We've been puzzling over your question for far too long! It is generally beyond the scope of our museum library to answer technical questions in detail (our library focuses more on the art and history of glass, with some technical information), but we do have a couple of technical bibliographies that may be helpful. I'm enclosing those and am going to suggestion you contact one of the following organizations for further information:

1)The Scholes Library at Alfred University, New York State College of Ceramics. They have a substantial collection of technical information about glass. Pat Lacourse answers technical reference questions (email:lacourpc@alfred.edu). Their reference desk number is: 607-871-2951. Their library catalog is available for searching on the web: http://scholes.alfred.edu.
