Coatings are the thin layers of metal that are applied to glass in order to improve solar performance. Low-E (Low-Emissivity) coatings are among the most popular coatings applied to glass because of their low heat transfer properties. They also oﬀer more light transmission than traditional reflective coatings.
Tecnoglass offers a wide variety of Low-E and reflective coatings. We can also add silk-screen patterns for a superior blend of solar performance and appearance.
The R-Series is a full range of high-performance “cool crisp" aesthetic insulating Low-E glass that offers low to high reflectivity and visibility, and a low solar heat gain coefficient. These coatings have a neutral brightness that enhances the appearance of low-iron glass as well as various tinted glass.
Tecnoglass N70/38 was developed to enhance Solar Control Low-E giving new architectural projects the energy saving benefits of Low-E glass anytime of the year. Now you can have the perfect balance for controlling heat transfer during the summer, but also preserving inside a portion of heat during the winter, thus controlling the overall energy costs of temperature conditioning and lighting. A winter U Value of .29 and a summer U-Value of .27 are the perfect combination for controlling heat loss in the winter and heat transfer in the summer.
With its transparent, color-neutral aesthetic and unprecedented solar control and visible light transmittance characteristics, Solarban 70XL glass can help you strike the right balance between form and function. When coupled with conventional clear glass in a 1-inch insulating glass unit, Solarban 70XL glass outshines the performance of any other solar control Low-E glass on the market today. Additionally, Solarban 70XL glass can be combined in an insulating glass unit with any tinted glass from Vitro, including the ﬁve tints from the Blues & Greens collection, as well as any Vitro performance or high-performance bronze or gray tint.
