Italian term or phrase: fuso a gran fuoco
Si tratta di tavole e altri oggetti di arredamento in cristallo curvato.
Le lastre di "cristallo float " (float glass) sono curvate ad alte temperature e "fuso a gran fuoco" . Qualcuno mi puo' confermare che per "fuso a gran fuoco" si tratta del processo di tempering (o toughening), che va fatto appunto per ultimo, quando le altre lavorazioni sono stati completati?
Mille grazie,
Maureen

melted
Explanation:
No, non credo si tratti di tempering (since this would be another word, i think), se tu conosci la terminologia, che delle volte e` una lingua apparte, e sai che e` cosi, OK, se no, non dovrebbe significare questo. Si direbbe che si trata di "Melted under high temperatures" "melted under big fire"..

Hooray, this time the site let me in. I stuck with fused, not melted or amalgamated, because I am pretty sure it refers to a further shaping treatment of the sheets of glass. That is not totally molten glass. Thanks, as before.

Note to Fabiana


Explanation:
Fabiana,
The site will not accept me as the one who asked the question, though I put the password in. What's wrong? Anyway, unless someone fixes this, I cannot give you the points, so I am just writing to thank you. You are surely right (that I was wrong), and after doing some more web searching I ended up using "fused at high temperatures", which refers to further shaping processes of the glass sheets. If someone has a better term, please write.
Thanks,
Maureen

amalgamated


Explanation:
I feel that the word expresses the meaning better than "fused" in this context, i.e.,
"amalgamated at a very high temperature".
