AGC releases “Sunbalance Aqua Green” and “Sunbalance Pure Clear”

Post Time:Apr 13,2012Classify:Company NewsView:407

AGC (Asahi Glass Co., Ltd.) will launch four new products, including “SunbalanceTM Aqua Green” and “SunbalanceTM Pure TM Clear,” under the high thermal insulation Low-E pairglass “SunbalanceTM” series. These products will be manufactured at its Kashima Plant (Kamisu City, Ibaraki Prefecture) by using one of the world’s largest coating facilities, which will begin operation in May, and will be released in succession from June.


Compared with the existing “SunbalanceTM” series ecoglass products, the new products contribute to greater energy saving, with reduced heating and cooling loads through achieving higher energy-saving performance and reduced lighting loads through enabling higher transmission of visible light.


There has been a rapidly increasing need for making buildings more energy efficient as consumers become more appreciative of comfort and health-consciousness and as needs for energy conservation rise amid the recent tight energy supply conditions. As a result, consumers are paying attention to glass products with high energy saving performance. In line with this trend, demand for Ecoglass that achieves high energy conservation is rising for new single-family houses and condominiums as well as for   commercial buildings, and we expect that this demand will increase further in the future. Meanwhile,   with the diffusion of ecoglass, customers require improvement of performance and expansion of lineup,   such as products with higher heat insulation/shielding performance; products that show higher energy-saving performance and make indoor environments brighter at the same time; and products which come with a wide range of color options to suit various situations.


In order to meet the rising needs of consumers, AGC will add the following new products to the “SunbalanceTM” series product lineup. Both of the products come in standard-type and in higher-performance type (E-series) with higher heat insulation performance. The features of the new products are as follows.


1.SunbalanceTM Aqua Green E (high-performance type) / Aqua Green (standard type) (due for release       on June 26)


Products which have both a high heat shielding effect for protecting against heat and a high heat insulating effect for protecting against cold, and which demonstrate extremely high energy-saving performance throughout the year. These types of products area suitable for use in buildings in the Kanto and Western region of Japan


Providing heat shielding about two times greater and heat insulation about 2.5times greater than ordinary double glazing glass (comparison between Aqua Green E and double glazing glass which is  composed of 3 mm-thick glass and a 12 mm-thick air layer).


Achieving a lighter reflected color tone compared with AGC’s existing product (Green), which makes            it better blend with the exterior of a building.


2. SunbalanceTM Pure Clear E (high-performance type) / Pure Clear (standard type) (due for release on       August 1)


Products with a high heat insulating effect for protecting against cold and a high transmission of            visible light for increased brightness indoors, and which are suitable for use in buildings in cold            regions and in north-facing windows.


Achieving heat insulation and brightness about 10% greater than AGC’s existing product (Silver).


Enhanced transparency compared with AGC’s existing product (Silver), which makes it better blend with the exterior of a building.
