Glassware In Lighting Industries

Different industries have different needs when it comes to glassware. The lighting industry is no different, as there are a few specific types of glass that are commonly used in light fixtures and lamps.

Knowing which type of glass to use for your project can help you achieve the desired look and feel.

One common type of glass used in lighting is clear float glass. This type of glass has a smooth surface and consistent thickness, making it ideal for use in transparent or translucent applications.

Clear float glass is also often used in reflectors and diffusers, as it provides optimal light transmission.

Clear float glass is produced by pouring molten glass onto a bed of molten tin. As the glass floats on the surface of the tin, it forms a flat sheet with even thickness. Once cooled, the sheet of glass is cut to size and finished according to customer specifications.

Another popular option for lighting applications is opal glass. Opal glass is white or milk-colored, and opaque due to the presence of small bubbles throughout the glass.

This type of glass diffuses light well, making it ideal for use in lampshades and other fixtures where soft, even light is desired. Opal glass gets its milky color from the addition of minerals during manufacturing.

These minerals interact with light to scatter it evenly throughout the glass, giving opal Glass its unique diffuse quality.
