GLASS COLORATION AND COLOR TRANSITION (INTRODUCTORY TRAINING)
In addition to its aesthetic purpose, glass coloration plays an important role. In packaging, color contributes to the protection of food and beverages against UV radiation. The coloration of building and automotive glazing filters IR radiation and reduces the need for air conditioning.
During this course, we will review the physics and chemistry at play in glass coloration, illustrated by industrial examples. Switching from one color to another is a complex transition that must be performed quickly without damaging production, while generating as few losses and defects as possible. Ideal transitions will be presented as well as operational limits and key parameters that must be monitored during color transitions.
