Membership

The Society of Glass Technology exists to serve those people who are interested in any aspect of glass through dissemination of information. Membership is open to individuals, companies, associations or institutions. Personal Members are part of a comprehensive international network of specialists in their particular field of glass. Members also have access to the wider range of specialisms encompassed by the SGT. This wide network operates through personal contact, meetings, workshops and publications. New graduates are introduced to this network and to one another through specialist seminars. Recognition is given to individual achievement. Fellowship of the Society is awarded to members who have reached prescribed levels of attainment in the business of glass and associated industries and for recognised contributions to the science and technology of glass. Fellows are entitled to use the designatory letters ‘FSGT’. In the United Kingdom the Society supports the personal development of members to the status of Chartered Engineer. Fellows are individual members who have met prescribed requirements of education, achievement or service to the Industry and the Society. They may use the designatory letters "FSGT". Corporate Members The technical and personal objectives of the Society bring direct benefits to industry and institutions associated with glassmaking. These organisations are encouraged to make a positive contribution to furthering the aims of the Society. A corporate member nominates representatives of its company to benefit from the privileges enjoyed by a Personal Member. For full details on the benefits, discounts and annual fees see the corporate membership page. Any member offering consultancy services to the glass industry can obtain a free listing in the February issue of Glass Technology as well as on this web site.

Journals

The Society of Glass Technology and the Deutsche Glastechnische Gesellschaft have reached a historic agreement to combine their journals from 2006 into two new series entitled Glass Technology: European Journal of Glass Science and Technology Part A, Physics and Chemistry of Glasses: European Journal of Glass Science and Technology Part B. Dr R Hand and Prof M Ingram will continue as Senior Editors and will be joined by Dr U Roger and Prof C Rüssel as Regional Editors in Germany. This agreement was approved unanimously by both the Council of SGT (18th May 2005) and the Board of DGG (23rd May 2005). The Memorandum of Understanding was formally signed by Dr J M Parker as President of SGT and Prof G Müller (DGG President) and Dr U Roger (DGG Managing Director) at a ceremony which took place at the Opening Reception of the DGG Annual Meeting in Würzburg on 23rd May 2005. Messrs J Henderson and R Duly as Secretary and Treasurer were also signatories to the Agreement.

Publications

The SGT publishes a range of monographs, reports and conference proceedings that provide definitive texts on subjects of direct relevance to those working in glass and related areas.

Proceedings

The Society of Glass Technology began publishing its proceedings and transactions in 1917 in its Journal of the Society of Glass Technology. The Journal consisted of three portions: Proceedings and Reports, being accounts of the business of the Society's meetings and reports approved by council; Transactions and their ensuing Discussions which had been read to the Society and authorised for publication; and Abstracts and Reviews of the British and foreign journals of such papers as may be of service to persons interested in glass. From February 1960 the Journal was split into two parts called Glass Technology and Physics and Chemistry of Glasses. Glass Technology contains reports of applied science in the glass industry. Physics and Chemistry of Glasses contains reports of original studies of the physics and chemistry of glasses, both experimental and theoretical. Both journals continue to publish book reviews and abstracts from the international scientific and technical literature. The SGT publishes a range of monographs, reports and conference proceedings that provide definitive texts on subjects of direct relevance to those working in glass and related areas.

Certified Reference Materials

The SGT offer a range of glasses and raw materials intended for the verification of analytical methods, such as those used by the participating laboratories, for the calibration of analytical instruments, for establishing values for secondary reference materials, for the validation of analytical procedures and for training purposes. These reference materials have been generated by the Analysis and Properties Technical Committee now working in collaboration with the Bureau of Analysed Samples Ltd www.basrid.co.uk .

 

Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) produced from November 2000 onwards demonstrate traceability in accordance with the principles of ISO Guides 30 – 35 and the International Vocabulary of Basic and General Terms in Metrology. Our commitment to continuous improvement is further demonstrated with CRMs issued from 2007 onwards being produced under ISO Guide 34 accreditation.

Characterisation of CRMs has been achieved by inter-laboratory study, each laboratory using method(s) of their choice, details of which are given in the certificate accompanying the appropriate CRM. Most methods used were either international or national standard methods or methods which are technically equivalent. All laboratories used either stoichiometric analytical techniques or methods which were calibrated predominantly against pure metals or stoichiometric compounds.

Some of the participating laboratories were accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 at the time of the analysis, although not necessarily for all of the constituents determined. It has been established statistically that there is no difference between the results of the accredited and the non-accredited laboratories.

The SGT wish to thank all participating laboratories for their assistance in the certification process. Our network, as from November 2007, includes laboratories from Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Greece, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Japan, Turkey and the United States of America although the actual number of participating analysts vary with each candidate material.

For a full listing of analytes and more details see the pdf links to the individual CRM certificates.

Effect of Silica & Sodium Oxide JSGT_V5_T121-T123

Effect of Silica & Sodium Oxide JSGT_V5_T121-T123

SILICA after fusion is noteworthy by reason of its very low thermal coefficient of expansion, which makes it extremely valuable for conversion into articles which have to res st sudden changes of temperature. This property of low thermal expansion it also bestows on sllicate gla.sses, although whether to the same extent
as in the free state is not yet clear. In previous attempts to calculate the thermal coefficient of expansion of glasses, * we have assumed that silica takes \vith it into the glasses this same low expansion rate. This certainly is an assumption , although the agreement between the calculated and the experimental results
does at any rate not contradict it. S English and W E S Turner
