The glass, developed at Mitsubishi Electronics Laboratories in Japan, is made by mixing boric acid glass powder with carbonized fiber and heating it to 1,000 degrees Celsius.It is the use of cemented carbide glass, its maximum breaking stress for the general glass more than 2 times, no brittle weakness, nails and wood screws, do not have to worry about breakage.
The non-reflective glass, developed by Germany's SCHOTT Glass, has a light reflectivity of less than 1% (compared with 8% for typical glass), which solves the problem of reflective glass and blinding headaches.
The glass, made by a Hungarian research institute, is made up of multiple layers, each of which is embedded with very thin metal wires that send out an alarm system in case thieves break the glass.
Sound insulation glass
A Japanese company has imported technology from Germany to make a new type of soundproof glass.The glass, made of a soft resin up to 5mm thick, binds two layers of glass together and absorbs almost all noise, making it ideal for recording and broadcasting studios.It costs five times as much as ordinary glass.
Air conditioning glass
It's made of double glazing, which sends the heat into a glass sandwich and sends it out through a vent, instead of a radiator.This not only saves energy, but also is convenient, sound-proof and dustproof, and can be changed to send air conditioner in summer.
The vacuum glass, developed by Flat Glass Of Japan, has a vacuum layer of 1/100 atmospheres of 0.2mm apart between two pieces of glass that are 3 millimeters thick.The vacuum glass is only 6.2mm thick and can be mounted directly on a normal window frame.It has good heat and sound insulation effect, suitable for the Windows of houses and high-rise buildings.
The transparency of the glass developed in the United States can change with the Angle of view, it has a special polymer film, its dispersion, thickness, area and form can be chosen by the manufacturer freely, it can play a certain protection and shielding effect.
Holographic diffract glass, developed by a team of Researchers in Boston, concentrates certain colours of light in selected directions.Windows with this glass break down natural light into spectral combinations and shoot it up to the ceiling to reflect it all over the room. Even in rooms without Windows, sunlight can be "picked up" from the reflective walls through ventilation ducts and diffused through holes into the ceiling.
A British company has developed thermochromic thermotropic glass called cloud gel, a synthetic glass with a plastic film on both sides and a polymer water-coloured solvent sandwiched between them.It is transparent in the low temperature environment and absorbs the heat energy of sunlight. When the ambient temperature rises, it turns into an opaque white cloud color and blocks the heat energy of sunlight, thus effectively regulating the indoor temperature.
The university of Florida developed a new bioglass with bioactivity that can bind to active tissue.This bioglass has biological adaptability and can be used in artificial bone and gingival.
A Japanese company has developed a window glass with a thin inner layer that gives a clearer picture to indoor television sets.
German scientists have created an ultra-thin glass as thin as 0.003mm thick for use in optoelectronics, biosensors, computer displays and other modern technologies.
Information on the glass
Tokushima University in Japan has invented a glass that can record information.When it records information, it first USES an optical microscope to focus the laser on a point inside the glass, 30 microseconds to complete the irradiation, leaving a recording spot, reading the information, through the laser scanning spot.This kind of recording information can be carried out at room temperature, and its performance has been higher than that of the optical disc used by everyone.
Contaminated discolored glass
A color-changing glass for detecting pollution has been developed by the Air Pollution Observation Laboratory in California, USA.This kind of glass can change its color when polluted by polluted gas, such as turning green when polluted by acidic gas, turning yellow and gray when polluted by amine-containing gas, etc. It will have a wide range of USES for pollution detection and marking materials.
Carbon dioxide emitting glass
The Osaka Institute of Industrial Technology, Japan's Institute of Industrial Technology, has developed a carbon dioxide-permeable glass film that can be applied to the Windows of living rooms to expel carbon dioxide-gas from the interior.It is in different humidity, through the amount of carbon dioxide is different, the higher the humidity, through the higher.
Electrolytic atomized glass
Electrolytic atomized glass, with scratch and scratch resistance, feel comfortable, soft, without sweat stains, fingerprints.It changes the cold and hard feeling of traditional glass.Its biggest characteristic is the electrolytic atomized glass after electrification, will automatically produce surface atomization effect, instantly change the transparency, in the outside looks like the general white wall.Japan's transparent public toilets are the result of electrolytic atomized glass.
Bulgarian building materials experts have successfully developed a foam glass, which has good biological stability, no decay, poor moisture absorption, easy to process, but also easy to adhere to other building materials.The new foam glass is made from liquid glass with various mineral components.
The University of Tokyo in Japan has invented a titanium-coated glass that prevents dirt and water spots from accumulating on the surface and can be cleaned automatically and shockproof.
