The Glass Process

There are 6 main steps in manufacturing float glass:

  1. Melting and refining
  2. Float bath
  3. Coating
  4. Annealing
  5. Inspection
  6. Cutting to order
As all the glass White Metal supplies is either toughened or toughened and laminated, the cut float glass then goes through one or two more processes.
  • Toughening/tempering the glass
  • Laminating
Annealed Glass Annealed glass is a basic product formed from the annealing stage of the float process. The molten glass is allowed to cool slowly in a controlled way until it reaches room
