ArcLight increases luminaire efficiency, optical performance, and light distribution for a wide range of lighting products. With a low index of refraction, this coating allows up to 7% more light through glass which renders the glass virtually invisible.
This technology is easily integrated as a drop-in solution to any glass fabrication process. ArcLight provides excellent light transmission across the entire visible spectra and results in a neutral reflection color which is hardly noticeable.
There is an especially enhanced transmittance for blue wavelengths which are critical for LED performance.
On top of increased power, lower costs, and safer materials, WattGlass coatings have long shelf-lives and two distinct formulations - one for high temp (HT) cure and one for low temp (LT) cures. HT is optimized as a drop-in solution for tempering lines and LT is used in manufacturing that does not allow for tempering-level temperatures.
WattGlass Solar ARC holds up strongly to industry standard durability and reliability testing. After 1000 cycles of abrasion testing to EN1096.2, our coating showed less than 0.15% in degradation of the solar weighted transmittance. [[IEC certifications?]]
The WattGlass team pioneered a novel water-based anti-reflective coating for solar glass which cuts overhead costs for the industry standard solvent-based chemistry used in anti-reflective coatings. WattGlass coatings also have the added benefits of being better for the environment and make waste protocols simpler to adhere to.
