More Information

Our Tinted Glass products are produced by small additions of metal oxides to the float or rolled glass composition. These small additions color the glass bronze, green, blue or grey but do not affect the basic properties of the glass except for changes in the solar energy transmittance. The color is homogeneous throughout the thickness.

Features & Specifications

  • Most float glass products contain small amounts of iron oxide which produce a green tint usually only perceived when the glass pane is viewed ‘on edge’.
  • Additional iron oxide is introduced to produce green tint, cobalt oxide for grey tint and selenium oxide for bronze tint.
  • To produce a blue tint additional cobalt oxide is added to the float glass composition.
  • These products are perceived as giving weak colors by transmitted light. They do not produce high or significantly colored reflectance. Usually their principal external visual characteristic is their lower light transmittance.
