Technical information

High insulating glass is an insulated glass (2 or more layers) assembled around a spacer. The sheets of glass can be given specific coatings that enhance the insulation and solar control properties. Unbeatable thermal insulation (U-value) and greenhouse effect (solar control) performance.

Thermal insulation, keeps the warmth inside during the winter, without compromising on natural light.

Solar control, prevents overheating and maintains excellent thermal insulation.

High Insulating Glass for specialist automotive applications arealways tailored to the specific requirements discussed between the customer and AGC :
Safety
Comfort
Standards
Use and speed of the vehicle
Engraving requirements
Opto-energetic requirements
Geographical situation
Target weight
aesthetic factors (ie. color and reflection level)
noise reduction target
Projected lifespan
environmental requests
Life cycle cost.

High insulating glass is dramatically improving passenger comfort : Keeping vehicles and their occupants cool in summer, staying warm in winter with no glare.

This type of glass is available in a wide range of colors. It can be adapted to maximize or minimize light transmission entering the vehicle.

High insulating glass is totally compatible with safety requirements : use of safety tempered and/or laminated glass.

Environmentally friendly: high insulating glass decreases the operating costs of the vehicle, by reducing the use of climate control systems, reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
