The base material of Glacier™ 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 eliminate 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 the undesired green or purple tint of traditional AR-coated glass. The top coating layer is index-matched to skin and moisture, which significantly reduces the visibility of fingerprints and light contaminations.
In addition, an extra smooth and hard top coating layer makes Glacier™ AR very scratch-resistant and durable. For more safety, Glacier™ AR can be thermally tempered (if the chosen solution is more than 4 mm thick) or laminated. We call our laminated solution Glacier™ SAFE.
Glacier™ AR is usually used in sizes from 32″ and up to more than 100″ since it is a great solution for large format usage in some digital signage applications.
We can supply this solution in dimensions as large as 3210 x 2250mm.
We try to provide you as much information as possible, but it’s hard to provide all information in just one page.
There are a lot of exceptions depending on what features you need for your application. Because of these exceptions, we are more than happy to talk with you about our options.
We are – after all – experts when it comes to optical filter and cover glass solutions.
