Glass with no distortions

a. Sheet b. Float c. Tempered Annealed glass that is reheated to just below the softening point and then rapidly cooled to induct compressive stresses in the interior. Tempered glass has three to five times the resistance of annealed glass to impact and thermal stresses

but cannot be altered after fabrication. When fractured, it breaks into relatively harmless pebble-sized particles. Annealed glass is cooled slowly to relieve internal stresses Heat-strength glass is annealed glass that is partially tempered by a process of reheating and sudden cooling. Heat-strengthened glass has about twice the strength of annealed

glass of the same thickness. d. Plate glass formed by rolling molten glass into a plate that is subsequently ground and polished after cooling. Plate glass provides virtually clear, undistorted vision.
