7.1 Packaging

7.2 Marking

2---glass;

4---Low-E coating surface;
5---pillar.
Figure A.1 -- Sketch Map of Structure of Typical Vacuum Insulating Glass There is very little gas in the vacuum chamber of vacuum insulating glass. The convective heat transfer of the gas is very small in the vacuum chamber. Hence, the thermal transmittance is relatively low. In order to further enhance the thermal insulation properties of vacuum insulating glass, at least one piece of low-E coated glass may be used in the substrate of vacuum insulating glass. This may reduce the radiative heat transfer of vacuum insulating glass, which will further reduce the thermal transmittance of vacuum insulating glass.
Due to the existence of vacuum chamber, vacuum insulating glass effectively blocks the transmission of sound, and the sound insulation effect is quite satisfying. Meanwhile, vacuum insulating glass also has the characteristics of good anti- condensation effect, thermal transmittance free of the influence of the placement angle, and long service life, etc.
A.2 Vacuum Insulating Glass Prepared with Tempered Glass as the Substrate Since the strength of tempered glass is higher than ordinary glass, vacuum insulating glass made with tempered glass as the substrate can, to a certain extent, enhance vacuum insulating glass’s resistance to the external atmospheric pressure. In comparison with vacuum insulating glass made with ordinary glass, the mechanical properties (wind pressure resistance, temperature difference resistance and impact resistance) can also be improved. Meanwhile, for vacuum insulating glass made of tempered glass, the spacing of pillar may be properly expanded, which may further decrease the thermal transmittance of vacuum insulating glass, enhance the thermal insulation properties, and simultaneously, make the glass more nice-looking. Due to the particularity of the structure and the processing of vacuum insulating glass, based on the current technical level, some mechanical properties (for example, impact resistance) of vacuum insulating glass made of tempered glass as the substrate are lower than individual pieces of tempered glass before lamination.
NOTE: tempered glass refers to physical tempered glass.
