Who here has watched glass being made?


Recommended Posts

well one thing really cool about glass(which most of yall probly already know) is that its a super cooled liquid. Which means its NOT solid. Its constantly moving and changin...just at a REEEAALLY slow pace. Thats why u see distortion on original glass in really old buildings and houses. If you actually took the pane out and slapped a micrometer or other measuring tool on it you could see that the bottom is thicker, due to saggin.

....Just one of the very few things I learned in community college... :lol:lol

We have a big Pilkington factory in our city for flat glass, a toughening plant around the corner from moi and another Pilkington automotive glass manufacturing facility about an hour away.

I believe they do conductive tours.

Recently a lot of Ford glass was lost offshore to a Chinese manufacturer because it was cheap. Caused quite a lot of unemployment here in this field.

That can be said of MANY products.

Environmental regulations have made it impossible for us to produce anything. China has no such regulations and plently of slave labor.

Every time we buy Chinese goods we are supporting slavery and the destruction of our own economy and country. Menawhile our politicians take money from Chinese lobyists and make inventments in China. Those that are supposed to represent us are selling us out. Menawhile we fly Chinese made plastic American flags and Chinese made "support the troops" stickers and think we are being patriotic.

Stick a fork in us, this country is done.

:nope I wouldn't want to see it.

Ask the glass guy down the street if they know tin side / air side of glass... many look at you with :lol

Talked with a Pilkington tech once about the subject of tin side/ air side... very interesting indeed.

My theory has been that there is a difference in film's adhesive bond depending upon which side of the glass it has been installed on. :lol2 Lab coats say it isn't a factor. :nope
