nano gas or air or nitrogen bubbles can be created in glass and metals and plastics to make them lighter without losing strength;

note; in glass the bubbles cannot be seen with the naked eye; and they add to the thermal qualities of glass considerably;

nano gas bubble technology for aircraft and space metals saves enormous amount of weight without losing strength;

how is done? Well an ultra sonic vibrator agitates energy voids within the metal or glass within a chamber that is a semi vacuum; a little amount of air or nitrogen is introduced above the hot molten glass or hot molten metal etc, so as the energy level subsides in the glass or metal ie it chills trapping the hot tiny energy voids; as it cools to room temperature these tiny voids will become nano sized approx 50-100 nano metres in dia’ because of molecular pressure shrinkage of the parent material, ie the glass or metal or plastic or ceramic or concrete spun pipes or blocks; of which the thermal value is enormous;
