|English term or phrase: crazing|
|Definition from Pro Plastics Inc.:|
Minute lines appearing in or near the surface of materials such as plastics, usually resulting as a response to environment. Crazing cannot be felt by running a fingernail across if (if the fingernail catches, it is a crack).
- All concrete products and many natural stones, under varying conditions of moisture and temperature, are frequently subject to crazing. A manufacturer careful in proportioning of designs and watchful of compaction techniques and curing methods will minimize the likelihood of crazing as a result of manufacturing causes. Cast Stone Institute, Inc.
- Crazing is generally undesirable; however, certain glazes, referred to as crackle glazes, are specifically composed to develop a controlled form of crazing. About.com
- Crazing occurs when the surface of a moulding is stretched beyond its limit, due to localised surface stresses being too high at some time during moulding, finishing, or use. Performance Plastics Ltd
