Low iron glass

Extra Clear or low iron glass is manufactured by removing a large proportion of the glass iron content which gives ordinary clear glass a slight green tone, particularly noticeable on the edges. Ultra-clear glass is ideal for displaying truer colors when printed or just offering a clearer vison.

Low iron glass is also named super clear glass, or ultra-clear glass that offers the highest possible levels of light transmission and visual clarity.

Low iron glass has distinctive clarity that is achieved by using sand with much lower iron oxide content in the batch mix when the float glass is manufactured.

Extra clear low iron glass can be used to stunning effect in museum display cases, balustrade systems, frameless shower screens, and furniture where a processed glass edge is exposed, and clarity of vision is desired.

Low iron glass is also the preferred glass option for paint and print applications such as PurArt™ digital printed glass and Ceraphic™ ceramic fritted glass for a true representation of color.

Available in laminated, toughened, and toughened laminated form.
