What is Glass?

Glass is a material that is manufactured using silica together with some other additives and after going through a heat process, glass in made.  Typically, glass is transparent in nature and even though it is very solid, the material is very brittle.  Glass is used in many different applications, and you can see it being used in everything from lightbulbs, drinking ware and plates, bottles, and even in unseen products like fibre optics networking cables.  The most prominent glass application is the use of it in architectural use such as buildings, houses and shopping malls.

Generally, float glass is used as the main material for windows in buildings and houses. Float glass is sheets of glass manufactured by “floating” the glass on the bed of molten metal, hence coming out as a sheet. In glass construction technical terms however, float glass must be differentiated with tempered glass, which is a float glass that is strengthened using a heat and pressure process (called tempering”.  Both float glass and tempered glass are used in glass windows, doors and glass partitions depending on the safety requirements and the budget.

The most prominent manufacturer of glass in Malaysia is Malaysian Sheet Glass (now part of Pilkington). The glass that we at Glass Malaysia use are typically from this company.  However, as a supplier and contractor of glass, we further process the glass by cutting it to size, polishing the edge of the glass, tempering the glass after cut to the required size (tempered glass can no longer be cut), or etching and colouring the glass when required.  To learn more about glass renovation for your commercial or residential needs, please browse through the website of your preferred glass supplier here >
