The dual-coat technology incorporates one pane of 3-millimeter Solarban 70XL glass on the second (#2) surface of the IGU and one 3-millimeter pane of Sungate 500 glass on the fourth (#4) surface, separated by a ½-inch of argon-filled space. The configuration generates a winter nighttime U-value of 0.20, providing insulating performance that is better than or equal to any competing dual-pane IGU on the market.
