Glass is amongst the most inert of common substances. Factors which influence its chemical resistance are: chemical composition; contact time; temperature; pH of attacking agent; previous history of the glass, i.e. mode of production; annealing; special treatments; and storage conditions. These influences are not necessarily to the same degree for different types of glass.
