As the pH of the water close to the glass surface rises, the silicate structure dissolves.
Researchers transferred atom-thick layers of graphene onto both sides of rectangular samples of glass and made an evaluation using water immersion tests, which lasted for 120 days. The results revealed an increase in surface roughness and deformity, as well as a decrease in strength. On the other hand, both the fracture strength and surface roughness of the single- and double-layer graphene-coated glasses remained unchanged.
Glass is one of the most groundbreaking technologies on the planet, with its remarkable flexibility and unique technological capabilities, glass is responsible for various cultural and scientific advances. .
