Annealing Temperature

09/16/09 – Annealing Temperature – The annealing temperature is also known as the annealing point. This stress-relief point is reached during the cooling down phase of glass. Glass has become too solid to be distorted but is still soft enough to release any built up stress. Allowing the piece to soak or be held at this temperature allows the glass temperature to even out through the piece and to release the stress.
