How glass failure investigation can help solve quality issues

Glass is an extremely strong material in a perfect condition. However, glass is only as strong as its weakest point. Meaning that dealing with weakening features such as forming issues, damage or inclusions at the earliest point will reduce the risk of a much larger problem. This webinar focuses on how teamwork both inside and outside Glass Technology Services can help to eliminate these issues. 

  

What you will learn about: 

  • Common glass failure modes 

  • Common glass quality issues 

  • Types of fracture analysis 

  • Types and sources of glass inclusions 

  • Cross- departmental case studies
