NeoCeram® can take the heat. Continuous temperatures up to 1292° F (700° C) and short term temperatures up to 1472° F (800° C) can be withstood because this ceramic has an extremely low thermal coefficient of expansion. It doesn't run or swell at high temperatures the way normal glass does.
NeoCeram® can handle change. You wouldn't dare put snow or water on hot glass for fear that it would shatter or crack. Unlike glass, NeoCeram® can handle it.
Available in 3/16 inch thickness (5 mm)
The Temperature Shock Resistance (TSR) of ceramic glass characterizes the ability of a panel to withstand the temperature shock in which cold water is poured onto a hot panel. As a result of the fact that the TSR of PyroCeram® is practically zero, the temperature shock caused by sudden cooling with cold water leads to only minor stresses. The shock resistance of PyroCeram® is therefore normally limited only by the maximum operation temperature: Short Term Usage: 760° C / 1,400° F. Long Term Usage: 680° C / 1, 256° F.

I'm looking for a glass that remains clear the longest with the greatest durability.

Matthaus wrote:Neither of the mentioned products are traditional glass, as stated they are ceramic with some slightly different properties depending on the trade name. The etching that occurs from Anthracite fly ash eventually claims both products and causes crazing and eventual cracking. Always allow the glass to cool before applying any type of cleaning agent, always use a product meant for the ceramic such as ceramic stove top cleaner and steer clear of any common house hold glass cleaners that contain ammonia.
We do offer a piece of laser cut steel that perfectly replaces the glass for those that want to never have to replace it again, but alas that warming glow that reflects on the walls is missing when the glass is replaced with steel.
As Dave stated we are trying out the other product just to see if the buzz is correct, we will keep you posted as we get feedback.

On the glass difference by brand name, we have feedback from customers saying the Pyroceramic is holding up better, not sure how wide spread that is but have not had anyone say it is worse.
