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.
