Low E Glass

Posted by Mirza Tihic ( on 14:40:36 28/04/06

I am working on a class project and was wondering if anybody can guide me to online source with regard my questiosn below:
Basically, I am looking to understand the process of producing low E glass. I know that there are two different processes though I would like to know more
about the materials used in the Low E Glass, like why is Silver, Indium, Copper, etc being used? (also what properties does each of these materials
contribute to low E glass?) What are the critical properties for low e glass? Where is Indium used (Indium or Indium-tin-oxide)? Why? What is the application for different Low E glass? Which material needs glue? Which material is scratch resistant? Why is Indium used in low E glass? What are the critical properties that Indium has compared to other material?

Thank you!
