How much do you know about low iron glass


Ultra-clear glass is a kind of ultra-transparent low-iron glass, also known as low-iron glass, which is highly transparent glass. It is a new type of high-quality and multi-functional high-grade glass with a light transmittance can reach more than 91.5%, and has the characteristics of crystal clear, high-end and elegant, and is known as the "Crystal Prince" of the glass industry.

Low iron glass also has all the processability properties of high-quality float glass, and has excellent physical, mechanical and optical properties, and can be processed in various deep processes like other high-quality float glass. Unparalleled superior quality and product performance make low iron glass have broad application space and bright market prospects.

Low iron glass has the following characteristics:


1. Low self-explosion rate of glass


Since the raw materials of low iron glass generally contain less impurities such as NiS, and the fine control during the melting process of the raw materials, the low iron glass has a more uniform composition than ordinary glass, and its internal impurities are less,thus greatly reduces the chance of self-destruction after tempering.

2. High visible light transmission rate and good permeability


The visible light transmittance of low iron glass is greater than 91%, which is more transparent than ordinary glass. However the edges of ordinary clear glass will be greenish.

3. Large market, high technology content and strong profitability 

Low iron glass has relatively hightechnological content and difficult production control, and has stronger profitability than ordinary glass. The high quality determines its high price. The price of low iron glass is 1~2 times that of ordinary glass, and the cost is not much higher than that ordinary glass, but the technical barriers are relatively high, with high added value.


Application range of low iron glass:
