Due to its Unique Properties, Hydrogen has Many Applications in Glass Manufacturing:

Cutting and Polishing
To supplement or replace air-fuel combustion applications to increase heat transfer and result in cutting or polishing glass more efficiently
Heat Treating
To supplement or replace air-fuel combustion applications for annealing, tempering, strengthening and toughening to increase heat transfer and result in heat treating glass more efficiently
Melting and Softening
To supplement or replace air-fuel combustion applications to increase heat transfer and result in melting or softening glass faster
Atmosphere Control
To prevent detrimental reactions such as the formation of glass defects and help protect the chambers/equipment where glass is formed
