Enlightened glass with exceptional transparency
The use of glass in architecture and design is becoming more and more prevalent, and Pilkington Optiwhite™ is at the very forefront of making it possible.

The reason for this is the sheer variety of benefits which Pilkington Optiwhite® can offer, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of applications. Pilkington Optiwhite® is a low-iron extra clear float glass with very high light transmission. It is practically colourless, and the green cast inherent to other glasses is not present. It is therefore ideal for use where glass edges are visible or where a neutral colour is desired. As its light transmission is higher than clear float glass, it is perfect for applications where transparency and purity of colour are desired.

Low-iron glass is made using carefully selected raw materials with a naturally low iron content. The melting process is tightly controlled to ensure that the product properties remain consistent, making Pilkington Optiwhite® the leading low-iron glass on the market. 

Available in thicknesses between 2 mm and 19 mm, the widest range on the market, Pilkington Optiwhite® provides increased design flexibility. When combined with other Pilkington products, it can offer additional benefits such as thermal insulation or self-cleaning. We have been producing the Pilkington Optiwhite® Range for over twenty-five years with high consistency and quality, making this low-iron, extra clear glass highly valued by our customers whether as exterior or interior glazing, furniture or a wide range of other applications.
