Precision Glass Services Inc., is your one stop source for Neoceram™, (Fireplace Glass) custom-cut
ceramic glass at wholesale prices. Neoceram™ is a transparent low expansion glass-ceramic with a number of outstanding features that include high resistance to thermal shock, high mechanical strength, and excellent electrical characteristics. With an almost zero thermal expansion coefficient, the applications for Neoceram™ continue to grow from Wood Stoves, Gas Fireplaces, Electric Heaters to High Tech Applications.
Neoceram™ is commonly referred to as glass but it is actually a transparent ceramic. Neoceram™ is 3/16"
or 5mm thick. Ideal Solution for Woodstoves. Unlike annealed glass (Regular Float), Neoceram™ withstands continuous exposure to high temperatures without the fear of destruction. It is also resistant to failure due to temperature variation. It is the ideal solution for many wood stoves and fireplaces where glass panels are less than 6 inches from the flames.
Strength and Durability
Neoceram™ can take the heat! Continuous temperatures up to 1470°F (700°C) can be withstood because this ceramic has an extremely low thermal coefficient of expansion. It doesn't run or swell at high temperatures the way normal glass does.
Field Tested against Underwriters Laboratories (UL-1482) impact test Neoceram™ is a glass product that offers continuous, high temperature use (700°C / 1470° F) with no fear of destruction from high heat or temperature variation (water or snow on hot glass). Whether burning gas or wood, today’s high efficiency stoves and fireplaces can produce intense heat. While ordinary tempered glass withstands temperatures up to approximately 250° C (500°F), higher levels of heat may cause it to crack and shatter or worse explode out of your fireplace. For builders and home owners, that can mean costly replacements - or worse!
Thanks to modern technology, there is now an alternative! With the transparency of glass and the heat-resistant characteristics of ceramic. Neoceram™ can tolerate continuous temperatures up to 1470° F - nearly three times the heat resistance of tempered glass. Neoceram™ cannot be broken by heat during typical usage in a wood stove or gas fireplace.
