float glass glass panel / for interior / transparent
When you first see low iron glass, you will notice the distinct difference to normal float glass. The color is clear, free from any green tinge that is so apparent on glass, especially when seen sideways as this picture clearly demonstrate.
Low iron Glass is sold under many brand names. The product is generally the same with the same main key ingredients. One of these main key ingredients used to manufacture float glass is Silica sand that has naturally occurring iron oxides which gives glass a greenish tint. The thicker glass is, the more noticeable the green tint. A special silica sand is available that has significantly lower amounts of iron oxides present and therefore the green tint disappears. The result is a glass that is clearer, increases light transmission and is brighter. We have not put a brand name to the glass. Other companies have, however, we have chosen to stick with the basics and offer the product as it is manufactured. We call it by its known name and that is low iron glass.
