Reflective Glass is made by using the coating process called “Sputtering Method”. In this process, high voltage is applied to a cathode in a vacuum chamber filled with gases like argon, etc. The electrical discharge causes the electrons and gas molecules to collide, thus releasing gas anions. These anions accelerate rapidly towards the cathode and strike a metal target. Metal atoms are released to form a thin uniform coating on the glass surface.
Design With Freedom
Reflective Glass comes in many in intriguing hues to complement the architect’s designs. It is suitable for glass curtain wall and blends well with metal, concrete, tiles, granite and other building material.
Reflective Glass has excellent solar heat controlling capability, and it can substantially reduce the interior are conditioning load. Various performance types of Reflective Glass are available to suit the architect’s or engineer’s specification. This enables the architect’s to design large openings for the buildings’ facade.
Reflective Glass has a reflective surface which allows occupants in the interior to see a clear exterior view throughout the daytime. Due to the reflective coating and light intensity during daytime which cause the interior to be dimmer than the exterior, people outside the building are unable to see the interior. Thus, privacy is ensured.
Maximising Interior Comfort
Reflective Glass adequately transmits and reflects visible light to create a comfortable interior environment. Its soft hues keep the interior atmosphere comfortable and filter direct sunlight to reduce glare.
The mirror effect of Reflective Glass merges well with the surroundings and provides variations in appearance at different time of the day.
