Description

Pilkington Suncool™ is a range of solar control off-line coated products used in insulating glass units. The coating is designed to reflect the short wave solar radiation. Thanks to the low-emissivity characteristics of the coating, the long wave radiation (generated by the heating, lighting and buildings’ occupants) is reflected from the glass back into the building. Pilkington Suncool™ effectively balances solar control with high levels of natural light.


The range includes following glass products:

  • Pilkington Suncool™ Optilam 70/40.
  • Pilkington Suncool™ Optilam 70/35.
  • Pilkington Suncool™ Optilam 66/33.
  • Pilkington Suncool™ Optilam 60/31.
  • Pilkington Suncool™ Optilam 50/25.
  • Pilkington Suncool™ Optilam 30/16.


Features and benefits:

Pilkington Suncool™ range offers a wide range of benefits:

  • Superior solar control performance with the highest level of thermal insulation (U-value down to 1.0 W/m2K in a double glazed unit with 90% argon filled), reducing the need for cooling and heating the building.
  • High selectivity index (light-to-heat), offering low solar heat gains without significantly reducing the internal light levels.
  • Solar radiation transmittance (g-value) ranging from 0.42 down to 0.17.
  • External light reflections ranging from a low 10% up to 42%.
  • Light transmittance performance ranging from 70% to 28% giving excellent light/heat ratios.
  • Wide range of colours and appearances, providing solutions for the most demanding designs.
  • Range of light transmission and reflection.
  • To be used solely in Insulating Glass Units; argon/krypton gas filling can be used to achieve higher thermal insulation.
  • Can be enhanced when combined with other Pilkington products to provide additional benefits such as self-cleaning, noise control, safety or security properties.
  • Can also be combined with Pilkington Optiwhite™ for improved light and solar transmittance properties.
  • Harmonising spandrel panels available, allowing freedom in design of complete glass façades.
  • Ideal for large areas of glazing to control solar gain whilst providing high light levels.
  • Cost effective solution for reducing energy consumption.
  • Pilkington Suncool™ can be supplied in annealed, toughenable, laminated forms and toughened on special request.
  • Available in 6 mm, 8 mm and 10 mm thickness (4 mm available in some products, 12 mm may be available on special request).


Performance:

Light Transmission, External Reflectance, Solar Factor (g), Ug Value (W/m²K) etc are dependent on configuration, please consult manufacturer for details.
