The Process of Handcrafting High Borosilicate Glass Cups:
Preparing Raw Materials: The process of making high borosilicate glass cups begins with the preparation of raw materials. The primary raw materials include high-purity sand, borax, and sodium carbonate. These raw materials are used to create the essential components of high borosilicate glass.
Mixing Raw Materials: The raw materials are precisely blended in specific proportions to create the specific composition required for high borosilicate glass. This mixture is referred to as high borosilicate glass material.
Melting the Glass Material: The high borosilicate glass material is introduced into a specially designed high-temperature furnace and heated to elevated temperatures, typically ranging from 1700°C to 2000°C. The high temperature melts the glass material into a viscous liquid.
Blowing and Shaping: A highly skilled glass artisan, known as a glassblower, inserts a metal tube (blowpipe) into the furnace, retrieves a measured amount of the molten high borosilicate glass material, and then blows air into the blowpipe to shape the material into the desired form of high borosilicate glass cups. This is a highly technical craft that requires the artisan to possess exceptional skills and expertise.
Cooling and Shaping: Once the desired shape of the high borosilicate glass cup is achieved, it is placed in a specialized cooling oven where it gradually cools to relieve internal stresses. Due to the unique characteristics of high borosilicate glass, it may require an extended cooling period.
Finishing and Decoration: After cooling, the high borosilicate glass cups undergo finishing and decorative processes, including cutting the base, polishing the edges, adding decorative patterns, and imprinting logos or designs.
Inspection and Quality Control: The finished high borosilicate glass cups undergo rigorous quality inspection to ensure there are no defects or imperfections. This includes checking the appearance, dimensions, thickness, and transparency of the cups.
Packaging and Shipping: Finally, the high borosilicate glass cups that pass the quality inspection are meticulously packaged and prepared for delivery to customers or retailers. Packaging typically includes appropriate protective materials to ensure the products remain undamaged during transportation.
Mouthblown glassware,mainly use borosilicate glass tube,the specifications are different according to different products weight and size.
Take glass teapot for example, if the diameter is 120mm, we choose glass tube with diameter 65 mm and thickness 3.2mm.
Customization services are a means of providing customers with personalized, tailored products or services. As a manufacturer, We can offer various types of customization services to meet customer demands. Here are some common customization service options:
