The strength and fatigue of float glass before and after enameling was analyzed. The role of tin penetration and enameling on the glass was determined by biaxial flexure test methods. A higher strength was observed for the air versus tin side of un-enameled float glass and was attributed to differences in flaw severity and population between the two surfaces. The tin side contained larger flaws than the air side, and strength of enameled glass was found to be lower than unenameled glass.
