QFloat™

QFloat™ is the name given to our base glass products that are manufactured using the float glass process. QFloat™ is manufactured in either clear or toned and is ideal for further processing into a range of glazing products such as laminates, toughened glass, coated glass and IGUs.

Considerations

Glass Processing
General glazing, further processing:toughened, laminated or toughened laminate glass, insulating glass, mirror coated and screen printed.

Glass 
19mm clear float glass absorbs proportion of solar radiation and may require thermal assessment depending on application. Toned float glass absorbs a proportion of solar radiation and may require thermal assessment depending on application. SuperClear is optically clearer than standard float glass due to its low iron content.

Thermal Stress and Fracture Risk
Some products recommended for thermal stress fracture risk assessment.

How to Specify
Glass Thicknesses and colours available:
  • Clear 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15 & 19mm
  • Light Grey 6mm
  • Grey 4, 5, 6 ,8,10 & 12mm
  • Green 5 ,6 & 10mm
  • Bronze 4, 5 ,6, 10 & 12mm
  • SuperGreen  3 & 6mm
  • SuperGrey™  6mm
  • SuperBlue  6 & 10mm
  • SuperGold 6mm
  • SuperClear 4, 6, 10, 12, 15 & 19mm

Select from: Annealed, Heat Strengthened, Toughened or Toughened Heat Soaked

*If unsure, select in compliance with AS1288–2006 or manufacturers recommendation. *

The glass shall comply with the following performance criteria:

  • U value
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)
  • Visible Light Transmission %
  • Glass Only Values
  • Total window

Annealed
Annealed glass is glass produced without internal stresses imparted by heat treatment, i.e., rapid cooling, or by toughening or heat strengthening. Annealed glass is not a Grade A safety glass.

Toughened
Glass converted to a safety glass by subjection to a process of pre-stressing so that, if fractured, the entire piece disintegrates into small, harmless particles. Toughened glass is a Grade A Safety Glass.

Heat Soaking
Heat soak testing is a destructive test, which reduces the likelihood of spontaneous breakage by converting impurities such as nickel sulphide inclusions. Heat soaking is required in some but not all applications. If unsure, select in compliance with AS1288-2006 or manufacturers recommendation.

Heat Strengthening
All glass which requires extra strength and thermal resistance will be heat strengthened. Heat strengthening increases the strength of annealed glass; however, it is not a substitute for toughened glass.

In the event of fracturing heat strengthened glass will crack and tends to remain in glazed position.

Toned Glass
Toned glass absorbs a proportion of solar radiation and may require a thermal assessment depending on application.

All glass is to be selected and installed in accordance but not exclusively with the following Australian and/or New Zealand Standards

  • AS 1288 Glass in Buildings Selection and Installation
  • AS 1170 Minimum Wind Loads on Structures
  • AS/NZ 2208 Safety Glazing Materials in Buildings
  • AS/NZ 4666 Insulating Glass Units
  • AS/NZ 4667 Quality Requirements for cut-to-size and Processed Glass

 

Oceania Glass makes and distributes glass. Oceania Glass does not process glass nor produce Insulated Glass Units. Processing of glass and production of Insulated Glass Units is undertaken by independent processors. Speak with your nominated glass processors to understand their processing capability.
