SCHOTT MIRONA® - semi-transparent mirrored glass

At a Glance

The switch from glass to mirror

When the space behind the glass is dark, SCHOTT MIRONA® glass is an elegant mirror. Light transforms it into a transparent window – a surprising phenomenon that enables sophisticated staging of spaces and objects. It's an amazing effect, and unlike switchable glass products, this effect results solely from the coatings of MIRONA® glass. The brightness behind the glass determines if MIRONA is a mirror or a transparent window.

Technical Information

The special MIRONA® characteristics are made possible by the sol-gel dipping process developed by SCHOTT. The glass is dipped in different metal oxide solutions.

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).

MIRONA®
Standard
Extra-clear low-iron float glass coated on both sides with an optical interference layer that enables defined reflection and transmission. 63 ± 5 34 ± 5
MIRONA®
High Reflective
Extra-clear low-iron float glass coated on both sides with the “High Reflective Coating”. This optical interference layer enables higher reflection and defined transmission. 42 ± 5 55 ± 5
MIRONA®
Beamsplitter
Extra-clear low-iron float glass with an anti-reflective coating on one side and the “High Reflective Coating” on the other. This allows for a defined reflection and transmission with virtually no annoying double reflection.
