Controlling the reflection of the likes of sunlight to give glass an anti-glare effect
A chemical-based surface treatment (chemical AG process) is applied directly to the surface of glass to form microasperities and give the glass an anti-glare effect under the likes of sunlight.
The advantages of performing AG process directly onto a glass workpiece
|Resin plates, coatings, films
|Excellence in design
|NSC’s AG process is able to keep the beauty and high-quality texture which belong to the unique properties of glass workpieces.
|Looks whitish and cheapened on some occasions.
|No deformation will occur while the heat is kept within 600℃.
→ Applicable in the situation where heat-resisting or flame-resisting materials are required.
|Most of the materials start to change in quality under the heat with a range from 80℃ to 120℃.
|The glass surface has high resistance to various kinds of chemicals.
→ Applicable to the environment involved with chemicals.
|Chemical degradation occurs when contacting with organic solvents.
|No chemical change
→ No change in quality even after a long-term use in outdoor spaces
|The color may turn yellow under the effect of UV radiation.
|Pencil hardness of at least 9H
→ Nearly no change in quality at locations where the products are frequently touched or rubbed.
|Hardness scale of most of the products is ranged from 2H to 6H.
NSC’s AG process is able to control the haze within a range of 1％～ 90％.
Appearance of the workpiece is adjustable according to the purpose of use. Contact us for details.
Excellent Writing Touch with Stylus
A person using a stylus to write on glass treated with the AG process will experience the same sensation as they would when using a pencil.
The AG process can be applied to glass substrates with a size of up to 730mm × 920mm.
Optional processes including ion exchange glass strengthening (as postprocessing), curving, and printing are also available.
