What is Solar-X?

Solar-X heat-reflective automobile glass is infrared reflecting-coating laminated glass (patent No. 2006 2 0059916.5) manufactured relying on the most advanced equipment and technology at present. This product is formed when the surface of high-quality semi-finished clear float glass is plated with many layers of metallic oxides through vacuum magnetron and cathode sputtering method before it is subject to hot bending and lamination.

The appearance of solar-X automobile glass taken on the color of light (Noble Blue) which appears more luxurious than that of traditional automobile glass.

Advantage of Solar-X Heat-Reflective Automobile Glass

- Compared with traditional automobile glass, Solar-X heat-reflective automobile glass enjoys a number of excellent properties.

◆ Outstanding heat resistance

The unique LOW-E coated layer of Solar-X can effectively prevent solar radiant heat from reaching the insides of automobiles, so as to reduce the load on automobile air-conditioners and reduce energy consumption. The superexcellent shading coefficient of Solar-X enables it to be 38% more heat resistant than common automobile glass.

◆ Excellent transmittance

Solar-X automobile glass not only has good heat insulation function, but also guarantees excellent visible light transmittance. Its most appropriate natural light transmittance ensures there is a clear view in the driving cab to look at the outside.

The visible light transmittance is kept within the standard range of 70%~75%,
which improves the visual comfort so that the sun becomes no longer glaring.

Compliance with standards on spectrally selective glass

Glass whose light to solar gain (LSG) is larger than 1.25IS is defined by the standards set by Department of Energy as spectrally selective glass. The LSG of Solar-X automobile glass is 1.73 while the LSG of common front automobile glass is 1.13.
