Abrisa Technologies carries a large inventory of cost-effective solid colored glass for aesthetic use in the lighting and entertainment, architectural, and landscaping applications. The soda lime glass can be heat strengthened “tempered” for additional thermal shock resistance. The solid color glass can an be fabricated to any shape, drilled, sandblasted and screen printed.
The color is actually part of the composition of the glass and is produced by mixing various metal oxides into the glass at the time of manufacture. Solid colored glass is not meant to be utilized as a precision optic. If precise control of spectral bands or operation at high temperature is required, a dichroic filter will be a better option.
1/8” thick MR11 (1.370”) and MR16 (1.965”) diameter glass for halogen lights and LED fluorescent lamps and fixtures are stocked for quick order fulfillment. It is recommended that glass which will be exposed to temperatures over 300ºF use a dichroic filter as they can endure temperatures up to 375ºC.
Solid colored glass for decorative purposes and applications other than lighting can be custom ordered in dimensions up to 24” x 48” and in thicknesses up to 3mm. Heat tempering can be done for most colors on sheet sizes of up to 24” x 24” ad thickness of 3mm.
These solid color glass discs (MR11 and MR16) give lighting just the right hue to fit the mood desired.
