Sheet Glass Densities

At KOG the term “density” refers to the amount of light that any given sheet of glass will transmit.  All standard opalescent color combinations are available in a variety of densities to suit virtually any application. The codes listed below may be combined with most color numbers as shown in the following example using KOG’s popular number 18:

18D — very dense, diffuses light
18MD — medium density, limited light transmission
18 — KOG’s most common density
18ML — medium light density, considerable light transmission
18L — light, near translucent opal
18LL — streaky, the glass is a combination of two or more cathedral colors with no opal content
