The Yeti wine glass is a red wine glass made by combining a red-wine-shaped iron ore with a thin sheet of iron-plated glass.
The glass has been created by adding a thin layer of iron oxide on top of the glass, which allows the iron to pass through the glass without causing it to crack.
The iron-oxide is used to seal the glass and prevents the iron from passing through it.
To create this glass, the team used a process known as electroplating, which is used in many types of ceramics to coat and seal objects, including metals.
Electroplating is a process in which a chemical reaction takes place within a chemical composition, producing a new compound or structure that can be used as a material for future production.
The team found that they could make a glass of Yeti Wine using electroplated iron oxide.
The process used a method known as pyrolysis, which produces an iron-rich compound known as a copper sulfate that forms a new structure, such as a new metal.
“The process is relatively simple and cheap, and is a cheap way to make a new material in a chemical process,” said Professor Steve O’Connor, of the University of Sydney, who led the research.
“We’ve done a really good job in terms of scale, in terms and speed.”
The team used their Yeti Glass to create a glass that is just about two millimetres thick.
The amount of iron in the glass was around 0.5 milligrams per cent, which was more than enough to make it about three millimetre thick.
“There’s no real need to go through all that trouble in order to make the glass,” Professor O’Connor said.
The scientists used a thin iron oxide layer on top to create the glass.
It is now being used in other research, and has even been used in the film industry to create films.
“It’s just a beautiful example of a practical process,” Professor Michael Dickson, a professor of physics at Monash University in Melbourne, said.
“This is the first time we’ve seen this technique in a material that’s more complex than iron oxide.”
Professor Dickson said the process of electroplatting could be used to produce a variety of materials with iron.
“In the future we might use this process to make composites that have higher strength, so that they can be stronger than a standard glass,” he said.
