Stress-tester

Ed Hoy’s International presents the Hotline Stress Tester, a new tool to help determine proper coefficient compatibility. In order to fuse pieces of glass together, they must have an equal coefficient of expansion (COE) to prevent breakage. When two different COEs are fused together, stress is added to the glass. Stress due to incompatibility will not allow glass to properly anneal, since one surface will be in compression and the other will be in tension. In time the glass will fracture. Use the Hotline Stress tester to ensure perfect results every time. Visit the company’s website for detailed product information.

Uroboros-LemongrassOpal

Uroboros Glass presents two new System 96® rod colors. Kicking off what the company expects to be an ongoing rollout of new rod colors this year are Lemongrass Opal (RO-2262-96) and Pewter Opal (RO-2802-96). Lemongrass provides a great contemporary statement when used with the company’s new Payne’s Gray, Chambray Gray, or Plum Opals. Pewter Opal comes in sheet or frit forms and can be partnered with just about any other color to soften transitions. It also richens and deepens colors around it and makes a great choice for rocks or animal hides. 503‑284‑4900  www.uroboros.com
