Transparent low-melting inorganic glass is an attractive industrial material based on its high thermal and light resistance compared with conventional engineering plastics. If the melting temperature of inorganic glass could be decreased, the doping of guest materials or compression moulding on the glass surface would be easier. Although phosphate glass is considered as a potential candidate because of its transparency in the visible region and low-melting behaviour, water durability often becomes a problem for implementation. Here, we prepared inorganic low-melting phosphate glass at a temperature of 500 °C via a melting and quenching methodology. It was found that tin-doped phosphate glasses exhibited higher thermal and light resistance properties than polycarbonates. Colourless transparent oxide glasses without organic components are capable of bringing about new possibilities for the application of inorganic glasses.
