WattGlass, a Fayetteville, Arkansas based nanomaterials and coatings company is happy to announce the introduction of WattGlass ARL for Lighting Applications. Building on our core technology for the solar industry, we have developed a unique solution for lighting manufacturers to increase luminaire efficiency. Flat glass lenses are used in a variety of road and area lighting applications where the angle of incidence (AOI) of produced light can be as high as 80˚. By customizing the coating for each application, we allow the luminaire designer to specify the desired AOI for maximum transmission of light. In a recent customer-led study, we found that we could increase the amount of light produced at 70˚ by over 15% with WattGlass ARL, while also increasing total lumen output by 6%. This allowed the luminaire designer to optimize the reflector to more evenly illuminate the area and increase the specified distance between lighting poles resulting in reduced project costs.
