The Clear Benefits of Glass

The glass industry requires lithium carbonate or spodumene to improve the properties of glass.

  • Lithium carbonate in glass-ceramic cooktops reduces thermal expansion. 
  • Lithium oxide, or lithia, is used in glass products including electronic devices providing corrosion and thermal shock resistance.
