FAQ

What is the difference between toughened glass and Low Iron glass?

Toughened glass has a slight green tint, which comes from the iron content of the toughening process. With regular toughened glass, white displays a slight green tint, yellow becomes green, pink becomes grey, blue becomes green. Glassboards of darker colours, like black or red, are not effected by the green tint.

Low Iron glass is toughened glass that has been processed to remove the slight blue/green tinge that is associated with regular toughened glass. This tinge alters the appearance of some colours. So white becomes slightly blue/green, and yellow becomes green etc. However Low Iron glass has no tint, so white appears ‘whiteboard white’ etc. See the video
