IG glass is made up of two discrete pieces of glass with an airspace interlayer.
Monolithic Glass (3/32 inch to 3/4 inch):
Consists of a single sheet of glass formed using the float glass manufacturing process.
Consists of a plastic interlayer material, polyvinyl butyral, that keeps the glass in place should it break. The pieces are retained within the frame and do not “fall off” after impact.
The practice of "restoration"- restoring an antique piece of glass to a like-new condition (or what might be perceived by a viewer or potential buyer as like-new). It takes special skill and care to bring something antique such as mirrors or windows back to their original state.
Is usually made by taking one-quarter inch-thick clear glass and creating a one-inch bevel on one side around the entire periphery.
A transparent thermoplastic, often used as a light or shatter-resistant alternative to glass. Chemically, it is the synthetic polymer of methyl methacrylate
Bullet Resistant Glass:
Made by layering a polycarbonate material between pieces of ordinary glass in a process called lamination. This process creates a glass-like material that is thicker than normal glass.
A wide range of decorative glass and clear sealed units for use by the door and window industry.
