Extra Clear Glass
Extra clear glass boasts of very little tint to the body of the glass. That it why it appears almost completely transparent. Visible light transmission of 92%
In comparison with standard clear glass, extra clear glass edge has a very slight crystal blue (or sometimes green) tint which makes this type of glass a choice of true perfectionists. Moreover, usual glass has a green hue to it: the problem is that the thicker the glass, greener is the glass.

In comparison with the previous one, iron content in an extra clear glass is less than 150 parts per million. This is the answer how this type of glass allows almost 92% of visible light to be transmitted and why millions of people all over the world choose extra clear glass which provides very clear view.
- Thanks to the low iron content, the reflective property of extra clear glass is decreased. Thus, allows maximum sunlight to pass (92%) through it and this is the quality many customers chase. It helps to eliminate the unnecessary need of using artificial lights.

- Extra clear glass can be also processed to produce other types of glasses: laminated glass, insulated glass units, frosted glass, ceramic printed glass. temperable glass as well as a float glass
- Together with light transmission, this type of glass provides more heat gain in comparison with float glass. It is a great benefits for climate which has low or sub-zero temperatures more than 6 months a year
