The modern glass industry is a major user of the platinum metals. When correctly used, platinum and its alloys are practically unaffected by continuous contact with molten glass but if reducing conditions are allowed to arise it is possible for reactions to occur which may lead to contamination. This article describes how such failures have been investigated in the Research Laboratories of Pilkington Brothers Limited and draws attention to the importance of avoiding reducing conditions in operation.
