Anti-reflective glass (non-reflective glass) uses multi-layer vapor deposition coatings on one or two sides of the glass surface to minimize interference caused by reflections. ESI’s anti-reflective coated glass improves usability of displays by reducing reflections while maintaining crisp, sharp images.
ESI anti-reflection coated glass reduces unwanted reflections and improves transmission of images over uncoated glass. The average reduction in reflectivity is from approximately 4% per surface to approximately 0.3% per surface. Therefore, for a double sided coated glass, the reduction is from 8% to 0.6% – a 13X reduction. Transmission is improved by the same factor. Clear float glass averages 92% transmission in the visible light range. A single surface coating improves the transmission to 95% and a double sided coating improves light transmitted to 98-99%.
ESI also offers its proprietary “Easy Clean” hydrophobic treatment which reduces the unwanted finger-print color shadows typical of anti-reflective coatings. It also improves the ability to clean the surface by rejecting static-borne materials and solutions. “Easy Clean” can be cleaned with all common glass or window cleaners without affecting the coatings.
