GENERAL INFORMATION
  • Wissmach 96 uses a double rolled technique to give a smooth bottom surface and a polished top surface. The smooth and soft top surface makes scoring easy.
  • This glass is made by "casting" the glass directly on the rollers, minimizing air bubbles and maximizing uniformity and smooth surface.
  • Wissmach 96 glass is sold as 8x10, 10x16 and 16x21". Stock sheets are 21x32 and larger sheets may be available. At present, only 8x10 sheets are available on line.
SOLID OPALS - 3mm Standard Thickness
These are dense solid opals that fuse up bright and shiny. Outstanding choice for pieces that will be viewed in reflected light, such as picture frames.

 LUMINESCENT COLORS on 3mm BASE COLORS

Wissmach's Luminescent coating is similar to regular iridized coatings -
but not exactly.

  • When fired Luminescent side down on a fiber board kiln shelf that has a dry powder kiln wash dusting (ie. the dry powder right from the kiln wash container), the luminescent effect is intensified
  • When fired on a regular kiln shelf or on Papyros shelf paper, the coating will look intense - but not quite the same as fired above
  • Fire with the coated side up and the coating will stay on deeper, darker colors if fired no higher than 1410F. On lighter colors, the bulk of the effect will disappear, leaving a lovely sheen
  • Fire with a cap of clear and you will loose the effect.
