    Mate can't think of the thread either but I think he might have given some misinformation. A friend investigated the low iron glass in Melbourne and couldn't get close to $120, $280+ was the go and not the correct thickness either.

    Hi Guys,

    FYI, Low Iron Glass main characteristic is that the glass does not have that green look when you looking at it (particularly when looking at it from an angle, on the “EDGES”) commonly used for frameless shower screens or frameless balustrades, as it looks nicer without that green showing on edges.

    Don’t waste your money on this type of glass, as it does cost more than your standard “clear” glass, but unfortunately makes ZERO difference for us, in a pinball machine. It actually has a higher reflectivity than clear, so we end up worst off.

    Trust me, as I sell glass for a living, first pinball I ever bought, I got a low iron sheet, just to try it out, but definitely pointless.

    Hope this helps!

    I tried the non ion glass some time ago and it didnt look any different to normal glass other than no green tinge on the edges.

    I have seen most versions and for me pdi wins out but the previous supply issue, cost and prepaying was average.

    So as I mentioned I airfreighted in 40 sheets and it worked out about $342 a sheet. Sea freight would have been about 250-260 a sheet at the time. Would be a good option for a group to get together and coordinate for a bulk buy. I didn't want to wait the 2-3 months for sea option.

    Or for $325 you can order single sheets of PDI from Sydney whenever you want, no hassle, no risk and costed at the current shit AUD/EUR exchange rate.

    Discounts for 3 and more sheets ordered at one time.
