Is Bullseye glass COE 90?

Glass fusers who ask this question usually want to know if Bullseye glass is compatible with glass from another manufacturer. Unfortunately, the answer to this question is not simple. Our short response is this:

  • Matching COEs does not ensure compatibility between glasses, in spite of what you've read or heard from other practitioners or glass manufacturers.

  • Our fusible glasses are factory tested for compatibility with each other. We do not test for compatibility with other manufacturers' glasses. We do not test for COE or rate our glasses with COE numbers. We do not claim to produce glasses that are rated "COE 90."

  • The ONLY way you can insure that a Bullseye glass will be compatible with another manufacturer's glass is to conduct your own tests.

We strongly recommend that you read Technote 3: Compatibility of Glasses, which explains this complex and important matter in greater depth.
