Glass

Instrument Plastics offers a range of glasses which can be machined to size.  We can also provide a wide range of laminated solutions. 

Float Glass & Low Ion Glass (Water white glass)

  • Typically made from soda Lime glass, or Low Ion Glass (Water white glass)

Benefits:

  • A cost effective solution 
  • High visible light transmittance 
  • Chemical and scratch resistance 
  • Can be easily laminated to offer greater durability and impact resistance

Maximum window size - 2000 x 1200mm (78 x 47’’)

Range of thicknesses - 0.8mm, 1.1mm, 1.6mm, 2.0mm, 3.0mm, 4.0mm, 6.00mm
(0.03’’, 0.04’’, 0.06’’, 0.08’’, 0.12’’, 0.16’’, 0.24’’)

Colours - Clear and neutral 

Edge finishes - Instrument plastics can offer a range of glass finishes. These include clean-cut, flat ground, bevelling and polished. 


Anti-reflective glass 

Anti-reflection coatings dramatically reduces reflections by a factor of ten to less than 0.5%. 

Maximum window size - 1100 x 1580mm 

Range of thicknesses - 1.0mm, 2.0mm, 3.0mm, 4.0mm 
(0.03’’, 0.07’’, 0.11’’0.15’’)

Other thicknesses available by optical lamination. 


Non-Glare Etched Glass

  • Instrument plastics can also supply with Glass with an acid etched surface. 

Benefits

  • An ideal solution for a range of displays 
  • A cost effective solution

Maximum window size - 1600 x 920mm

Range of thicknesses - 1.1mm, 1.6mm, 2.0mm, 3.0mm, 4.0mm

Other thicknesses available by optical lamination. 


Thermally hardened and toughened Glass

Our thermally hardened glass is twice as strong as standard tempered glass and five times stronger than untempered glass. 

Benefits

  • Can be used in extreme and challenging environments. Moreover hardened and toughened glass has a high impact resistance.
  • Added safety
  • Can be used when there is a high temperature differential between the two faces.  

Thicknesses available 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, and 19mm.


ITO Glass


IR Blocking Laminated Glass

This is a clear glass lamination which maintains high visible light transmission while blocking infrared heat. This is non-metallic and neutral in colour.

Key properties 

  • Reduces solar radiation by up to 34%  with minimal reduction of visiblelight
  • Multilayer film selectively blocks infrared light, thus reducingheat
  • Available in Glass orPolycarbonate
  • Neutral in colour, low reflectivity, lowabsorption
  • Available with AR / ITO coatings, tints and alternative finishes
  • Corrosion free, non-metallictechnology
  • No interference with radionfrequencies
