Starphire Glass And Mirror is Cooler Than A Polar Bear

`

Bear Glass offers Starphire low iron glass for special production runs, so be sure to ask us about it! Why choose Starphire low iron glass? The difference is clear…

Look at “regular” glass and you’ll notice a slight green tint (especially when viewing the edges) that becomes more noticeable when the glass is thicker. Often this is not an issue, but in many applications – such as glass tables and glass table tops, shop windows, entry doors or display cases – clarity becomes more important. And that’s where Starphire low iron glass is clearly better.

Starphire low iron glass is specially made for exceptional clarity, and will not dull or distort the true colors in the color spectrum. Whether it’s referred to as “extra clear, ” “water white” or “low iron, ” the glass is made to be crystal clear and virtually tint-free.

What makes Starphire low iron glass so pure and sparkling? One of the main ingredients in all glass is silica sand, which has naturally occurring iron oxides. These oxides are what cause the greenish tint in glass. But Starlite low iron glass is made from a high grade of silica sand that is almost completely free of iron oxides. By reducing the iron content you reduce the greenish tint and increase light transmission, brightness and clarity.

In fact, Starphire low iron glass can have as little as 10% of the iron content of regular glass, allowing it to transmit 91% of light, compared to 83% for regular glass.

Although the raw materials are different, Starphire low iron glass is manufactured the same way as regular glass, and can be pressed, cut, polished, tempered and otherwise worked the same way as well. It can be used wherever regular glass would be used, from interior and exterior applications in commercial buildings, to glass tables and glass table tops.

With such a brilliant, beautiful look, Bear Glass wants you to consider Starphire low iron glass for your special orders of glass tables and glass table tops.

Characteristics of Starphire glass and mirror

  • Nearly unaltered, neutral, warm reflection
  • Best clarity, truest color, and highest visible light
  • Color purity of desired glass coatings
  • Highest solar energy reflectance of any other acid-etched clear glass
