Float Fire 82 glass is a float compatible fusing glass that is designed for fusing to float glass. The glass has an approximate COE of 82 +/-3 and can be fused with inexpensive clear window glass, also known as float glass. Because the COE of float glass among manufactures varies within a range between 79 and 85, there is no guessing as to whether Float Fire 82 is float compatible. It is float glass so it is float compatible. The only question is the appropriate firing temperature. We provide firing guidelines but we still recommend that you test because of differences in kilns and studio conditions. You must have a UV light, also known as a tin scope, in order to determine the proper side of the float glass that you wish to fuse on. Float Fire 82 is a very versatile product that can also be used in many applications other than glass fusing. It is similar to flashed glass because the color is on one side of the glass. This makes Float Fire 82 a wonderful glass for glass sandblasting and glass etching. It is easier to work with than flashed glass and it is less expensive. Try glass slumping, draping and glass bending with Float Fire 82. Many architectural glass projects use float glass for slumping and bending because it is so easy to work with and produces dramatic results. Imagine the addition of color that is possible with the use of Float Fire 82 glass or our float compatible frits, powders, confetti, and float compatible stringers or rods. Whether you are making glass tiles, glass table tops, bowls, glass panels, jewelry or large architectural glass projects, Float Fire 82 float compatible products are perfect for the project.
