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.

Clear White Float Glass

Low iron float glass is much like clear float glass but is without the green tinge. This can be seen on the edge with a white colour given off.

Schott Borofloat®

Float-quality borosilicate glass with low thermal expansion and a degree of tolerance towards thermal shock and temperature gradient on and in the glass.

Borosilicate & Pyrex

Borosilicate glass is typically formed from silica and boron oxide constituents. Borosilicate glass has very low thermal expansion coefficient which makes resistant thermal shock more so than any common glass.
