Our selected float glass is a universal economically priced high-quality technical glass with excellent optical characteristics. In particular, at smaller dimensions, the glass features a white appearance which is resulting from the iron reduced glass composition. Our selected float glass is applied in various technical and optical applications. CNC-processed selected floatglass partsThe excellent optical performance from the visible to the infrared range make the glass a very versatile material. It has almost no inclusions, a high purity, and proved to be able to substitute expensive glass materials in many optical applications in the past. The cost savings in such cases often were significant.

The production of thin and very thin glasses by the help of the high-quality micro float process guarantees a good optical flatness, an extremely low deviation from the nominal thickness within each batch, and a very low standard thickness tolerance. A large selection of standard thicknesses beginning at 0,4 mm plus a good surface quality allows an efficient fabrication of many optical components and optics based on this economically priced glass.
