Low iron glass is specially made for exceptional clarity, and will not dull or distort the true colors in the color spectrum. Whether it’s referred to as “extra clear,” “water white” or “low iron,” the glass is manufactured to be crystal clear and virtually tint-free. Low iron glass is made from a high grade of silica sand that is almost completely free of iron oxides. By reducing the iron content you reduce the greenish tint, while increasing light transmission, brightness and clarity.  In fact, low iron glass can have as little as 10% of the iron content of regular glass, allowing it to transmit 91% of light, compared to 83% for regular glass. Although the raw materials are different, low iron glass is manufactured the same way as regular glass and can be pressed, cut, polished, tempered, laminated, painted and otherwise worked the same way as well. Low iron glass can be utilized for almost any application.
