Glassmakers' Periodic Table of Elements
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the periodic table of elements Glass Technology Services have released a glass-specific periodic table of elements.

The unique periodic table highlights the elements commonly used in glass manufacturing, while a graphical legend indicates the role that these elements take in the glass manufacturing process. These include elements used as network formers, flux agents, optical modifiers, refining agents, stabilisers, colourants and those found within refractory materials commonly used in glass making.
