Clear glass

PLANICLEAR® comes in a wide range of thicknesses suitable for a wide range of applications. For safety benefits, it may be toughened or laminated or silvered to create mirrors. It can also be used for screen printing, acid etching, decoration, sandblasting, lacquering, etc. High energy transmission for applications requiring the use of solar energy or a high gain in solar heat.

The glass and glazing sector has seen a trend towards clearer float glass substrates in recent years. This demand is driven by the need for a more neutral appearance on the architectural project as well as the need for improved passive energy gain on the residential market.

PLANICLEAR ®'s lower iron content decreases the absorption level - thus increasing the solar gain (g value). An increased passive gain in solar heat can increase a window's total energy balance.

PLANICLEAR® also serves a higher level of Light transmission (LT). This contributes to increase in the level of natural daylight and reduces the need for artificial lighting – creating a more comfortable environment.

PLANICLEAR ®'s lower iron content decreases green coloring levels so the appearance is clearer and more neutral. This contrast is particularly recognizable when viewing the edge of the glass.


PLANICLEAR ® can be used in applications which require a high degree of clarity and neutrality including:

  • Windows and doors
  • Mirrors
  • Laminated safety glass
  • Interior applications
  • Glass facades
  • Partitions


PLANICLEAR® is available in:

  • Jumbo size (PLF) up to 18000 mm x 3200 mm, DLF 2250 x 3210 mm, DLF 2000 x 3210 mm
  • Thicknesses: 2.9 - 3.9 - 5.9 - 8 - 10 - 12 - 15 - 19 mm
