Table of Relative Viscosity?

Postby lbailey128 » Thu Aug 10, 2017 5:22 pm

Is there a table with some sort of value assigned to BE glass that indicates it's relative viscosity? (Within the BE family....)

Thanks

Hi,

We do not have a relative viscosity chart available to share.

Well, this implies that such a table exists, right?

If so, why wouldn't BE share it with their customers? I understand that nothing is absolute and many of the BE products include disclaimers, etc. Seems very odd that it is not made available.....

Bullseye does share lots of information about our products--I dare say, more than most manufacturers!

There are working notes for each glass style in "About Our Glass". http://www.bullseyeglass.com/products/a ... glass.html Relative viscosity is often mentioned, so that is one place to look for info.

In general, transparent glasses are softer than opalescent glasses, and dark glasses are softer than light glasses. 0100 Black and 1412 Light Aventurine Green are the softest glasses, and 0137 French Vanilla may be the stiffest glass.

I hope this helps. If we ever release the info you requested, I will post a link here.
