Glass Colours and Tints
Glass Colours and Tints, we often have individuals requesting more information about coloured glass. For the most part, we don’t use glass that has been colourised– but the types of glass we handle do vary in their purity.
A great deal of the glass that is manufactured today is made to suit budgets, and often this typical glass is the one which is used for day-to-day Frameless Glass pool fences. On the other hand, if you are looking out for a greater look, or added strength, Absolut Custom glass can help you – there are of course types of glass that can appear to be much clearer than the others.
The clear glass which we most commonly use on the Gold Coast are Starphire, UltraClear, Optiwhite, Starwhite and Krystal Klear just to name a few.
Exactly what is the difference?
Generally, the process of producing this very clear glass starts in the manufacturing system. Normal toughened glass will commonly have a slight green tint to it. This is not usually obvious to the naked eye when looking straight at a panel. It becomes more obvious when you look down a side of the glass, this is where it may look fairly green.
often to the untrained eye, all the glass will look clear, unless you put a piece of a style of ultra-clear glass up next to the standard glass. These sorts of Ultra clear glass are an end result of the manufacturer lowering the amount of iron content in the glass.
Lots of people don’t often think about iron in glass, but it is an element that is an extremely important component of the manufacturing process with glass. And to create this low iron content glass, they usually use a Silica-rich process instead– silica being an element found in sand.
There are some fantastic positive aspects to this kind of glass, and not just the aesthetic appeal. We have in fact seen a significant growth in the manufacture of ultra-clear styles of glass as a result of the solar power industry. Because this sort of glass can hold heat longer it is the popular choice for solar panel glass. This says that we will keep seeing manufacturing costs reduce later on as a result of this increase in demand.
