This parison is then carefully cooled while being blown into the final bottle
shape by a stream of compressed air before the bottle is subjected to a number
of downstream processes.“Our aim is to make lighter china empty perfume
bottle, that use less raw materials, less energy to melt and therefore cost
less to manufacture,” says Ferrari. “However, since glass is a very sensitive
material, we also have to ensure that the bottles are very strong. Not breaking
is the most important thing a bottle has to do.”
One innovative use of glass fittings is in making of toilette implements like
special mirrors. These are usually preheated and enable one to see their
profiles clearly upon taking a bath. This is because they do not allow water
vapor to settle on the surface unlike standard mirrors that have cold panes. The
pane is touched in a black shade that entraps sun’s rays and keeps it dry for
long periods. This makes them customized to conserve heat.
The other novel use of glass fittings is in the fixing of cabinet sliding
doors. This is achieved through the smooth edge of the pane that ensures that
the piece only enters into the perfect position. This utility does not just end
there for they are also quite decorative products. They make the cabinet appear
classy and sophisticated. Furthermore, they do not break easily for they are
made of strong material.
These come in a set of dimensions that can fit different sizes of lockers.
There are also quite large panes that are designed for normal sliding entrances.
These are made of heavy material that is embedded onto the wood or metal of the
structure for firmness reasons. They can either be transparent or opaque
depending on the privacy needs of the homeowner. They are also energy efficient
due to the high quality pane used in their manufacture.
