Automotive Glass – Strainoptics Polarimeters & Polariscopes for Windshields, Sunroofs, and Sidelites
Strainoptics manufactures a complete line of manually operated and automated equipment for measuring surface stress and edge stress in annealed, heat-strengthened, and tempered automotive glass. Please click on the product photo to learn more about that specific instrument.
The GASP® polarimeter is the instrument recommended by ASTM and other international standards groups for measuring surface stress in heat-treated, tempered, or annealed glass. Conforms to European EN-12150 mandates!
For precise quantitative measurement of residual stresses in automotive glass.
Automatically measures, graphs, and stores edge stress data objectively and accurately.
Portable Strain Viewer (polariscope) for qualitative stress pattern observation on a small scale.
RPSV-100 Reflection Strain Viewer
(for observing non-uniform stress distribution and tensile imbalance.)
Polarimeter for quantitatively measuring edge stress in automotive glass (to verify temper quality). Measures both tension & compression.
