Flat glass is made by dissolving sand, soda ash, and silica in a liquid and spreading it to the required thickness. The molten liquid is then cooled to obtain the desired product. Most flat glass is soda-lime glass, most commonly manufactured using the float glass process, however, it can also be rolled or formed by sheet metal. After manufacturing, the flat glass can be bent for various types of applications. Flat glass is most commonly used for manufacturing windows, doors, mirrors, photovoltaic modules, and e-glass structures among others.
