Extra clear float glass
The use of glass in architecture and design is becoming more and more prevalent, and Pilkington Optiwhite™ is at the very forefront of making it possible.
The reason for this is the sheer variety of benefits which Pilkington Optiwhite™ can offer, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of applications. Pilkington Optiwhite™ is a low iron extra clear float glass with very high light transmittance. It is practically colorless, and the green cast inherent to other glasses is not present. It is therefore ideal for use where glass edges are visible or where a neutral color is desired. As its light transmittance is higher than clear float glass, it is perfect for applications where transparency and purity of color are desired.
Low iron glass is made using carefully selected raw materials with a naturally low iron content. The melting process is tightly controlled to ensure that the product properties remain consistent, making Pilkington Optiwhite™ the leading low iron glass on the market.
Available in thicknesses between 3.2 mm and 15 mm, the widest range on the market, Pilkington Optiwhite™ provides increased design flexibility. When combined with other Pilkington products, it can offer additional benefits such as thermal insulation or self-cleaning.
