Glass Production, Processing & Performance provides an introduction to the different types of glass that are available and how to use them. Significant emphasis is placed on coated glasses, including the common types of low-e application processes and the impacts on energy and environmental performance. In addition, different types of flat glass processing and fabrication methods, as they relate to specifying glass, are also covered.
