Finding the right plate glass manufacturer can be difficult as there are many out there, but the right plate glass manufacturer will work with you and listen to your application to manufacture the right type of plate glass for your applications. The thickness of the glass is perhaps the most important aspect to consider when purchasing plate glass, as some plate glass can be very brittle and if the plate glass is being utilized within a structure certain building codes must be met.

Plate glass is made through the process of melting down sand and other materials into what is known as liquid glass. This glass is then spread out over a metal table where rollers will pass over it until the glass is smooth. The glass will then polish while it cools down. This is what creates the coveted uniform sheet of glass. After the glass is completely cooled, if your application so requires, this is when additional polishing would take place.

Occasionally, plate glass can be made by allowing the molten glass to float on molten tin to create a uniform shape. As stated before, plate glass can be incredibly brittle so it takes a great deal of skill and precision to cut this glass down to size. Typically, a glass plate manufacturer will offer a number of standard sizes or a custom order can be filled if your application requires a unique shape or size.

In order to get the perfect size, shape and thickness, it is key to communicate these needs with your plate glass manufacturer. It is important to keep in mind that thicker glass is much more difficult to cut, but at the same time the increased thickness of the glass provides more durability and structural strength.

Discussing your needs with an experienced glass manufacturer will help you determine the right specifications for your applications and help you find a solution that fits your requirements and your budget.
