Significant weathering effects were observed only for the soda-lime-silicate glasses. In this case, the first stage of weathering, the formation of a low-density antireflection film, resulted in the spalling of the glass surface and severe degradation of the optical quality of the glass. Float glasses exhibited better weathering resistance on their tin-rich surfaces than on tin-poor surfaces.
