Solar control performance boost

AGC has launched two new solar control coatings: Stopray Ultra-70 on Clearvision and Stopray Titanium 34T.

AGC solar control glazing products are high-tech glass products capable of meeting today’s growing energy and aesthetic requirements, the company said.

Stopray products feature a coating that ensures optimal solar control in the summer while their exceptionally low Ug value prevents heat loss in the winter.

Stopray Ultra-70 on Clearvision is a new, high-performance soft-coated glass product, which features a triple silver coating that maximises light transmission while significantly reducing solar heat gain. Sought after by architects for its low interior and exterior light reflection, this new coating is also a natural choice for glass processors because of its flexible processing options.

Stopray Ultra-70 on Clearvision delivers a light transmission rating of 70%, a solar factor of 33, and a selectivity of 2.10, with low internal and external light reflection. It is mainly used in office building facades.

Stopray Titanium 34T is a heat-treatable magnetron-coated glass product. Its high solar protection rating and superb light and energy performance make it perfect for hot climates. “Featuring body-tinted grey glass, this product is highly prized for its low interior and exterior light reflection and delightful aesthetics, giving processors and architects plenty of leeway to play with the look of a building,” the company said.
