The base material is an extra clear low iron glass. Through a vacuum magnetron sputtering process, multiple nanometre thin layers of carefully selected metal and mineral oxides are applied onto the surface. The different refractive indices of these layers eliminates surface reflections. The result is residual surface reflections of less than 1% making the glass virtually invisible and providing a clear, unobstructed view.
State-of-the-art coating technology enables us to reduce the residual reflections to an absolute minimum thus eliminating undesired "greenish" or purple "look" of traditional AR coated glass. The top coating layer is index matched to body fat and moisture which significantly reduces the visibility of fingerprints and light contaminations. Furthermore, the anti reflective coating is very easy to clean.
In addition, an extra smooth and hard top coating layer makes Glacier™ AR very scratch resistant and durable. For greater safety Glacier™ AR can be thermally tempered (from 4 mm thickness) or laminated (Glacier™ SAFE).
Typically, applied sizes are from 32" and up to more than 100", making Glacier™ AR perfect for large format usage.
PSC has a long range of in-house glass processing capabilities such as cutting, edge finish, thermal tempering, printing & lamination.
Residual reflections are reduced to a minimum with GlacierTM AR.
For applications needing a clear and unobstructed view, PSC supply the GlacierTM AR solution.
