Low-iron glass – clearly different
Standard clear glass is actually far from clear. That’s why we at Pride Splashbacks use Pilkington OptiWhite. From the moment you see it, you’ll know what true clarity really looks like. The virtual absence of colour makes OptiWhite glass the natural choice when neutral colour and clarity count.
OptiWhite glass is manufactured with reduced iron content – low-iron glass is clearer. Scientists have found that reducing the iron and using a new raw materials formula increases light transmission and reduces the greenish tint in clear glass that is most apparent when viewed from the edge. This green tint becomes more visible as regular float glass gets thicker.
The result is pure, sparkling, very clear glass.
So when we apply what ever colour to the glass the colour becomes a lot clearer and sharper to the eye, thus giving a better finish to the Kitchen or Bathroom glass Splashbacks.
The stunning clarity of OptiWhite glass makes it an obvious choice for kitchen glass Splashbacks, atriums, skylights, doors and entranceways, display cases and storefronts. OptiWhite can be tempered, laminated and painted just like regular float glass and can be used virtually anywhere regular float glass can.
This is why we use OptiWhite in all Splashback creations only to give the best quality colour/image/design, this makes the finish crystal clear and means we can match virtually any colour.
OptiWhite provides a dramatic improvement when used in toughened glass applications, the typical result when toughening conventional clear float glass was colour distortion and a reduction of visible light transmission as the laminate thickness increased. OptiWhite adds distortion-free vision to the strength and security of Toughened glass for unparalleled performance.
