LUXAR
Anti-Reflective Glass

LUXAR is an anti-reflective coated glass that provides improved visual transmission, picture clarity and reduced glare with its very low residual reflection. Traditional glass reflects about 8% of the incident light. LUXAR, however, reflects only about 0.5% of the incident light, allowing 99.5% of light to pass through without unwanted reflections or mirror-like effects. It is thus used in structures where the crystal-clear quality of glass is key, such as retail displays, stadiums, and viewing galleries.

 

LUXAR provides a new dimension for glass as it is seemingly invisible with almost no reflectance or colour distortions in transmission. Produced with a durable multi-layered optical thin coating with Magnetron Sputtering Technology which performs like hard coating, it can be tempered, laminated, double-glazed or silkscreen printed. LUXAR is available on regular float, low iron and tinted green and grey float glass. For laminated glass application, single side coated LUXAR should be used with the uncoated side facing the interlayer.

Product Features

Durability

LUXAR is produced by Magnetron Sputtering Technology which creates a superior hard coating finish. The multi-layered coating of metal oxide does not corrode, but is hard wearing and durable. In terms of abrasion resistance, LUXAR is comparable to regular clear float glass.

High Visible Light Transmission

LUXAR improves transparency and increases light transmission with its high degree of clarity and non-reflective surface.

Optical Clarity

LUXAR reduces glare, mirror-like effects and reflections to a minimum. With a reflection of less than 0.5%, the non-reflective properties are optimised for direct viewing of the glass, making it almost invisible.
