Glass

  1. 1. GLASS AS A BUILDING MATERIAL
  2. 2. TYPES OF GLASS
  3. 3. GLASS PRODUCTION Glass production involves 2 main methods: •the float glass process which produces sheet glass • Glassblowing which produces bottles and other containers.  GLASS CONTAINER FACTORIES :-  Modern glass container factories are 3 part operations: - the batch house, the hot end, and the cold end • The batch house handles the raw materials • The hot end handles the manufacture proper — the furnaces, annealing ovens, and forming machines •The cold end handles the product-inspection and packaging equipment.
  4. 4. GLASS COMPONENTS Glass is an amorphous (non- crystalline) solid material which is often transparent and has widespread practical, technological, and decorative usage in things like window panes, tableware, and optoelectronics.  The most familiar, and historically the oldest, types of glass are based on the chemical compound silica (silicon dioxide), the primary constituent of sand.
  5. 5. ADVANTAGES & DIS-ADVANTAGES OF GLASS  Advantages :- -Can be made in different sizes -Can be coloured or colourless -Does not rust -Waterproof  Disadvantages :- -An expensive material  -Breaks easily-Melts in high temperatures -When broken, the pieces may be sharp
  6. 6. Types Of glass  Float glass Is Made up of floating molten glass on a bed of molten tin. This method gives the sheet uniform thickness and very flat surfaces.Modern windows are mde from float glass.
  7. 7. Types Of Glass  Laminated Glass Type of safety glass that holds together when shattered Held in place by interlayer, typically of polyvinyl betrayal, between its two or more layers of glass Interlayer keeps it bonded when broken. Produces spider web pattern when broken.
  8. 8. Types Of Glass  Stained Glass The term explains a glass generally refers to glass that has been coloured by adding metallic salts during the manufacture. The coloured glass is crafted into stained glass windows in which small pieces of glass are arranged to form patterns or pictures, held together by strips of lead and supported by a rigid frame.
  9. 9. Types Of Glass  Tinted Glass There are many varieties into this type like tinted float glass, including colors of dark blue, French green, dark green, dark grey, bronze and pink.
  10. 10. Types Of Glass  Figured Glass They are of two types. 1) Clear 2) Colored The patterns are of flora, kasumi, mistlite, Pin Head, Reeded, Yozura, Konoha, Karatachi etc,
  11. 11. Types Of glass  Beveled Glass Usually made by taking one quarter inch thick clear glass and creating a one inch bevel on one side around the entire periphery. This bevels act like prisms in sunlight creating interesting color diffraction which both highlights the glasswork and provides a spectrum of colors which are usually absent in float glass. These can vary from simple three or four piece designs.
  12. 12. Types Of Glass  Toughened Glass
  13. 13. Types Of Glass  Insulated Glass Consists Of two or more lites of glass separated by a hermitically sealed space for thermal insulation and condensation control. Used Specially for windows, curtain walls and skylights.
  14. 14. Types Of Glass  Wired Glass Involves steel wires rolled into sheets of glass. A wire mesh is inserted during the manufacturing of plate glass, allowing the glass to adhere together when cracked. Can Be qualified as safety glass for some applications.
  15. 15. GLASS USED FOR DIFFERENT PURPOSES
  16. 16. APPLICATION OF GLASS IN BUILDING INDUSTRY
  17. 17. USE OF GLASS IN EXTERIOR & INTERIOR
  18. 18. USE OF GLASS FOR WALL
  19. 19. FIXING OF GLASS
