To mark our fresh new look and celebrate the 150th anniversary of the periodic table of elements we have released a glass-specific periodic table of elements.
The unique periodic table highlights the elements commonly
used in glass manufacturing, while a graphical legend indicates the role that
these elements take in the glass manufacturing process. These include elements
used as network formers, flux agents, optical modifiers, refining agents,
stabilisers, colourants and those found within refractory materials commonly
used in glass making.
