​​​​​​​The new product is made from opal glass and can be polished to any thickness and/or bonded to any glass substrate. They are fully customizable to any size from 0.059 inches up to approximately 12 inches. Custom opal diffusers are useful in applications in which a very uniform white light is needed and when  the customer needs to control the amount of diffusion for a specific task. This can be done by changing the overall thickness of the opal; the size and the shape of the part can also be customized.

According to PG&O President Dan Bukaty, Jr., “We are delighted to offer this new capability and product to current and new customers who may need a customized diffusion. The opal diffusers work better than ground glass diffusers because they are white and very uniform. We can shape the opal glass, or we can glue it to any of our other glass substrates to achieve the exact amount of diffusion without serious loss of lighting efficiency.”
