sunglass industry is a pioneer in the bending of coated glass. Panes of glass with low-e, solar-control or other ‒ selective or high-performant ‒ coatings to improve performance have been bent in Villafranca Padovana for more than 25 years.
Effective solar-control coatings are possible for almost all formats. By either allowing a certain amount of solar radiation to reach the interior or screening off the sunlight, the façade is given a “sun protection factor” ‒ visible or invisible depending on the design.
A neutral coating on surface 3 ensures effective thermal insulation for bent panes. The coating is adapted to suit the Ug value required. Good colour rendering, high light transmittance and optimum thermal insulation are the results.
