Float Glass

Float glass is a sheet of glass made by floating molten glass on a bed of molten metal, typically tin, although lead and various low melting point alloys were used in the past. This method gives the sheet uniform thickness and very flat surfaces. Float glass is the base glass used in all subsequent glass processing options. Reducing the iron content allows for more clarity in the glass.

Monolithic

Monolithic float glass consists of a single sheet of glass formed using the float glass manufacturing process. Monolithic glass is often modified for increased strength, improved insulating capability, and safety glazing requirements.

Low-iron

Low-iron glass is a virtually colorless float glass designed for high-end applications. The lower iron content of this float glass product provides high visible light transmittance and greater clarity. All low-iron glass has a subtle edge color, but is significantly lighter that traditional float glass.

Tinted

Tinted glass is manufactured using the same process as clear float glass, but with metal oxides added to create color in the glass. Body tinted float glass is heat absorbing, and provides a range of aesthetics to complement commercial or interior designs.

The most transparent low-iron glass available today – delivering remarkable clarity and a virtually colorless appearance. With a visible light transmission of 92%, Clearvision floods interior spaces with light and provides outstanding visibility for a range of applications.

AGC’s exclusive Solarshield product family offers high-quality tinted products for the commercial and residential markets, as well as the automotive sector. Available in an array of beautiful colors, these tinted glass solutions create an attractive exterior appearance while increasing air conditioning efficiency and comfort, reducing glare, and offering unobstructed views. Made using the float process, Solarshield tinted solutions offer perfectly flat, parallel surfaces and lend themselves to many processing options including single glazing, insulating glazing, tempering, and enameling.

Clear float glass is a beautiful, versatile choice when specialty glass is not needed. Clear solutions from AGC offer a wealth of product benefits including outstanding clarity, excellent color neutrality, and high levels of visibility and light transmission. Versatility is the reason why Clear float glass is the glass of choice for applications in the construction, decoration, automotive, and high-tech sectors.
