Sunlight Ultraviolet & Infrared Heat Protection
An advanced, high performance coating for glass and composite surfaces. Blocks damaging Ultra Violet (99.9%) and infrared (90%), while reducing surface heat by up to 17oC*.
*Often heat can be reduced by 50%.
Infrared (IR) Blocking:
Stops infrared light, commonly known as (IR) heating buildings, vehicles and boats and making the environment uncomfortable. This also allows Air Conditioning systems to work more effectively which saves money.
KillGlass Clear coating is virtually invisible so keeps glass surfaces looking sharp.
Interior and Exterior:
KillGlass can be applied to either side of the glass surface, especially useful if access is limited.
KillGlass coatings have been tested in all weather conditions and function even in the most extreme locations.
Ultraviolet (UV) Blocking:
Essential to stop Ultraviolet, commonly know as UV damaging surfaces and causing fading in carpets, soft furnishing and plastics. In the winter UV levels are actually the same if not higher than in the summer months because the Infrared (IR) levels are reduced.
On hot days the temperature is reduced in rooms, vehicles and boats and in winter the coating stops heat escaping through the glass therefore reducing energy costs.
KillGlass Tint gives a light Bronzing/Iridium Blue to the glass surface while maintaining sharp focus and clarity.
KillGlass coatings are really tough and reduce abrasion and scratches, especially useful on polycarbonate and plastic panels. There’s no peeling, stickiness or distortion unlike “stick-on” window flms.
Solar Energy Explained – Reﬂected / Absorbed / Transmitted
When the sun’s radiation reaches the glass surface, part of this energy is reﬂected by the glass: This is the RE, or Reﬂected Energy. Another part of the sun’s radiation passes directly through the glass: This is the TE, or Transmitted Energy. The last sun energy component is absorbed by the glass. This is the AE, or absorbed energy.
It is important to note that this energy will also either reﬂected or transmitted through the glass.
TE and RE measurements are generally made using a method called Parry Moon/mass 2. This method covers the 300 to 2140 nm wavelength, ensuring the value represents the best average.
Why is Ultraviolet (UV) damaging
Ultraviolet (UV) light is largely responsible for the fading of colours and degeneration of many materials. KillGlass protective coating reduces the damaging rays by up to 99.9% and can therefore substantially slow down or eliminate the fading process. KillGlass protective coating can also be extremely useful in protecting displays in shop windows, galleries, and furniture, prolonging the life and maintaining their original colour.
