Base class

For determining the base class massive glass pieces with defined surfaces are treated in a boiling alkaline solution.

The extent of the chemical attack of the glass surface is described by the loss of mass in terms of the surface. The glass surface’s roughness influences the chemical attack directly and has to be considered during the procedure.
