Are there many different Colours of Glass?
Whenever we carry out quotes for Frameless Glass pool fences In the Gold Coast we generally have individuals asking about coloured glass. For the most part, we don’t use glass that has been colourised– but the kinds of glass we handle do vary in their clarity.
A great deal of the glass that is manufactured today is made to fit budgets, and often this normal 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 naturally types of glass that can appear to be much clearer than the others.
The clear glass which we most often use on the Gold Coast are Starphire, UltraClear, Optiwhite, Starwhite and Krystal Klear just to mention a few.
Just what is the difference?
Actually, the process of producing this very clear glass starts in the manufacturing process. Normal toughened glass will generally have a slight green tint to it. This is not always obvious to the naked eye when looking directly at a panel. It becomes more evident when you look at a border of the glass, this is where it may look rather green.
Quite 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 kinds of Ultra clear glass are a result of the manufacturer decreasing the amount of iron content in the glass.
Lots of people don’t often imagine iron in glass, but it is an aspect that is an extremely important portion 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 strengths to this sort of glass, and not just the visual appeal. We have really seen a big growth in the manufacture of ultra-clear styles of glass through the solar panel industry. Because this type of glass can hold heat longer it is the recommended choice for solar panel glass. This says that we will keep seeing production costs reduce later on because of this increase in demand.
