What types of glass can be used for jewelry display cabinets?

In the production process of jewelry counters, a variety of glass materials and processes are used according to customer needs and other actual conditions. Some showcases need to consider the cost in the mass production process, so they will consider ordinary glass with relatively low cost, and make 90-degree corners. When making jewelry showcases with relatively high requirements, ultra-clear tempered glass or laminated glass is required.

Nowadays, no matter what the purpose of the glass used in the jewelry counter, it needs to be tempered. After all, there is a risk of breaking during use. So, in the actual production process, which ones are more suitable for the production of jewelry counters? This article will summarize and briefly introduce it for you.

The characteristics of jewelry counters with different glass materials are classified according to the glass material. The commonly used glass is divided into:


1. Ordinary tempered glass

This kind of glass is the most common glass, but it can also be divided into industrial glass and craft glass. The main difference between these two types lies in the purity and permeability. Craft glass is basically used in the production of jewelry counters. Tempered glass is safety glass. Tempered glass is actually a kind of prestressed glass. In order to improve the strength of glass, chemical or physical methods are usually used to form compressive stress on the glass surface. Wind pressure, cold and heat, impact, etc. It is suitable for various display products such as cosmetics counters, jewelry display cabinets, and watch counters.

The flat glass currently referred to is basically ordinary glass and ultra-white glass, which are cut out and then subjected to processes such as high-temperature tempering. The glass used in general showcases is basically tempered, and ultra-white glass is usually used as the preferred glass because of its high permeability and low reflection. But the price is basically double that of ordinary glass.


2. Ultra clear glass

Ultra-clear glass is a kind of ultra-transparent low-iron glass, also known as low-iron glass and high-transparency glass. It is a high-quality, multi-functional new type of high-grade glass. The customized light transmittance of the jewelry counter can reach more than 91.5%, which is crystal clear, high-end and elegant. It is mostly used for product display that requires high transparency and color, and jewelry counters are basically made of ultra-clear glass.


3.Laminated glass

Laminated glass, also known as laminated glass, is composed of two or more pieces of glass with one or more layers of organic polymer intermediate film sandwiched between them. A composite glass product that permanently bonds glass and interlayer into one body.

The biggest advantage of laminated glass is that even if it breaks, the fragments will be stuck to the film, and the broken glass surface will remain clean and smooth. This effectively prevents the occurrence of fragment injuries and ensures personal safety. Because the overall width and height of relatively large museum wall display cabinets are relatively large, laminated glass is needed to effectively ensure the safety of people and exhibits (crafts, artworks, antiques, cultural relics).


4. Hot bending glass

Hot-bent glass is a curved glass made by heating and softening flat glass, forming it in a mold, and then annealing it. In order to meet modern high-quality needs, hot-bent glass is made of high-quality glass that is heated and bent to soften, formed in a mold, and then annealed to make curved glass. The style is beautiful and the lines are smooth. It breaks through the singleness of flat glass and is more flexible and diverse in use. Suitable for jewelry counters, cosmetics counters, etc.


5. Frosted glass

Frosted glass is also called frosted glass and dark glass. It is made of ordinary flat glass by mechanical sandblasting, manual grinding or hydrofluoric acid dissolution and other methods to treat the surface into a uniform surface. Due to the rough surface, the light is diffusely reflected, and the light is transparent but not see-through. It can make the indoor light soft and not dazzling.


6. Painted glass

Jewelry display cabinets and paint display cabinets are very common in the production of display cabinets. In addition to different categories of display cabinet production, the requirements are also multi-faceted. Different types of display cabinet production have different requirements.
