Why is ultra-white glass so expensive?

Is there a glass with a low self-explosion rate, consistent color, high visible light transmittance, good permeability using advanced technology? Twenty years ago, it was a question I must answer you: how could it be?

But with the innovation of technology, original incredible technology has become a reality. Such glass has now been used everywhere in our daily buildings. It makes you often mistakenly think that there is no obstruction in front, ultra-white glass, aka low iron glass. Let me explain why it is expensive among other regular glass.

What is the low iron glass?

Ultra-white glass, also known as low-iron glass and high-transparent glass, is ultra-transparent low-iron glass. It can reach a high light transmittance of more than 91.5%, has crystal clear, known as the “Crystal Prince” of the glass family. It is a high-grade glass variety of high-quality, multi-functional features.

Ultra-white glass has superior physical, mechanical, and optical properties. At the same time, it has all the processing properties of high-quality float glass to allow for various deep processing.

Such features make ultra-white glass having a broad application space and bright market prospects. At present, only a few companies in the world master the production technology of ultra-white glass. Therefore, using ultra-white glass is a symbol of the luxury identity of the building.

How to identify ultra-white glass

Recommended tools: camera, mobile phone, flashlight

Testing method

  1. Use a photographed mobile phone flash function to check if it has a substantial degree of lighting from the side of the glass.
  2. The genuine super white cylinder can see the seam of the lower glass by light from the cutting surface of the glass. You can see the bottom of the cylinder. And the unqualified super-white cylinder, the surface is green, and the light transmittance is poor.

What’s the advantage of ultra-white glass

  1. The self-explosion rate of glass is low in the ultra-white glass raw material; the internal impurity is minor due to the fine control of raw material melting, which dramatically leads to the low chance of self-explosion after being temperance.
  2. Color consistency Since the iron content in the raw material is only 1/10 or less of the ordinary glass, the green band of the super white glass is less absorbed in the glazing of the visible ultra-white glass, ensuring the consistency of the glass color.
  3. The visible light transmittance is high, the permeability is greater than 91.5%, with clear crystal quality. With ultra-white glass, the exhibition product is much clearer in people’s eyes, and it can highlight the authentic original appearance of the exhibit products.
  4. High market, strong profitability, production control is complex, and relatively strong profitability. The higher quality determines its higher price, which is 1 to 2 times the ordinary glass. The cost is not instead that high as regular glass. The technical barrier is relatively high, with a high value.

The primary category of ultra-white glass

Solar ultra-white patterned glass

Solar ultra-white pressure glass components can maximize solar cells’ radiation heat and significantly increase the photoelectric conversion efficiency of solar cells. This glass can simultaneously resist the radiation of the solar ultraviolet rays, but the light transmittance does not decrease, which is more efficiently extending the cover glass’s life.

Ultra-white transparent flat glass

Ultra-white transparent flat glass (commonly known as “crystal glass”) is a new type of transparent flat glass product developed and manufactured, which uses high technical means to oxidize during the preferred and processing of raw materials. Iron is effective in plate glass, having a very low iron compound in a fuse and forming process of the flat glass. Ultra-white transparent flat glass has similar appearance characteristics with colorless crystals. No matter from the front or the side, there is no green visual effect as the generic flat glass, and it is also better in the level of transparency.

Why Digital printed glass should be used in curtain walls?

Every year, there are nearly one billion deaths of migrating birds collide with windows and glass curtain walls. With the continuous increase using of glass curtain walls, the impact is becoming huge.

What’s the solution to protect migrating birds? Why is the normal glass dangerous to them? Let’s dive in.

Glass characteristics – why it is dangerous to birds

Three characteristics of glass make it dangerous to birds:

  1. Reflective: Especially in the daytime, the glass will reflect the normal scene, causing the bird to hit the glass.
  2. Transparency: Also at some time in the daytime, the glass is not so reflective, birds will try to pass through the glass.
  3. Beacon effect: Buildings with active lighting are particularly harmful to birds that are active at night, especially under rain or hazy conditions. Birds descend to a lower height to maintain their position, and they are attracted by the lights of buildings with tragic consequences.

The American Bird Conservation Association has researched and developed guidelines for glass designs to protect birds. These designs have been scientifically proven to be a visual deterrent. The bird anti-strike glass pattern is defined as a pair of horizontal elements (separated such as dots, lines, outlines, etc.) by no more than 2 inches with vertical elements separated by no more than 4 inches. Birds in flight see these visually and will avoid collision accidents.

Digital printed glass can protect birds

Digital printed glass provides unlimited design possibilities while protecting birds. This is a fast, accurate, and cost-effective solution, especially for graphics that contain more complex designs, more colors, and non-repetitive printing on the entire panel.

Studies have shown that birds can perceive colors, which means that colored and random patterns will greatly reduce the number of collisions. These inks can be applied to the inside of the glass (face 2), but printing on face 1 is still the most powerful solution.

Fortunately, the face 1 surface ink can also be used in the digital world, which allows us to print complex designs on the outer surface. Just like screen printing inks, this high-performance solution reduces glare and reflections on the glass, providing a safer barrier for birds. The design patterns are endless, and it is easy to adapt to the required standards.

Building glass performance and ROOFLIGHT advantage

We have always been asked how about the glass performance produced by Blue-sky safety glass, so this article is the answer to such kinds of questions.

With perfect quality of manufacturing, the glazed external walls are featured with maximized natural light within rooms, reducing energy costs and improving the energy using efficiency. Excellent thermal insulation is also an important part of the performance, low U values delivered by our insulated glass ensure impressive low energy performance, which helps the development achieve the Code for Sustainable Homes Standard.

We have exported many shipping containers of glass skylight in recent years. I think our skylight flat roof price is competitive while the importing cost is not too much, as we all know the glass skylight retail price maybe 10 times compared with the quotation from Chinese supplier like us, also our glass rooflight is competitive in low U value (Triple glazed U value is 0.8 even Quad glazed is 0.58).

Established in 2000, we have exported large quantity glass products for the past years, we have attended Glasstec glass industrial trade this year, we are ready to serve you with focusing on branded glass products, being Strategic Partner with Pilkington etc., which mainly supply building glass to famous real estate company in China, as the market demands of building glass are huge but requirements are so strict, we can’t get approval from them unless we are of top quality in the industry.

If you have any problems for building glass and ROOFLIGHT, please feel free to contact me:
