In order to meet the various needs in production and life, people carry out deep processing of ordinary flat glass. The main categories are:
1, Tempered glass. It is a kind of pre-stressed glass made of ordinary flat glass after reprocessing. Tempered glass has two major characteristics compared to ordinary flat glass:
(1) The strength of the former is several times that of the latter, the tensile strength is more than 3 times that of the latter, and the impact resistance is more than 5 times that of the latter.
(2) Tempered glass is not easily broken, and even if it is broken, it will be broken in the form of particles with no acute angles, and the damage to the human body will be greatly reduced.
2, Frosted glass. It is also re-sanded on plain flat glass. In general, the thickness is usually less than 90%, and most of the thickness is 5 or 6 centimeters.
3, Sandblasted glass. The performance is basically similar to that of frosted glass, and the different modified frost is sandblasting. Because the two are visually similar, many owners and even decoration professionals have confused them.
4, Embossed glass. It is a flat glass made by calendering. Its greatest feature is the opaque light transmission, and is often used in toilets and other decoration areas.
5, Wire glass. It is a kind of impact resistant plate glass made by inserting metal wire or metal mesh in glass plate by rolling method. When it is impacted, it will only form radial cracks and will not hurt people under armpits. Therefore, it is mostly used in high-rise buildings and factories with strong turbulence.
6, Hollow glass. The glue is used to keep the two pieces of glass at regular intervals. The space is dry air, and the surrounding area is sealed with a sealing material. It is mainly used in renovation projects that require sound insulation.
7, Laminated glass. Laminated glass is generally composed of two layers of ordinary flat glass (which can also be tempered glass or other special glass) and an organic glue layer between the glass. When damaged, the debris still adheres to the adhesive layer, avoiding damage to the human body caused by debris splashing. Mostly used for renovation projects with safety requirements.
8, Bullet-proof glass. In fact, it is a kind of laminated glass, but only glass with high strength is used to form the glass, and the number of sandwich layers is also relatively large. It is mostly used in renovation projects such as banks or luxury homes where safety requirements are very high.
9, Hot bending glass. The glass is heated and softened in a mold by a high-quality plate glass, and then annealed. The style is beautiful, the lines are smooth, and the frequency of appearance in some advanced decoration is getting higher and higher.
10, Glass bricks. Glass bricks are basically the same as flat glass. The difference is the molding method.
In the middle is dry air. It is mostly used for decorative items or light-transmitting shapes that require thermal insulation.
11, Cellophane. Also called glass film, with a variety of colors and designs. According to the different properties of the paper film, it has different properties. Most of the heat insulation, infrared rays, UV protection, explosion-proof and so on.
12, LED photoelectric glass. Photoelectric glass is a new type of environmental protection and energy-saving product. It is a combination of LED and glass. It has both the transparency of glass and the brightness of LED. It is mainly used for indoor and outdoor decoration and advertising.
13,Dimming glass: The glass is transparent in nature when powered by electricity, opaque when it is powered off, and can be used as a rear projection screen when it is not transparent.
14,Energy-saving glass: Insulating glass, vacuum glass, low-emissivity glass, coating low-e glass, nano-coated glass, heat-insulating glass, etc.
