Properties of Transparent Color Coating Glass Fabricated by Sol-Gel Technology


Article Preview

Color sol was fabricated and coated it on glass substrate using sol-gel method. Silicate sol prepared by the use of commercially available tetraethoxysilane(TEOS), tetramethoxysilane (TMOS), methoxysilane(MTSO), phenytrimethoxysilane(PTMS) as a raw material of alkoxysilane family, and C.I. solvent red 122 and C.I. solvent yellow 82 as a organic dye, and C.I. pigment blue 28 and C.I. pigment red 26 as a pigment. Colored thin films were fabricated with changing the withdrawal speed by dip coating method, and heat treatment at 100~400°C. The visible light transmittance of colored thin film was measured with UV/VIS spectrophotometer, the surface hardness measured by pencil test, the surface turbidity measured by haze meter, and the film thickness was measureded by Alpha-step surface profiler.
