Float glass is manufactured by ginde glass from china. Float glass is an inorganic product, with no bubbles, streaks or other imperfections and ideal for use in windows and doors. Float glass can be tempered, driling, cutting, and so on.
Clear float glass is produced by the float process, combining silica sand, soda, lime, potash and alkaline salts. Molten glass is poured continuously from a furnace onto a large bed of molten tin. It floats on the tin, spreading out and seeking a controlled level in the same manner as water poured onto a smooth, flat surface. Thickness is controlled by the speed at which the solidifying glass ribbon is drawn off the bath.
Float glass is the most widely used form of glass today. The float glass process is the most common method of flat glass production in the world. This process basically involves melting silicate (sand), lime and soda in a furnace and floating it onto a large bed of molten tin, hence th
e name float glass. This mixture slowly solidifies over the molten tin as it enters the annealing oven where it travels along rollers under a controlled cooling process. The thickness is determined by the speed at which the solidifying glass is taken off the bath. From this point the glass emerges in one continuous ribbon and is then cut and further processed to customers’ needs. Float glass is an inorganic product, with no bubbles, streaks or other imperfections and ideal for use in windows and doors.
