XIR® Encapsulated Glass
The boundary of architect's creativities has ultimately extended. The barriers of use large expanses of glass windows, skylights, structural or non-structural facades, point fixed applications as well as bent and curved glass with compromising cooling loads and visual clarity has no more existed.
XIR® high performance "Heat Rejecting" Film encapsulated in a laminated glass creating a color neutral, energy efficient product with exceptional solar control properties. XIR® rates in the top end for solar control glass products and has the key benefits of an exceptionally high light-transmission of 72% while offering greater reduction in solar heat gain (0.47 Shading Coefficient) and isolation of infrared and Ultraviolet (IR transmission 6%, UV transmission 0.03%). This is comparable and in many cases superior, to the higher end heavily tinted or reflective solar control products.
XIR®PET film can be laminated with annealed, heat strengthened, or tempered clear glass, Low-E coated glass or combined with tinted PVB and tinted glass
Visually Clear and colorless
Improved daylight and transparency with 72% light transmission on both interior and exterior surfaces. This is not possible when using a coated glass product.
Super Solar Control
World’s Lowest Solar heat transmission Monolithic Glass (with clear glass) increased indoor comfort by 0.47 Shading Coefficient and 6% IR transmission.
High Ultraviolet Protection
Blocks 99.97% UV rays; reduces interior fading, lives in health environments.
Higher Sound Control
Reduces outdoor noise—up to 2 dB increased in comparison of regular laminated glass.
Lower heating cost without sacrificing natural daylight.
Extra Safety. Encapsulating laminated provides better protection than regular laminated glass.
Uniform appearance over both flat and curved surfaces – not possible with coated glass.
Use of Glass
Structural or non-structural facades / Point fixed applications / Bent and curved glass / Showrooms / Commercial applications / Skylights / Residential or Home.
