The Base Glass Test

Glass Compatibility Testing - The Base Glass Test

This compatibility test builds on the polarized lens test.

So how does the base glass test work? First off you need a clear piece of glass that is several inches lon and 1 1/2" in width. This piece is our "base" glass and will be used as our control. Thus with our control piece we will be able to test all our other glass pieces.

Now cut all the pieces you want to test into small squares. Make sure you cut a square from the "base glass" for reference. Place all you test pieces one inch apart on the clear glass. Flat fuse the pieces together.

After firing all you need to do now is to place the glass between your polarized film and look for how much halo appears around the test squares. The less light there is the more compatible your glass is.
