Anti-Reflective Glass

Dec 15, 2017

Anti-Reflective glass (AR glass) is a glass that has been optically coated on one or two sides to diminish reflections and increase the light transmission, to reduce surface glare and increase substrate transmission and brightness offering better contrast definition by reducing surface reflection over a specific wavelength range. Ghost images and multiple reflection can be minimized and possibly eliminated by applying an AR coating on the glass surface. Our anti-reflective coatings are all dielectric single or multilayers and are designed for low reflectance and high transmittance in the UV, visible and near IR spectral bands

Features of anti-reflective glass:

  • High transmission & low reflectance

  • Standard broadband AR reduces surface reflection from 4% to less than 0.5%

  • Anti-Smudge coating can be applied over AR to reduce “fingerprinting”

  • Hydrophobic topcoat can be applied to eliminate moisture buildup

Typical Applications:

  • Electronic Displays

  • Optics for LED lighting

  •  LCD Displays

  •  Front Panel Displays

  • Thin-Film LCD Heater Panels

  • Instrumentation Windows

  • Lighting

  • Telecommunications

  • Architectural Windows

  • Storefronts
