Final Program

Architects can design buildings and coatings with different colours. They can get their own colour produced they are able to get patterns printed into the coating and they can also change the physical properties. This might refer to the transmission of mobile phone signals. This presentation is a summary of available and upcoming technologies for […]

Coated glass for architectural, automotive or smart glazing applications is produced with equipment that generates thousands of data points every second. Multiple sensors are employed to control individual aspects of the production process. The equipment is already equipped with suitable interfaces to access control systems and feed data in and out of the system. We […]

Solar glass is widely used as a glazing for solar devices like photovoltaic modules and solar-thermal collectors. Different surface structures and anti-reflection coatings are applied for the increase of the annual gain of solar systems. These surfaces are target for dust accumulation especially at sites which are most attractive for solar systems. Hence the spectral […]

Solar Control Coatings and Low Emissivity coatings have been developed rapidly and made a large impact in the upstream glass manufacturing industry just as in the modern architectural freedom. These coatings have been developed to tackle the challenges of keeping heat out of inner areas. Now that we are capable of doing such, time has […]

It is estimated that 100 million to 1 billion birds a year perish due to collisions with glass. In North America, some communities have enacted legislation aimed at protecting birds by calling for the design and installation of bird-safe glazing. Such glazing can be produced by printing human-visible, first-surface coatings on glass, in specific patterns. […]

In the last years the demand on new functions in building glass products growths dramatically to realize smart window applications. The realization of these new functions leads to the development of new glass processing technologies using laser radiation. By means of laser radiation it is possible to change a broad range of properties of the […]

Defined by the building law in each publicly accessible building (e.g. schools, administration etc.) emergency exit routes have to be marked. This is usually realized by means of active or passive lightening systems. The use of passive lightening systems require comprehensive components with an independent, battery-powered energy-supply that produces light even in the case of […]

The visual appearance of facade glass is essential in modern architecture. Designers and building owners carefully choose the coatings which they will apply to their building to make sure that the design intent will be met. Mock ups and coating samples are often not viewed under conditions representing the final installation. Therefore it can happen […]

Functional coatings on glass gain relevance since more and more functions are integrated into today´s glass. This applies particularly to automotive glass applications designed for electric cars which have no waste heat for heating or windshield deicing and defogging. Here, the LowE stack can provide additional benefit which will drive the demand for high quality […]
