Fusing sys 96 into thickest possible pattern bar
- March 6, 2014 at 8:27 am #10112GregorytglassParticipant
I’m looking for suggestions. I’m making a stainless steel pattern bar former. The result will yield 5″ cubic pattern bar. Any suggestions for fusing glass this thick, keeping in mind the stainless. I’m extending all my usual holds and considering making annealing hold much longer and stepping it down instead of just turning off to auto cool.March 6, 2014 at 8:33 am #13291GregorytglassParticipant
The actual dimensions are 5″ x 5″ x 11″March 8, 2014 at 8:58 pm #13292Stephen RichardParticipantMarch 20, 2014 at 11:03 pm #13293gizzmogirlParticipant
Here is the schedule I have for something that thick (in F):
Ramp Temp Hold (minutes)
68 1250 310
68 working varied
AFAP 930 1200
1.2 775 375
2.4 600 60
7.2 100 0
This is from a Spectrum Annealing chart I have. I cannot find a link to it online, or I would post it for you.
