The glass and glazing sector has seen a trend towards clearer float glass substrates in recent years. This demand is driven by the need for a more neutral appearance on the architectural project as well as the need for improved passive energy gain on the residential market.
PLANICLEAR ®'s lower iron content decreases the absorption level - thus increasing the solar gain (g value). An increased passive gain in solar heat can increase a window's total energy balance.
PLANICLEAR® also serves a higher level of Light transmission (LT). This contributes to increase in the level of natural daylight and reduces the need for artificial lighting – creating a more comfortable environment.
PLANICLEAR ®'s lower iron content decreases green coloring levels so the appearance is clearer and more neutral. This contrast is particularly recognizable when viewing the edge of the glass.
PLANICLEAR ® can be used in applications which require a high degree of clarity and neutrality including:
- Windows and doors
- Laminated safety glass
- Interior applications
- Glass facades
PLANICLEAR® is available in:
- Jumbo size (PLF) up to 18000 mm x 3200 mm, DLF 2250 x 3210 mm, DLF 2000 x 3210 mm
- Thicknesses: 2.9 - 3.9 - 5.9 - 8 - 10 - 12 - 15 - 19 mm
