This paper covers the development of a new type of glass containing iron. The statistical evaluation indicates that there is a significant difference between the sealing times of the lead-alkali glass and the iron doped glass. It shows the effects of varying percentages of iron on seal parameters. It shows that the ratio of iron oxides determinesthe transmittance of the glass more effectively than the percentage of total iron. The paper includes an evaluation of the effects of this glass on seal strength.
