Glassblowing and Glass Production

There are several methods of making glass. One of these is glassblowing. Glassblowing uses air to inflate molten glass into various shapes. This is sometimes done with tubes and a person blowing into it. On a broader scale, this is sometimes done by machine. Glass can also be created through molds, casts, or rolling.

How is glass tempered?

Glass is tempered by...

When the glass has been made, it is heated again until it starts so go soft and the surfaces are then cooled quickly with air blasts. Since glass is a poor conductor of heat, the surfaces cool quickly and solidify whilst the inside is still liquid. When the inside cools and solidifies, it contracts, pulling on the outer layers. As the outer layers are solid, they cannot be pulled very far, so the pulling forces stay in the glass. The outer layers of the glass are being compressed...

Why do we recycle soda lime glass?

The making of soda lime glass is expensive to compare then recycle sodalime glass . Main component for making soda lime glass is silica. for melting silica required toomuch temperature & other component which soda lime glass required are also much expansive. but recycled soda lime glass required low temperature for melting to shape it again at low cost . so we recycle soda lime glass.
