Pilkington Solar-E™

Pilkington Solar-E™ Plus

Overview

Pilkington Solar-E™ is the latest evolution to the Pilkington Solar-E™ family of pyrolytic coated low-reflective solar control glasses with low-e properties. With a slightly deeper tint and a further improved solar performance as noted by a lower solar heat gain coefficient, there is a Pilkington Solar-E Plus tint perfect for any new commercial building project or renovation.

The products are available in a range of colors – Grey, Arctic Blue, Graphite Blue, and Blue-Green.

Applications

Pilkington Solar-E™ Plus products can be used in single glazing applications provided the coating faces the interior of the building. They provide attractive solutions to various applications where good light transmittance with enhanced solar control performance is required. 

Thanks to its low exterior light reflectance, Pilkington Solar-E™ Plus can be used for modern glass facades where high reflectance is prohibited or undesirable. Where a safety glass is required, the products can be specified as toughened or laminated glass.

The Pilkington Solar-E™ Plus tint is perfect for any new commercial building project or renovation. This new range of tints includes Grey, Arctic Blue, Blue-Green, and Graphite Blue.

Benefits
