A Question of Coating
8/30/2010

In the form of the different types of glass coatings available in the "Stopsol" range, AGC offers architects, façade makers and metal profile makers a spectrum of highly specialized solar protection types. The coating stands out for its durable reflective properties, its perfect evenness, and in particular for its tough, scratchproof and robust surface. The preferred coating is a layer of metal oxide applied by a pyrolitic process, as it is easy to harden or bend and can be used for single-glass or double-glazed applications. Panes treated in this way allow short-wave rays to pass through them but reflect the long-wave infrared radiation. In this way, the U-value of a single pane of glass can be halved.

Stopsol is available on different basic glass types and in three different coatings: Classic, Supersilver and Silverlight.
