Annealed glass is the most common glass used in the windows. It is also known as the standard sheet of float glass and it is the process of the slowly cooling hot glass objects after they have been formed to relieve the residual internal stresses of the glass and this process is used to achieve the originality of the glass.
Most of the companies nowadays prefer these glasses. It is often used in items such as tabletops, cabinet doors, and basement windows. Its tempered counterpart is typically found in balcony doors, athletic facilities, swimming pools, facades, shower doors and bathroom areas, exhibition spaces and displays, and computer towers and cases
Toughened glass is four to five times stronger than annealed glass of the same size and thickness against impact. Toughened glass has higher thermal strength and can withstand a high temperature differential up to 250°C.Toughened glass is considered as safety glass. It is difficult to break and even in the event of a breakage, disintegrates into small globules, which are relatively harmless.Toughening does not alter the basic characteristics of glass such as light transmission and solar radiant heat properties.After heat treatment, the surface of toughened glass has the same resistance to surface damage as annealed glass. Toughened glass cannot be cut, drilled or altered.Heat soak test is recommended to be carried out on Toughened glass that is used for overhead and horizontal application, to prevent the spontaneous breakage caused due to nickel sulphide inclusion.Toughened glass is specifically designed for use in areas where there is a high risk of contact and breakage. It can be used for exteriors and interiors, such as facades, showroom shelves, dividers, shower cabins, doors, etc.
Laminated glass is generally used when there’s an opportunity of human impact or where the glass could fall if shattered and also for architectural applications. Skylight glazing and automobile windshields typically use safety glass In geographical areas requiring hurricane-resistant construction, safety glass is usually utilized in exterior storefronts, curtain walls, and windows.
Insulating glass refers to two or more lines of glass sealed around the edges with an air space between to make one unit. Commonly mentioned as an “IGU,” insulating glass is the best thanks to reducing air-to-air heat transfer through the glazing. This glass is designed to keep homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It is traditionally used at office buildings, Hospitals, Hotels, Houses and those buildings where a large amount of heating or cooling is required.
Security glass was invented to supply maximum protection against deliberate attack. The security glass was designed to guard people and their property against vandalism or thieves. Glass panels may protect against any impact, falling objects as well as noise and fire.
It is used in a variety of demanding applications, including passenger vehicle windows, shower doors, architectural glass doors and tables, refrigerator trays, as a component of bulletproof glass, diving masks, and various types of plates and cookware.

DGU is a double glazed unit glass. DGU glass or double glazing units comprise of two panes of glass that are separated with a spacer and filled with argon gas between the two layers of glass. The glass is further finished on the sides and is ready for installation.
They are very good for heat insulation as they do not allow the inside air to go out or the outside heat to come in. It acts as a barrier that helps in energy-saving and reducing recurring electrical costs. It is used for Noise Reduction, Increased Security, Reduced Energy Bills, Increased Property Value, Reduced Interior damage, It is Eco-friendly, Little Condensation.
Lacquered glass, colored and opaque, is produced by depositing then baking a coating of lacquer to at least one side of clear glass. Lacquer may be a solution of film-forming materials, natural or synthetic, usually applied as a decorative or protective coating.
This unites colored lacquer with the brilliance of glass. It brings color and ambiance to interiors and is particularly suitable for more demanding locations, such as bathrooms and kitchens. In homes, offices, hotels, shops and museums, clear glass fused with lacquer creates smooth, homogeneous surfaces as wall-paneling, in furniture and in wardrobe and cupboard doors.
It is glass that has been treated with a metallic substance and offers mirror-like properties. The phrase mirrored glass can apply to products made specifically to function mirrors also as glass that’s reflective but made for architectural or decorative purposes, such as facades or tabletops.
It is commonly used for personal grooming, viewing oneself (where they are also called looking-glasses), viewing the area behind and on the sides on motor vehicles while driving, for decoration and architecture.
