Starfire Glass (low lead, low iron glass) is a special formula that creates a clearer image. Starfire glass is easily recognizable at the edge. Instead of the traditional green shade it has a clearer light blue shade.
It is premium glass and is often found in Frameless Shower Enclosures, Tabletops and Shelves. Its applications are limitless.
It can be beveled, polished and tempered.
A “seamed” edge is one that has been lightly sanded to remove any sharp burrs. Glass with a seamed edge is safe to handle but is not decorative. It is our standard finish and is available at no extra charge.
Pencil Polish: A pencil polish is a rounded edge. It is the perfect edge for Glass Protector Tops because it blends into the edges of furniture.
Flat Polish: a flat polish is a flat edge with a small 45 degree chamfer on the very top and bottom. For custom made 1/2" and thicker Glass Table Tops, a flat polish is recommended. It is economical and is the best way to show the thickness of the glass.
Beveling creates a decorative angle starting near the edge of the glass. For example, a 1" bevel will start 1" from the edge of the glass.
