Float Glass

Float glass is made from floating molten glass on top of a bed of molten metal (usually tin). This creates consistency flat surfaces and uniform thickness. Float glass is typically made from soda lime glass.
Application: Float glass is typically used for modern windows because of its flat non distortive surface.
Clear float glass is transparent, however when tilted on edge it possess a slight green tinge, but when viewed from face on it is colourless. Clear float glass has a very high visible light transmittance and acts as a great source for natural daylight.
Application: Clear float glass is used primarily for its high visible light transmittance. Common uses include:

  • Mirrored glass
  • Laminated glass
  • Furniture
  • Display counters
  • Home DIY
  • Lighting

Specs: Visible light transmittance 89%, Visible light reflective 8%

Thicknesses we hold in stock range from 0.5 to 25mm, all of which can be heat-strengthened and toughened.
