TC02: Durability & Analysis

This committee is concerned with both chemical durability and analysis and is committed to the pursuit of analytical excellence through the standardization and harmonization of analytical methodology throughout the glass and associated industries.

Nanomechanical

TC06: Mechanical & Nanomechanical Properties

TC06 covers the mechanical, including nanomechanical, properties of glasses. The committee’s work involves both test methods (e.g. edge strength measurement) and understanding the fundamentals of glass fracture.

TC10: Optical Properties

TC10 has recently changed its name to “Optical Properties and Characterization”, most of its activities being based around different optical measurements of glass and coated glass products. However, it retains a sub-group to study basic optical properties.

Glass Surface

TC19: Surface Properties

The future work of TC19 should be more oriented as a market place for exchange of expertise. The members discussed the preparation of individual working groups, which present their work once a year. A time-line for participants to be agreed prior to the start of an activity.
