Glass storage issues and solutions

Glass is widely used and has many different purposes in our daily lives, however incorrect storage can result in glass trash. Glass may be stored effectively using glass storage racks.

Normal glass does not experience the issue of "aging" in the environment. Glass's chemical makeup is extremely stable, and because of this, sunlight, rain, and other environmental factors do not have an adverse influence on the performance of glass while it is in its natural state. Glass is also resistant to ordinary acid and alkali erosion. Two conditions typically have an impact on the life of the glass: humid air and high temperatures.

Long-term storage of glass or the chemical reaction brought on by humid conditions can develop mold, watermarks, oil marks, paper patterns, and other phenomena that are usually referred to as glass mold, also known as anti-alkali.

Mold is more likely to grow on glass piled in a humid warehouse or in an exposed pile during a downpour. Generally speaking, untempered glass has a higher likelihood of molding than tempered glass.

Alkali phenomena in glass White vinegar is a therapy option. A chemical interaction between the alkali and white vinegar will effectively dissolve the alkali phenomena on the glass.

The appearance of white spots and mold on the glass surface prevents it from being used for coating, mirroring, and other deep processing processes, and it reduces the mechanical strength of glass. The moldy glass will also have an impact on how well it performs optically. Serious mold will show up as stains and possibly cover the entire box of glass scrap. Currently, the three primary cold-end techniques for preventing glass mold are paper clamping, anti-mold powder, and anti-mold liquid.

Paper lamination method

Paper can absorb water and prevent the formation of a large area of water film on the glass surface, thus effectively preventing the glass surface from becoming moldy. The better the quality of the paper, the protective effect of the paper clip will increase. The paper clip method has a certain effect on mold, but the effective anti-mold period is short; once the glass is stored beyond the expiration date, the acidic anti-mold paper will produce "paper lines" on the glass that are not easy to clean, which is also damage to the glass.

Anti-mildew powder method

The anti-mold powder method refers to spraying anti-mold isolation powder on the glass surface, is a cost-effective and simple surface protection measure, and is currently the most widely used method in the industry. Before spraying the powder, apply static electricity to the powder so that it is evenly distributed and more firmly adsorbed on the surface of the glass plate.

Anti-mold liquid method

To prevent simple condensation of water vapor on glass surfaces as well as to prevent the "paper pattern" phenomena, the method makes use of the suppression action of divalent ions. There are two ways to utilize the anti-mildew solution: one is to mist it onto the glass' upper surface, and the other is to apply it to the surface of the glass with a soft rubber-coated roller and wait for natural drying.

The effect of high temperatures can cause thermal fracture of glass, which mostly occurs in the winter on sunny days. This is because the low temperature and heat generated by sunlight in winter cause a temperature difference in the plane direction of a piece of glass, forming a thermal shock and thermal fracture. The main way to prevent this type of phenomenon is not to store the glass in an open environment or to cover the glass with a cover cloth.

Glass storage should comply with the following considerations:

1. The glass storage place should be far away from the construction work and frequent activities of personnel in the region and should not be stored in windy areas.

2. The glass storage place should be dry and ventilated with a roof or indoors so that the whole glass is not exposed to the sun, and the untempered glass is more prone to thermal fracture than tempered glass.

3. Glass storage should be stored vertically so that the glass surface is inclined to the ground at an angle of about 70 ° to 80 °. The top should be against a solid object, and there should be soft isolation between two pieces of glass. The bottom can use wooden squares or other soft materials to pad more than 100mm from the ground. Click here for AL Shape Storage Rack.

4. The stack of single-layer glass should not exceed 20 pieces, and the stack of hollow glass should not exceed 15 pieces.
