Anisotropy + White Haze Scanner
Measure and minimize Anisotropies in façade glazings and rework White Haze
When it comes to the visual quality of tempered and heat-treated glass, anisotropy is a top concern among producers and architects or end users. Anisotropies, also known as iridescence, present as dark circles, spots or stripes in the glass that are visible in polarized light, from certain angles or through polarized sunglasses. The visual effect is caused by different tensions in the glass, mostly resulting from the tempering process.
As option in addition to measuring anisotropies, the scanner can detect white haze on the glass, which can be caused by dust, rollers or other factors in the furnace. The haze detection allows operators to know exactly where they must rework the glass to ensure a clean surface before sending it to the next processing stage or the customer.
