
- Relaxing stress : annealing
- Tailoring stress : heat strengthening and tempering
- Special glasses and chemical tempering
