Pilkington is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Pilkington Optiwhite™, the extra-clear, low-iron float glass that provides the perfect solution for a wide variety of applications.

Pilkington Optiwhite™, has been a popular solution for architects, specifiers and designers for the past quarter of a century, including high rise buildings, airports and museums across the globe. During that time, it has continuously been refined and improved, and the expertise gained over the years helps ensure the consistent high quality of the glass produced today.

With its ability to achieve greater brilliance and transparency, low-iron Pilkington Optiwhite™, is the perfect solution for exterior glazing, allowing a clear and true representation of colors when viewed through the glass. These same qualities also help create bright interiors full of natural daylight, making it the product of choice for buildings where transparency and brightness are of paramount importance.

Unsurprisingly, these qualities have made it popular with retail and museum projects throughout its 25 years on the market. Its exceptional clarity makes it ideal for internal glazing applications as well, where laminated safety and security glass is required. The award winning Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio used Pilkington Optiwhite™, for the interior stair wells (see photo), balustrades and boxes.

More and more designers are also finding Pilkington Optiwhite™, is the best solution for applications where glass is used as a design feature, such as glass tables, furniture, doors, display cabinets, shelving and shower enclosures. Paint can be applied to the surface of the glass and the clarity of the glass lets the true colors be displayed.
