Introduction: Eco friendly crystal glass is a type of crystal glass which is produced without using lead and barium. Both chemicals are important to increase the sparkling effects of the glass properties. However, the use of these materials will affect to human health. As a substitution, potassium and titanium have been added to the glass mixture. The replacement make the crystal glass quality is comparable to crystal glass containing lead and barium. Currently, the crystal glass mix is produced in the form of pellet which ease the handling and melting process.
Advantages: Environmental friendly, good refractive index
Commercial application: Crystal glass is desirable owing to its decorative properties and commonly used as tableware and decorative glassware.
Novelty: The crystal glass formulation without lead and barium but give higher refractive index.
Invention: Filing the Utility Innovation with IP number UI 2012004620.
Commercialisation: Ready to be commercialised.
