Glass Types in our Lives

As we mentioned before these following types of glass;

to get previous article check here

4/ Coarse Glass

It is a normal glass; one or both surfaces are roughened to overcome the transparency of the glass, in two ways
Either the glass surface is coarse by the method of fabrication (the cutter or granulator or reinforced with steel wire) or the glass surface is roughened by sanding or sanding, which causes surface sculpting and an opaque flame. This method can be used to make drawings on glass by covering the desired parts keep transparent and sand is sprayed on other parts.

5/ Double Glass

It is a two-layer glass enclosed by an enclosed area tightly closed.

 The most important benefits of double glass provide transparency and reduce the thermal loss between the inside and outside and preferably in this type of sectors that the internal glass transparent 6 mm and exterior Secorit or reflector or shaded or transparent 8 mm among them Vacuum tight seal not less than 8 mm thick

6/ Curved Glass

This is an ordinary curved glass, which can be used in arched or circular outer facades. For science, the cost of this type of glass is high

7/ Stained Glass

This type of glass is a completely uneven surface, with a slightly flattened array of graphics on its surface. This type allows light to pass through less than normal transparent glass, and is used extensively in interior decoration, some fixed windows and domes.

8/ Solar Glass

It is one of the latest types of glass, a special kind of very pure glass coated with a material that allow to absorb sunlight and convert it into energy.

It can be used on the facades and surfaces of buildings in places where no energy sources are known.
The sun is produced in one minute enough to supply the population of the earth from Energy for one year.

Each colored solar panel can generate more than 130 watts of electrical power per square meter on rooftops or over 100 watts per square meter on the facades. About 2,000 solar panels in one building can generate 200 kilowatts of electricity.
