SPECIFIC GLAZING COMPOSITION
SHENBO (SBG) studied the requirements of energy saving factors, visual appearance and light transmittance, designed to provide double coated IGUs for this high energy saving required building. A new combination of IGU by combining the uses of Low-E coating and solar control coating in #2 and #3 respectively. This glazing unlikely to rely on the use of tinted glass to reduce the physical properties of visible light transmittance, while directly strengthening the control of reflection infrared and invisible light, enhance its shading performance.
