Types of glass

We are often attracted to glass products. If you take a closer look, you will find the charm, the elegance and an unmatched precision in the production. Many people prefer to buy glass products because they are luxurious. They decorate our places by placing them as decorations and use them for various things in our daily life.

But which glass is best suited for the manufacture of our high-end products?

For this, we need to know for the first time what glass is and how glass is made. The basic material of glass is usually 75% silica, the remaining components are calcium oxide and sodium oxide as well as sand, limestone, iron chromite and other components. To manufacture glass, all materials are heated to a very high temperature and as soon as a viscous liquid is formed, this liquid is brought into the desired shape by various processes such as decanting into molds or blowing up in the blast furnace. Sand is involved in the manufacture of glass in enormous quantities, but there are many types in which sand does not fully penetrate.
