Low iron toughened glass
What is low iron content glazing?
Low iron glass is a variation of float glass that has a high level of transparency- also known as extra clear, ultra-clear and super white glass. The glass, as its name suggests features very low iron content in its production. One of the main ingredients in all glass is silica sand and low iron glass is produced from a higher grade of this sand that is almost completely free of iron oxides.
How is low iron glass different to normal toughened glass?
The low iron glass offers a high level of light transmittance which is most noticeable on its edges – normal toughened glass has a dark green edge whereas the low iron option is more translucent. The green edge on toughened glass becomes much more noticeable as the glass thickness increases and this is why low-iron glass is very popular on structural frameless glass balustrades.
