PF Product FormList of Glass Types

•the hot process PF "MP-" •the cold process PF "MC-"

Since the melting process between the hot process PF and the cold process PF are different, the glass properties are different. The transmittance property slightly differs between them.
The hot process PF is available up to the volume of 2300mm3, and less than 6500mg by weight.
This catalog lists both types of hot process PF.
One type is called GOB PF for larger sizes the hot process PF. The other type is called ball PF for small sizes.
We will supply the cold process PF for volumes and weights the exceed limits described above for the hot process PF.
