Float Glass is a versatile glass predominantly used in single and double pane windows and doors. It is made by flowing, soft glass being poured onto a bed on molten tin. This method gives the sheet uniform thickness and very flat surfaces.
Annealing of float glass is the process of controlled cooling to prevent residual stress in the glass and is an inherent part of the float glass manufacturing process.
Float glass can be cut, machined, drilled, edged and polished.
Float glass is a clear, distortion-free glass that can be produced in a wide range of sizes and thicknesses to suit any glass application. NYC Glass & Mirrors UltraClear / Low iron float glass increases light transmission and colour neutrality while reducing the greenish tint of standard glass.
Advantages of Clear Float Glass
- Smooth and flat surface, and good vision.
- Flexible size specifications to minimize cutting loss.
- Energy saving through good heat absorption which reduces the transmission of solar heat radiation.
- High value creation by color variety of building’s exterior appearance.
- Excellent optical performance
- Stable chemical properties
- Resistant to acid, alkaline and corrosion
- Substrata for each level of glass processing
