Extra-Heavy Starphire Glass
Heavy Glass The clearest—and thickest—glass on the market Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass by Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG glass) can transform your heavy glass applications from attractive to sensational by adding sparkling clarity and unsurpassed color fidelity compared to standard clear glass. Vitro Glass makes Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass in a variety of thicknesses, from ¼-inch (6 mm) up to ¾-inch (19 mm). With its signature blue edge, Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass is the ideal choice for a wide range of extra-heavy glass applications, including: Entrances and Storefronts Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass provides an entrance glazing option that redefines elegance brilliantly. It is the ideal solution to make your entrance or storefront sparkle, and let the true colors of products, displays and logos shine through. Lobbies and reception areas become breathtaking with the uncommon brightness of Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass. And Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass doors set a new standard thanks to their jewel-like clarity and sparkling blue edges. Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass provides maximum brightness for entryways with 7 percent higher visible light transmittance (VLT) than ordinary clear glass (in ½-inch glass thickness). Its amazing clarity and color fidelity show products as they really are without the greening and distortion of conventional clear glass, particularly as thickness increases. And because of its absence of color, Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass can be laminated in multiple layers and thicknesses to provide strength and protection for applications such as jewelry storefronts.
