Guardian Glass has introduced Clarity Neutral anti-reflective glass with a reflectivity of 0.6% a successor to its existing Clarity glass at 0.7%.
Clarity Neutral provides even higher transparency by reducing the bluish reflections that remain in the glass, resulting in a more neutral remaining reflected colour, says the company. Even in low or diffused background light conditions, Clarity Neutral reduces undesirable light reflection and refraction across more angles and light frequencies. The new glass also benefits from lower haze and colour shift after being heat treated.
European product commercialization manager Liam Williamson, said: “Clarity Neutral provides the very highest transparency of any of our products. In architectural monolithic applications such as facades, curtain walls and viewing areas, architects will have more freedom to create visually stunning, crystal clear, transparent glazing that blends the building in with its surroundings.
“In special purpose applications such as retail storefronts, museum showcases, picture frames and commercial refrigeration doors, Clarity Neutral reduces reflections and glare to such an extent that the glass appears almost invisible, providing clearer, uninterrupted, more natural views through the glass.”
Clarity Neutral is designed to be optimally applied on either Guardian ExtraClear float glass as standard or Guardian UltraClear low-iron float glass. The product is available in glass thicknesses from 3mm to 15mm, and sizes up to jumbo (6,000mm x 3210mm). The glass is available annealed or in a heat treatable version for safety, security, or acoustic applications. The double-sided glass is supplied with one temporary protective film for easier processing and fabrication.
