Bullseye Clear Transparent glass, what is its chemical composition? And how good is its mechanical property, in comparison with common commercial glasses?

Not sure I understand your question. If you mean Bullseye Glass in Portland Oregon then why not ask them? Use their email form below if thats what you are asking about.

Not at all certain anyone but the company would know its actual chemical composition.

Depending on your use of Bullseye, it is probably much better for lots of applications than normal commercial clear glass which I presume you are referring to float glass. Bullseye is the premier glass that is used throughout the world for glass fusing. It has a COE of 90 and is compatible with their colored glasses as well as those made by Uroboros Glass. Their glasses are resistant in most instances to devitrification. Try to consult with Lannie McGregor there as she is one of the owners and can answer any questions you may have.
