Glass is a silicate non-metallic material formed by the melting of silicon dioxide and other chemical substances, which is widely used in buildings to insulate the wind and light, increase indoor brightness, improve people's visual effects, beautify the shape of buildings, and improve the living environment. However, it can not be ignored that while people are exposed to the natural environment, they are also in hidden danger. Ordinary glass is fragile, and it is easy to cause harm to people by exposing sharp edges or sharp corners after breaking. In addition, it is difficult for ordinary glass to meet the fire protection requirements. Therefore, it is becoming more and more important to test the properties of glass. As a professional reliability third-party testing organization, T,C&A Lab can provide Glass Testing service according to ISO, ASTM standards and industry requirements. Welcome to contact our experts for consultation.
Our testing range include but are not limited to:
- Architectural Glass
- Industrial Glass
- Special Glass
The function of architectural glass is not only to meet the lighting requirements, but also to have the characteristics of light adjustment, heat preservation, safety, and artistic decoration. The types of architectural glass include:
Fireproof glass, toughened glass, laminated glass, homogeneous toughened glass, flat glass, hollow glass, vacuum glass, coated glass filament glass, raster glass, embossed glass, U-shaped glass for construction, mosaic glass, glass curtain wall, etc.
Toughened safety glass, electrically heated glass, bulletproof glass, semi-toughened glass, mirror glass, automotive glass, heat insulation coated glass, solar cell glass, etc.
High-pressure glass, high-temperature and high-pressure glass, high-temperature glass, fireplace glass, wave soldering glass, oven glass, temperature-resistant and high-pressure glass, ultraviolet glass, optical glass, blue cobalt glass, etc.
