Soda Lime Glass is the most common substrate used for masks, due to its good quality/price ratio. The glass is optically good, very flat and has no imperfections. If used in a photo-lithographic process, glass can be used with a very wide variety of light sources from 350nm upwards, with an excellent UV transparency. Soda Lime glass has a thermal co-efficient expansion of 93 (10-7) which is approxomately 10 ppm (parts per million) , and a transmittance value of 88% at 375-450nm, with a glass flatness class of 5um for the smaller plates and 10um for the larger plates. Some of the very big plates of 14" and above, may have a bigger flatness tolerance. We would recomend always using Soda Lime glass where it is suitable.


  • Soda Lime Optical transmission of visible light = 88%

  • Soda Lime Optical transmission of visible light = 250nm

  • Soda Lime thermal expansion co-efficient =  95 ppm (parts per million)






Q: Can i buy just one ? 

A: Sorry, packaging requirements means that we can only sell the plates in larger quantities of either a full, or half , box.

Q: Can i order anytime from stock ?
A: Because these are low volume products from our production process, they may not always be available. Please enquire first if your need is urgent.
