Glass and Ceramics (English translation of Steklo i Keramika)
The results of studies of thermochemical modification of the surface of a glass ribbon in continuous production are presented. It is shown that the deposition of a composite coating, which was developed by the present authors, on the surface of the glass increases its water resistance by an order of magnitude and the mechanical strength about 2-fold. The essence of the proposed development lies in the deposition in several stages of chemical reagents which create on the surface of the glass a transparent film that permits controlling the quality of the float-ribbon. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
