Low Iron Float Glass for PV Panels

As indicated by its name, the low iron float glass for PV panels is especially developed for solar energy industry, and it is a kind of soda-lime glass with high transmittance.

Features
1. Our product shows even internal stress, which makes it very easy to cut the glass into several pieces. Meanwhile, it is also suitable for tempering, hot bending and other treatments.
2. For the glass whose thickness is 3mm or thinner, the transmittance of visible light is not less than 91.8%, and the direct transmittance of sunlight is 90.7% or higher, meeting the requirements of ISO9050 standard. This is attributable to the low iron content and unique chemical composition, which also avoid spontaneous breakage after tempering.

Applications
Our low iron float glass has found a wide range of applications. For example, it can work as the deposit substrate for TCO glass, as the cover for CIGS or CIS, as the flat plate solar collector, or as the solar reflection mirror. Aside from these, it is also applicable for glass furniture, building partitions, store windows, exhibition rooms, glass curtain walls, glass guardrails and escalators, building doors and windows, etc.

Major Parameters
1. Thickness range: 1.8-4.0mm
2. Regular size: 2440×3660mm
3. Max. size: 3300×6000mm
