Glass for thermal insulation-energy saving
Thermal insulation glass can prevent outdoor heat in tropical areas and reduce indoor heat loss in cold regions.
There are three primary forms of heat transfer: heat conduction, heat radiation, and heat convection. The thermal insulation glass mainly focuses on reducing heat conduction and radiation.
Reduce heat conduction
The thermal conductivity of gas is minimal. So comparing with single-layer glass, insulating glass is a better choice for heat conduction reduction.
Reduce heat radiation
The thermal emissivity of each material is different. The maximum thermal emissivity value is 1—the lower, the higher heat reflection. As an example, the glass itself has a thermal emissivity of 0.91, which is very high. In contrast, a metal material such as silver has a low emissivity of 0.02. Coating multiple layers of metal or other compounds on the glass surface can reduce the heat radiation and keep the high transmission. As a result, low E glass has an excellent heat radiation reduction performance.
Glass with thermal insulation function reduces the energy consumption for both heating and cooling, has an excellent energy-saving effect. Please contact with VSOM GLASS team to get a detailed glass configuration for your climate.
