The type of glass is usually called float glass, the one that can also be used for windows. The second type of glass is laminated glass, has 2 to 3 layers of bounds that when it is torn, the resin will stand still.
Also, there is wired glass, which usually used for industrial buildings. It has wire mesh. The last, we have safety glass. In making this kind of glass, the glass is heated until it is softened. This type of glass is used for windows in basement or first floor. Then, now we talk about mirror. As we have mentioned before, mirrors are made with glass. Some may call mirror as reflective mirror since it has flat surface and we can see ourselves in it. Mirrors are used in many places such as home, stores ad so many buildings.
