Extra Clear Glass

Extra clear glass

Having worked as a glazier with over a decade of experience, I can confidently attest to the distinctive qualities and advantages of Extra Clear glass, a type of low-iron glass celebrated for its unparalleled transparency. The manufacturing process, which significantly reduces the iron content, effectively removes the typical greenish tinge often seen in conventional clear glass. This makes Extra Clear glass an exceptional choice for applications demanding high levels of clarity, such as showcase windows and glass storefronts.

What distinguishes Extra Clear Glass from regular clear glass?

Extra Clear glass offers a significant advantage over regular clear glass – its exceptional clarity. While regular float glass may have a slight greenish hue, Extra Clear glass is almost like a perfect crystal, providing unmatched clarity. This higher level of transparency is achieved by removing a significant portion of iron from the glass during the manufacturing process. Besides, Extra Clear glass edges are brilliantly polished, enhancing its aesthetic appeal.
