STARPHIRE® Glass Information

The clarity of Starphire glass actually becomes more apparent as the glass gets thicker, maintaining a pleasing azure-green aesthetic. The image below demonstrates how the thickness of the glass can affect the greenish hue of traditional clear float glass in comparison to Starphire glass.

The Edge of Traditional Clear Glass

When it comes to edge color for glass, some things are never as clear as they appear in the showroom. When you order glass for a shower enclosure, the edge color gradually changes according to the thickness and overall dimensions of the glass. Look at the edge of almost any piece of standard clear furniture glass and you’ll notice a green cast. That effect is exaggerated as the glass becomes thicker or longer. This phenomenon is demonstrated by the chart below, which shows how the greenish hue of conventional clear glass becomes increasingly dark as the length or the thickness of the glass grows. In addition to getting darker as it gets thicker, edge color may also be affected by other factors, such as the amount of ambient lighting or the way a shaped edge is contoured.

The Edge of Starphire Glass

If a dark green or black edge color is undesirable, Starphire glass is the industry’s most transparent glass, thanks to a proprietary glass formulation and manufacturing process that gives this extraordinary product a jewel-like blue-edge not available from any other commercial glass product. As you can see from the chart below, even at a length of 130 inches,Starphire glass edge maintains a pleasing blue-green aesthetic that brings more light into interior space while offering unmatched levels of brightness, color fidelity, clarity and visual excitement.
