Today, float glass is the most widely used form of glass in consumer products. Due to both its high quality with no additional polishing required. This makes it ideal for a variety of applications such as
Automobile glass (e.g. windshields, windows, mirrors)
Furniture (e.g. in tables and shelves)
Windows and doors.
Most forms of specialized glass such as toughened glass, frosted glass, laminated safety glass and soundproof glass consist of standard float glass that has been further processed.
Low Iron Glass
Low-iron glass is a type of high-clarity glass that is made from silica with very low amounts of iron. This low level of iron removes the greenish-blue tint that can be seen especially on larger and thicker sizes of glass.Low-iron glass is used for aquariums, display cases, some windows, and other applications where clarity is desired.
This film coating reflects radiant infrared energy, which is meant to keep the energy on the same side it originates from while still letting in visible light. So when the sun shines, a Low-E coated window reflects a lot of that unwanted energy back towards the sun instead of letting the heat pass through the glass
Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), between its two or more layers of glass. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces.
