The production process of colored glazed glass consists of several steps. The first step is to make the glass plate. These tables are stored in the warehouse. Special suction devices are used to move them onto the main processing machine. They are then sent to the cutting head via a series of rollers and conveyor belts.
Adding metals, including copper and manganese, will produce a variety of colored glazed glass. Manganese, for example, removes the green tint caused by iron and produces amethyst colored glass. Selenium, on the other hand, can decolorize glass, producing a reddish hue. Cobalt produces blue glass when used in low concentrations. Other elements such as tin, antimony and arsenic produce opaque white glass. Finally, the copper oxide produces turquoise glass.
The glass is coated with epoxy resin. The glass is then cut and assembled into a unit using spacer bars. After this, the unit is transferred to the edge seal section where a warm edge sealant is applied. This will create an airtight double glazing unit. The finished product is then cleaned and inspected before passing through the unit production line.
Colored glazed glass is widely used in our daily life. We use it for water cups, jars, bottles and other objects with a glass surface. We also use it for all sorts of practical purposes, from microscope lenses to household cookware. There are many different types of glass. It is a versatile and useful material.
Glazed glass is tinted to improve its solar energy performance. Because the tone is uniform throughout the glass, it helps reduce the amount of heat transferred into the building. Different chemical colorants are added to the glass during melting, increasing its ability to absorb solar energy. Chemical colorants may include manganese and selenium, which produce pinks and purples.
