Let there be light!
One key strengths of BOROFLOAT® glass is that it allows light to pass through freely without distortion. Due to the purity of its ingredients and unique material structure, our specialty float glass offers excellent light transmission in the visible wavelength range. Its high transparency in the near IR and UV range also means that BOROFLOAT® is the perfect specialty glass for high precision components and solutions used in the fields of optics, photonics and opto-electronics.
Exceptionally high transparency
Inherent fluorescence of BOROFLOAT® 33
Some materials have the ability to emit electromagnetic radiation after being activated by high frequency short-wave radiation. This property is referred to as fluorescence. It depends on the material’s purity and structural characteristics as well as the radiation’s excitation energy and excitation wavelength.
BOROFLOAT® 33 is a highly transparent glass with a much lower inherent fluorescence than soda-lime flat glass.
