Glass Processing

The point in the recipe glass "mixture" and the appearance of modern tools for glass processing. Glass for critical applications are now receiving from supercooled melt, and depending on the purpose for which it is manufactured, used a variety of "ingredients" – oxides and fluorides of various metals that give different qualities of glass. For example, soda glass different "soft" and easily handled. Often found and is used in glazing because of its perfect transparency. If you have a home stand, wooden frame with no glass, it is likely they applied it is glass.

Glass on such and such a formulation most widely distributed. But there is much more complex types of glass, for example – the uranium glass which is painted in a mass at the expense of uranium compounds. The color of these glasses is dark green. It is obvious that the uranium – is not the cheapest material, but processing of the glass does not require much effort. In general, a modern glass processing technology can do miracles. Perhaps almost all of that while working with a less fragile and less solid materials – milling, drilling, sawing glass of any shape, any type of engraving, etc. Modern tools allow you to receive such articles glass, which on its design qualities are not inferior to metal products. Simply put, the glass is now possible to produce anything, so how was it possible almost all types of compounds – bonding, "a groove in the groove, etc.

Actually, such glassware has long been a rarity. In any furniture store coffee tables can be seen from the table top from a solid sheet of glass in any store – glass display cabinets, and almost every house – Furniture with pieces of processed glass engraving. And if you go to the designer's showroom, you can see such articles made of glass, which, even 20-30 years ago things looked from the incredible. In this case we are talking only about machining of glass, not touching the glass-art, which also reached near-perfection! Individual attention, a mirror. Actually, the main difference between a mirror from glass – in additional reflecting layer, which is traditionally made silver-plated layer of the alloy. An important feature of the mirrors is that they are made exclusively from durum glass high marks, in fact need a guarantee that the mirror is not broken by a small stroke. Therefore, for a long time processing the mirrors was possible only in conditions of glass production, because the solid glass can not be exactly sawn and processed using hand tools. Now these problems do not exist and the mirrors are treated just like any other glass. Modern tools for working with glass in a fully deserve applied to them exordia "like clockwork."
