Spectrum 96 Colors

I am a huge fan of the Spectrum 96 products, which allow the "hot glass" artist to achieve "stained glass" effects in their pieces. "Spectrum offers a broad line of specially formulated "Tested Compatible" glass for the Hot-Glass arts. These products have been Expansion-Matched to a nominal C.O.E. of 96, then factory-tested for fusing compatibility. Each glass has been carefully formulated for Multi-Fire devit resistance, and every sheet is clearly marked with a Spectrum "Tested Compatible" label. Though they may look the same as our stained glass products, Spectrum "Tested Compatible" glasses are fundamentally different in their basic chemistries, designed to deliver an excellent working range and superior stability for glass fusing, slumping and other Hot-Glass pursuits."

C&R Loo sells the Spectrum 96 sheets by the square foot for between US$4.50 and US$7.70 per square foot. The following section is from Spectrum Glass's "Basics" page

Spectrum is a manufacturer of specialty sheet glass for use in architecture, fine arts, hobby-craft, lighting and other applications. We produce nearly 250 glass products including Waterglass®, Baroque™, Artíque®, Iridescent Glass, multi-color mixes and textured colors.

Spectrum Product Groups

Cathedral Glass Transparent, single color sheet glass, available with either smooth or textured surfaces.
Mixed Opalescent Glass One or more cathedral glasses combined with white opalescent glass to create a variegated, multi-colored sheet. Available with varying degrees of light transmission.
Opalized Glass Solid color, opaque glasses. These non-variegated products are highly reflective in nature and thus especially popular for mosaic and mural application. With backlighting, natural or artificial, they reveal a captivating, luminescent glow.
Waterglass® A natural surface texture created by stretching the hot glass sheet while it is still in a pliable state. The result is gentle, rolling waves that resemble the surface of a lake or stream. A Spectrum exclusive.
Baroque™ A "reamy" glass, produced by combining glasses of mis-matched compositions. The different glasses "oppose" each other when they are stirred together, creating artistic 3-D swirls. A Spectrum exclusive.
Artíque® A scribed "antique" glass, alive with the surface striations characteristic of mouthblown sheet glass. Artíque unites brilliant surface characteristics, delicate light refraction and subtle but definite background distortion. A Spectrum exclusive.
Iridescent Glass A thin layer of metallic crystal has been bonded to these glasses during sheet forming, creating a colorful, shimmering surface effect.
SilverCoats™ We’ve taken our unique art glass products and added a bright, reflective silver-coat to one side, turning specialty glasses into shimmering super-specialties perfect for projects that demand brilliance. SilverCoats reflect a rainbow of color and texture any time it’s called for. A Spectrum exclusive.
System 96® Products formulated and "Tested Compatible" especially for fusing, slumping and other hot glass work. This Spectrum line of sheet glass is complemented by many specialty glass products, including glass frits, noodle, stringer, dichroic glass, and casting billets, made and supplied by System 96 partner companies. All System 96 products are tested against an identical standard to insure compatibility of viscosity and expansion coefficient. (See Fusing & Slumping)
