Glass is one of the world’s oldest and most versatile human-created materials. Made from liquid sand exposed to extreme temperatures, glass has a very unique composition. At ordinary temperatures, glass materials are relatively strong, biologically inactive, and corrosion resistant. Below, we will explain more about its use and laser glass marking.
Thanks to its ease of shaping, glass has been customarily used for containers such as bowls, vases, bottles, jars and drinking glasses. The refractive, reflective and transmission properties of glass also make it suitable for manufacturing optical lenses, prisms, and optoelectronics materials.
Various technologies can be used to mark or label glass. Laser glass marking is possible with technologies such as UV to react with the material to leave a precise, readable mark. Labels can also be applied to flat or curved glass surfaces in a uniform way.
