According to the different characteristics, coated glass can be divided into the following categories: heat reflecting glass, low-e glass, conductive film glass.
Heat reflective glass is generally coated one layer or multiple layers of thin film such as chromium, titanium or stainless steel and other metals or their chemical compounds on the surface of glass, make the product rich color, have appropriate for visible light transmittance, high reflectivity to the infrared, higher absorption for ultraviolet rays. Therefore, also known as solar control coated glass, mainly used for building and glass curtain wall.
Low emissivity glass is coated multiple layers of thin films such as silver, copper or tin, or their chemical compounds on the surface of glass, products have high transmittance of visible light, high reflectivity of infrared ray and good heat insulation performance, mainly used in buildings and vehicles such as cars, ships. Due to poor strength of film layers, usually made in hollow glass to use.
Conductive film glass is coated conductive thin film with indium tin oxide on the glass surface, can be used to heating, defrost, demist for the glass and used in LED screen.
