Glass Types

Coated Glass

Most low-e coated glass is produced by applying a special coating to sheets of finished glass in a process called sputter coating. These "soft coat" products have some limitations. the coating can be scratched or damaged, and can potentially deteriorate with exposure to air, giving the product a limited shelf life. Much of the fabrication process, including bending and tempering, must often be done before the glass is coated. Edge deletion is usually recommended for soft coat insulating glass units. Our low-e products are produce by a patented pyrolytic process that exposes hot glass to chemical vapors during the actual float glass production, where they bond to the glass on the molecular level. Having a pyrolytic surface, fired on at over 1200ºF, pyrolytic products are durable, bendable, and post-temperable. In addition because the pyrolytic surface doesn't degrade like a sputter coating, it can be warehoused locally for availability, reducing project lead times across the country and around the world.
