AGC to Launch Sales of Clearsight, Anti-reflective Glass Ideal for Outdoor Use

AGC (Asahi Glass Co., Ltd.; Head Office: Tokyo; President & CEO: Kazuhiko) will start sales of ClearsightTM on October 2, 2014 in Japan.

Clearsight is anti-reflective glass with improved weather and chemical resistant coating, highly suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.  

AGC’s anti-reflective glass has special coating applied on both surfaces, which reduces light reflectance on the glass surface and minimizes reflection on the glass. Since it appears as if there is no glass at all, there is a growing need for anti-reflective glass used for museum and store showcases in which paintings and products are seen through glass.

AGC has so far been selling imported anti-reflective glass for architectural use, but these products are not suitable for outdoor use, such as store windows, because the coating does not have a sufficient durability.

To enable outdoor use, AGC leveraged its long-established coating design technology and developed unique coating that is highly weather and chemical resistant. With improved coating durability, Clearsight can be used outdoor, and not only that, it can also be processed into double glazing glass and laminated glass. This new anti-reflective glass will help improve visibility in various applications.

Clearsight will be manufactured at AGC’s Kashima Plant. Manufacturing entirely from the production of raw glass to the fabrication processes, AGC will be able to meet various customer requests in size, thickness and delivery time.
