Why Double Glazing is Popular?

on .

A little different from the traditional windows that we generally have in homes, the double glazed windows are the ones with two panes of glass installed on every window. There is a minimum gap provided between the two panes helps to insulate noise, air or other pollution peeping in. This is more advantageous for colder countries, because they have the property of retaining the heat remaining the inner atmosphere, by preventing the external cold to enter inside.

Why Is Glass Transparent?

on .

We all take for granted the fact that glass is transparent. But stop and think about it for a second: how can something so bulky and solid be so easy to see through?

 

In fact, it might be better to ask not why glass is transparent, but why other materials not transparent—which is exactly what Mark Miodownik, the great material scientist and communicator, does in this video. As he explains, it's largely to do with the electron structures in the atoms that make up a material. If a photon of light is unable to provide the right amount of energy to an electron in a material to make it change state, then the photon simply passes through, unobstructed. And that's exactly the case for the photons passing through glass, hence its transparency: the light just pours through. But, hey, watch the video for a better—and fuller—explanation

Why Recycle Glass?

on .

Recycling glass is easy, and glass containers returned for recycling help to make new glass bottles and jars. Recycling glass has big environmental pay offs. It saves raw materials, lessens demand for energy, and cuts CO2 emissions.

Environmental Facts

Glass can be recycled endlessly with no loss in quality or purity. An estimated 80% of recovered glass containers are made into new glass bottles. In 2010, over 41% of glass beer and soft drink bottles were recycled, nearly 25% of wine and liquor bottles, and over 33% of all glass containers. In some states, like California, glass bottle recycling reaches over 80%.*

Unmatched Environmental Benefits

•Recycling glass containers provides for unmatched production efficiencies and significant environmental benefits:

•Saves raw materials — Over a ton of natural resources are conserved for every ton of glass recycled, including 1,300 pounds of sand, 410 pounds of soda ash, 380 pounds of limestone, and 160 pounds of feldspar.

•Lessens the demand for energy — Energy costs drop about 2-3% for every 10% cullet used in the manufacturing process.

•Cuts CO2 emissions — For every six tons of recycled container glass used, a ton of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, is reduced. A relative 10% increase in cullet reduces particulates by 8%, nitrogen oxide by 4%, and sulfur oxides by 10%.

•Extends furnace life — Including cullet in the manufacturing mix makes it less corrosive and lowers the melting temperature (from 2800 degrees F. to 2600 degrees F.), prolonging furnace life.

•No processing by-products — Glass recycling is a closed-loop system, creating no additional waste or by-products.

Safe and Light-Weight

Today’s glass containers are more than 40% lighter than they were 20 years ago. And light weighting efforts continue throughout the industry.

 

Glass packaging can handle vacuum or high-pressure sealing, safeguarding against moisture and oxygen invasions. This protects food and beverages from spoilage and bacteria.

 

Glass containers are impermeable, air-tight, and transparent. You can see the freshness of food and beverages.

 

Nontoxic and FDA Approved

Made from nontoxic raw materials—silica, sand, soda ash, limestone and up to 70% recycled glass—glass is the only packaging material certified by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration as “generally regarded as safe.”

 

Glass is nonporous and impermeable, so there are no interactions between glass packaging and products to affect the flavor of food and beverages. No nasty after taste—ever.

 

Glass has an almost zero rate of chemical interaction, ensuring that the products inside a glass bottle keep their strength, aroma, and flavor.

 

Glass can be specified to absorb damaging ultraviolet light, ensuring product purity and taste. In fact, glass has an inherently longer shelf life than any packaging material.

 

Glass does not deteriorate, corrode, stain or fade, so products inside a glass container remain as fresh as when they were bottled.

Will using tempered and/or laminated glass make my windows unbreakable?

on .

There are misconceptions that tempered and laminated glass are “unbreakable” or “nearly unbreakable”. This is not true. Both tempered and laminated glass are definitely breakable and many of the things that can break ordinary float glass can also break tempered glass. However, they are stronger than ordinary glass and do not break as easily. They do offer greater resistance in case of attempted break-in.
