AGC Glass Introduces Clearvision

New Low-Iron Glass Offers Unparalleled Light Transmission and Color Optimization

Alpharetta, GA. December 4, 2017—AGC, the world’s largest glass manufacturer, adds to its innovative line of products with Clearvision — a low-iron glass that offers the ultimate in neutrality, purity, and color enhancement.

Clearvision delivers 92% light transmission, more than any other glass product on the market. This makes it ideal for architectural applications requiring a high degree of transparency or color optimization. Even in its thickest iterations, Clearvision remains perfectly neutral.

Available in laminated, heat-treated, bent, silk-screened, or insulated configurations, Clearvision can be specified for interiors and exteriors — from distinct architectural elements like balustrades and floors, to entire building facades. When insulated, Clearvision’s double and triple glazing units provide high light transmission and maximize solar energy.

In addition to its commercial architecture applications, Clearvision is optimal for residential and industrial components such as frameless and heavy glass shower enclosures, custom tabletops, shelving, display cases, and more.

“After extensive research and development, we have created one of the purest glass products on the market,” says Mark Twente, Director of Marketing for AGC Glass North America. “Some trends come and go, but today’s demand for neutrality and luminosity in glass is one we are committed to serving. The design and performance possibilities with Clearvision are virtually unlimited.”

Clearvision can be specified in a wide range of thicknesses from 3mm to 12mm. Custom thicknesses such as 15mm and 19mm are available upon request.

Clearvision is also Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Silver, adding to AGC’s extensive offering of energy efficient and environmentally friendly products.
