About Low Iron Glass

Low iron glass or Starphire Glass is ultra clear and provides a higher degree of transparency than clear float glass. This optimum clarity is achieved by removing most of the iron oxide content used to produce glass. The improved clarity of low iron glass compared with clear float glass is barely discernable unless the two types of glass are viewed against a coloured background.

Characteristics

Starphire Ultra-Clear glass is clearer. It have found that reducing the iron and using a new raw materials formula increases light transmission and reduces the greenish tint in clear glass that is most apparent when viewed from the edge. This green tint becomes more visible as regular float glass gets thicker. The result is pure, sparkling, very clear glass.

Applications

Starphire Ultra-Clear glass can be used anywhere clear float glass can be used. It can be laminated, toughened, and is treated exactly the same as clear float glass. Designed for applications where optimum clarity is desired, it’s this attribute that makes low iron glass sought after by designers and architects, when the green tinge in clear float glass is undesired – primarily in light colour painted splashbacks.

High light transmission and brilliant surfaces make this glass ideal for colored glass applications, frame-less glass installations such as shower doors, glass doors and glass table tops.

Benefits of using low iron glass

Substantially reduced green tinge. This eliminates colour distortion apparent in clear float glass. When used in splashbacks it gives more accurate colour matching.

Enhanced external viewing that is gives glass the highest degree of visible light transmission.
