The Gillinder team can also meet the challenges associated with the adoption of light emitting diode (LED) technology and customization for unique aerospace applications. Gillinder can modify or develop NVIS glass colors to accommodate various lamp sources and/or optimize specific factors of particular importance to our customers. We offer comprehensive glass solutions — from design and glass formulation through manufacture.


Our technical team, consisting of glass scientists and optical engineers, is available and prepared to meet the most difficult challenges:

  • Standard blank forms are 6.5” square with a 6.0” square of guaranteed usable area. Thicknesses start at .275” (7mm).

  • Finished parts can be provided as flat filters, polished and/or diffused and cut to size for a particular application.

  • Our NVIS compatible glass is easier and faster to machine work, which reduces customer finishing times and promotes generally higher yields.
