Generally speaking, the color of tinted glass is the most important factor or colorant, in ordinary transparent glass added manganese dioxide glass will become purple; Add cobalt trioxide glass color will become purple; Adding ferrous oxide or potassium dichromate turns the glass green; Adding cadmium sulfide, antimony sulfide or iron oxide will fire yellow; Adding calcium fluoride, tin oxide will become milky white; Add gold trichloride, cuprous oxide will be fired into red, add ferric oxide, manganese dioxide, copper oxide. The mixture of carbon monoxide will chemically change into black glass.
Tinted glass belongs to special glass class, because of its advantages of heat absorption and cooling, it is a very good choice for some buildings in the high thermal environment in the south for a long time. Tinted glass is also suitable for some optical instruments. In particular, it is very necessary to install colored glass on private cars. With the progress of modern science and technology, the heat energy is gradually generated in colored glass. Of course, the application of these technologies in daily production and life needs further research.
When the tinted glass absorbs heat, its own temperature will also increase with the absorbed sunlight heat. When the heat reaches the zero boundary value of the glass, thermal expansion and cracking are easy to occur. At the same time, the aesthetics of the color of colored glass also determines its disadvantage of poor light transmission. When ordinary glass is installed in the living room, sunlight can effectively penetrate the glass and play a certain degree of sterilization and disinfection in the room. Moreover, studies have shown that the light color produced by tinted glass is not natural light color, which will have a certain degree of impact on human vision. Especially if there are young children at home, it is recommended not to use colored glass for home decoration.
