Standard Test Method for Non-Destructive Photoelastic Measurement of Edge and Surface Stresses in Annealed, Heat-Strengthened, and Fully Tempered Flat Glass
|Publication Date:||10 December 2000|
|ICS Code (Glass in building):||81.040.20|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of edge stresses and surface stresses in annealed, heat-strengthened, and fully tempered flat glass products.
1.2 This test method is non-destructive.
1.3 This test method uses transmitted light and is, therefore, applicable to light-transmitting glasses.
1.4 The test method is not applicable to chemically-tempered glass.
1.5 Using the procedure described, surface stresses can be measured only on the "tin" side of float glass.
1.6 Surface-stress measuring instruments are designed for a specific range of surface index of refraction.
1.7 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
