Nach 40+_ 5 Minuten werden die Masken einzeln aus dem Ofen genommen.

Leider ist keine einzige Abbildung dabei. Ich habe nur 'disannealing' gefunden, bin mir aber ueberhaupt nicht sicher. Wer weiss wie man das wirklich auf Englisch nennt? Vielen Dank!!!

I think this is correct, as you suggest. I am not sure if this is the same process you mention, but I give it in case it helps

A borosilicate glass and a lead-containing silicate glass were exposed to various dosages of 2 Mev electrons, and the effects on the logarithmic decrement and period of a freely oscillating torsional pendulum in which each was made the torsional member were noted. These effects, in both glasses, are qualitatively described as disannealing. Quantitatively, tan delta was increased 10 to 15% in the berosilicate and 30 to 60% in the lead glass, and the corresponding decreases in rigidity were of the order of 0.4 and 2%, respectively. In both glasses the mechanical effects and the associated brownish color annealed out in about 20 hours at 500 deg F. Resides these effects, there were some completely unexpected effects which are reported for the first time and should be verified by others. These consist of (1) changes in the shape of tan delta vs. temperature curves caused not only by thermal treatment but also by changes in period of the pendulum and (2) fine structure in the tan delta vs. temperature maxima due to sodium ion diffusion. These details complicate the in terpretation of such maxima and, if verified, will justify a re-examination of the anelastic behavior of glasses in general and berosilicate glasses in particular.

This link refers to disannealing or tempered glass, so that may be another way of saying it:

Hardened glass is made from annealed glass that goes through a thermal tempering process. The glass is put on a roller table that sends it through a furnace. This furnace then heats it to about 1112 degrees Fahrenheit which is just above its annealing point. Then the glass is rapidly cooled with forced draughts of air while the inner portion of the glass remains free to flow for a short period of time.

From what I read over and over again, tempered or annealed glass finishes are removed by the application of acid. It is perfectly correct to call this process disannealing. My only question would be why one would want to do that. I wonder if you could explain the application of this process a little more, please?

Thanks for letting us know, hausencla - seems unlikely, doesn't it? But it is nice that you give some feedback; some posters seem to forget to do that.

Asker: Yes, baking = abtempern... but the "client is king". Well, if I cannot award any points, I feel that I should at least explain. Have a good day, and thanks for your help!!
