Flotation glass

Apr 21, 2021

The float glass process, which was originally developed by Pilkington Brothers in 1959 (Haldimann et al., 2008), is the most common manufacturing process of flat glass sheets.More than 80–85% of the global production of float glass is used in the construction industry (Glass for Europe, 2015a).In the float glass process, the ingredients (silica, lime, soda, etc.) are first
