Infrared Coated Windshield and Auto Glass
Solar Glass Blocks Harmful UV Rays and Keeps Car Cool During Summer Months
Auto glass technology has gone through many changes though the years. Now, think about sunscreen for your vehicle. By harnessing the power of UV rays (solar energy) your vehicle can block out radiant heat. The advanced infrared technology we are talking about is IR coating. This windshield technology is powerful that it captures the sun’s heat to help melt away ice and snow with you start up your car.
What is Infrared Coating (IR Coating)?
Infrared (IR) coating is a technology that has been around for some time. It is used for various glass’ in electronics, including lens’ for DSLR/Mirrorless camera’s. It is a thin layer that is coated, or lathered, on the top layer of laminated auto glass. This chemical coat is composed of metal oxides.
By reducing the need for excessive air conditioning, Metal Oxide helps lower your engine wear and tear, reduces your carbon footprint (if that is what you are into) making it a sustainable choice for the eco-conscious automotive industry. Whether you’re driving a sleek sports car or a rugged SUV, Metal Oxide’s solar glass technology enhances the overall aesthetic, making heads turn wherever you go.
What is IR Coating’s Metal Oxide Combination?
Tin (IV) Oxide
Provides electrical conductivity acting as a defensive barrier against harmful UV rays (infrared radiation). Tin oxide stops radiant heat from passing through the auto glass.
Indium Tin Oxide (ITO)
This super boosts the properties of Tin (IV) Oxide. This allows more electrical conductivity as well as transparency in the IR coating. ITO is widely used in different applications.
Benefits of IR Coated Auto Glass Technology?
Superior Heat Rejection
With the ability to block a significant amount of infrared (IR) radiation, these windshields keep the interior of your vehicle cooler, even on scorching hot days. By reducing the heat buildup inside the vehicle, the IR coating also helps to alleviate the strain on your air conditioning system, resulting in improved fuel efficiency.
Health Skin & Longer Lasting Interior
These windshields are designed to filter out a substantial portion of ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is known to cause skin damage and contribute to the fading of upholstery and dashboard materials. By using this advanced technology, you can protect yourself and your vehicle’s interior from the harmful effects of UV rays, ensuring a safer and longer-lasting driving experience.
The special coating applied to these windshields reduces glare caused by sunlight, headlights, and other sources of bright light. This means you can enjoy a clearer view of the road ahead, reducing the risk of accidents and improving overall driving safety. Whether you’re driving during the day or at night, the improved visibility provided by these windshields can make a significant difference in your driving experience.
Better Fuel Efficiency
By reducing the heat buildup inside your vehicle, these windshields help to lower the load on your air conditioning system, resulting in improved fuel efficiency. This means you can save money on fuel costs in the long run. Additionally, the UV-blocking properties of these windshields can help preserve the interior of your vehicle, preventing the need for costly repairs or replacements due to sun damage.
