Glass is widely used in our daily life, as large as the building glass curtain wall, small as the LCD screen can be used. With the continuous improvement of the production technology level, in recent years, a variety of sunscreen glass, self-cleaning glass, thermal insulation glass, anti-radiation glass, coated glass and so on gradually into the eyes of consumers.
Coated glass, also known as reflective glass, is a kind of glass coated with thin film on the surface, can be coated with a layer or multilayer film, the coating can be metal, alloy or metal compounds. Coating can change the optical properties of glass to meet certain requirements.
Coated glass according to the different characteristics of the product, generally can be divided into conductive film glass, low radiation glass, heat reflection glass and so on.
Conductive film glass is a kind of conductive film coated with indium tin oxide on the surface of glass. It is widely used in modern life in liquid crystal display (LCD), solar cells, microelectronics ITO conductive film glass, photoelectronics and various optical fields, and has a very significant effect.
Low radiation glass is a thin film system plated on the surface of glass, consisting of multiple layers of metal or their compounds. It can reduce energy absorption or control energy exchange between indoor and outdoor. In architectural applications, low radiation glass can achieve the effect of warm in winter and cool in summer, can guarantee the comfort of life and work, and thus achieve the purpose of environmental protection and energy saving.
Heat-reflecting glass is a thin film composed of one or more layers of metal or its compounds on the surface of glass by physical or chemical methods. Different coating materials can present rich colors. Heat-reflecting glass has a high reflection ability to sunlight, but still has good light transmittance, can effectively reflect the sun light, including a lot of infrared ray, it can make indoor people feel cool and comfortable in sunshine.
The above is about the type of coated glass, function and use of the introduction. Nowadays, coated glass is more popular, mainly because of its own unique advantages, such as heat insulation, UV protection, explosion prevention and so on.
