Some Factors Affecting the Testing of Surface Durability of Flat Glass
Abstract:The surface durability of flat glass was studied by subjecting the glass to cycles of surface fogging and clearing. The total transmission and the amount of scattered light of the weathered samples were measured with a photoelectric haze meter, the relative amount of scattering being considered as a measure of the amount of haze or surface deterioration. Some factors influencing the test were considered, especially the age of the samples and previous conditions of storage. Comparisons were made between ground and polished surfaces and fire‐polished surfaces. The effects of acid and alkali treatment on the durability of the surfaces were also studied.
