The benefits and uses of low reflective glass

Imagine staring out of a window, not at your own distorted reflection, but at the vibrant, uninterrupted view of the world beyond. Low reflective glass, with its magical ability to minimise reflections, opens a door to a clearer, more connected experience.

At Diamond Coatings, we are pioneers in this transformative technology, crafting anti-reflective (AR) coatings that revolutionise how we see and interact with glass.

How Low Reflective Glass Works

Traditional glass reflects a significant portion of light, creating unwanted glare and obscuring the view. Low reflective glass, however, utilises advanced coatings, like those offered by Diamond Coatings, to minimise this reflection. These coatings are microscopically thin layers deposited onto the glass surface, manipulating light waves to reduce reflection and enhance transmission.

Diamond Coatings offers a range of AR coating solutions, including:

  • Single-sided AR: Perfect for situations where only one side needs reduced reflection, like display cases or architectural exteriors. Our single-sided AR boasts an impressive 94% light transmission, ensuring both visual clarity and minimised reflection.
  • Double-sided AR: For ultimate clarity and minimal reflection, our double-sided AR shines with a remarkable 96% light transmission. Ideal for high-end electronics, optical instruments, and museum showcases.

Why Choose Low Reflective Glass?

The advantages of low reflective glass extend far beyond aesthetics, impacting functionality, energy efficiency, and even safety:

  • Enhanced Clarity: See true colours and details with minimised reflections, ideal for museums, art galleries, and retail displays.
  • Reduced Glare: Enjoy unhindered views and improved comfort, especially in bright environments like offices and retail environments.
  • Improved Safety: Clearer vision through windshields and aircraft windows enhances driving and flying safety.
  • Energy Efficiency: Lower heat absorption due to reduced reflection helps buildings stay cooler, minimising reliance on air conditioning.
  • Sustainability: Lower energy consumption translates to a reduced environmental footprint.
  • Increased Touchscreen Responsiveness: AR-coated touchscreens offer enhanced sensitivity and reduced fingerprint smudging.

 Where Does Low Reflective Glass Shine? (Literally!)

The applications of low reflective glass are as diverse as its benefits. Here are just a few examples:

  • Architecture: Buildings with low reflective glass facades offer stunning views while reducing heat gain and energy consumption.
  • Museums and Art Galleries: AR-coated display cases showcase priceless artifacts with exceptional clarity and minimal glare.
  • Electronics: Smartphones, tablets, and TVs with AR coatings deliver brighter, sharper visuals with reduced reflections.
  • Automobiles and Aviation: Windshields and aircraft windows coated with AR improve visibility and enhance safety.
  • Scientific and Medical Instruments: Microscopes, telescopes, and other instruments benefit from reduced internal reflections for precise measurements.
  • Touchscreens: Mobile devices and interactive displays gain improved responsiveness and reduced fingerprint smudging with AR coatings.
