SCHOTT AMIRAN®A clear view of what counts

At a glance

Low in reflection, neutral in color, nearly invisible

SCHOTT AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass offers crystal clear transparency, even with a significant difference in the amount of light in front of and behind the pane. It reduces reflections to just a fraction of those seen with conventional glass. This makes AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass the material of choice for display windows and showrooms, museums and glass cabinets, VIP seating areas in stadiums and panorama restaurants, television and recording studios, façades and balustrades, lobbies and foyers.

Crystal clear transparency

Sizes up to 3,770 mm × 1,770 mm ensure transparency even with large surface areas. The boundaries between the outside and inside dissolve, giving you the highest possible freedom of design. Canopies or other structures designed to avoid reflections are no longer necessary. What is more: increased daylight inside will lower your energy costs and lighting expenditures.

Key facts

  • Sizes up to 3770 x 1770 mm (148 x 697 inches)
  • Maximum suppression of reflections on both sides
  • Just under 1% residual reflection
  • Up to 98% transmission
  • Durable, easy to clean and chemically stable
  • CE certified
  • Available in a variety of different glass types
  • Many processing options ( e.g. as tempered safety glass, laminated safety glass or as an insulated glass unit)

Technical data

Innovative technology

SCHOTT AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass is made possible by the sol-gel dipping process developed by SCHOTT. The glass is dipped several times in metal oxide solutions. The drying speed determines the thickness of the layer – with the highest precision.

Hard coating

The metal oxide coating is burned in at 752° to 932° Fahrenheit. Interferences between the oxide layers eliminate reflections later on. The layers are actually much more pure and more stable than conventional PVD techniques (like vapor deposition or sputtering) allow for.

Durable and easy to keep clean

This translates into excellent optical characteristics and makes SCHOTT AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass so incredibly durable. The coating is resistant to scratches and chemical attack. AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass can be easily cleaned using commercially available glass cleaners.

Contact

The range of applications for SCHOTT AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass is very diverse because of the numerous processing options SCHOTT offers. We would be pleased to assist you in developing customized solutions using AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass to help eliminate glare and annoying reflections from your projects.

Multiple applications possible

The range of applications for AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass is very diverse because of the many different processing options SCHOTT offers. AMIRAN® glass can be bent, printed on or drilled. It can be semi-tempered (annealed glass) or processed into safety glass or laminated safety glass. This results in insulated glass that is nearly free from reflections and features either thermal insulation, or protection from the sun or noise or even special solutions that meet the highest safety requirements.
