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 148 3/4" × 69 3/4" 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 148 3/4" x 69 3/4"
  • Minimum reflection on one or both sides
  • 1% residual reflection achievable
  • Up to 98 % transmission
  • Durable, easy to clean and chemically stable
  • CE certified
  • Available in a variety of different substrate glasses
  • Several processing options (as tempered safety glass, laminated safety glass or insulating glass units, for example)

Technical data

Innovative technology

All of this is made possible by the sol-gel dipping process developed by SCHOTT. The glass is dipped in different metal oxide solutions.
 

Hard coating

Once dipped the metal oxide coating layers are burned in at 450 ° C to 500 ° C. The oxidic layers produce interference that actually helps prevent annoying reflections. These layers are actually much purer and especially mechanically and chemically more stable than those processed with conventional PVD techniques (such as vapor deposition or sputtering, for example).

Durable and easy to keep clean

The process results in excellent optical qualities and is what makes AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass so incredibly durable. The coating resists both scratching and chemicals, making AMIRAN® easy to clean with appropriate commercially
available glass cleaners. Please refer to cleaning instructions No. 2001, handling instructions No. 2002 and processing instructions No. 2003.

Contact

The range of applications for AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass goes even further thanks to the many different 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.

Diverse and one-of-a-kind

The range of applications for AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass goes even further thanks to the many different processing options SCHOTT offers. AMIRAN® anti-reflective glass can be bent, printed on or drilled. It can be heat strengthened or processed into tempered safety glass or laminated safety glass. When processed into insulating glass units, it is virtually free from reflections. And it meets a wide range of different demands if specially selected heat insulation, sun protection coating or sound protection assembling are applied or solutions capable of meeting even higher safety requirements are put to use. Even 99 % UV protection is possible.
