About The Application Of Low-E glass In The Construction industry

Mar. 19, 2019

In contemporary cities, with the emergence of high population density and three-dimensional traffic, more and more high-rise buildings are appearing in front of people. As the demand for decorative properties of buildings continues to increase, the use of building facades such as glass curtain walls continues to increase, and the use of glass as building materials continues to increase. When choosing building glass, people not only pay attention to its artistic aesthetic characteristics, but also consider the issues of thermal insulation, energy consumption cost, light pollution problem and the comfort and balance of projected sunlight. As a result, new glass materials have emerged, and Low-E glass, which has excellent thermal insulation and good light transmission, is one of them. It is increasingly attracting attention from architects, developers and even users. . This article will discuss this material slightly.

High Transmission Low-E Glass, or Low Emissivity glass, is a film-based product that is coated with multiple layers of metal or other compounds on the surface of the glass. Low-E glass has excellent thermal and optical properties compared to ordinary glass materials. By coating a metal film on the surface of the transparent glass plate, such as a low-emissivity film based on silver, the heat loss caused by radiation from the room to the outside can be greatly reduced, thereby ensuring the thermal comfort balance in the room, saving the cause. The fuel consumed by heating also slows down the greenhouse effect caused by carbon dioxide emissions. In addition, Ultra Large Low-E Glass has the same good transmittance as ordinary glass in the visible range. Short waves in the sun shine through the glass and illuminate the objects in the room. When these objects are heated, they will be radiated again in the form of long waves. These radiated long waves are blocked by Low-E glass and returned to the room, which also reduces indoor heat loss. Regardless of the indoor and outdoor temperature difference, the use of this low-emissivity glass can achieve the ideal state of "warm winter and cool summer".
