LOUIS, Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Solutia Inc. (NYSE: SOA), the world's leading producer of professional window films for automotive, residential and commercial markets, is proud to announce EnerLogic® 70 low-e window film as the newest addition to its award-winning EnerLogic window film series for commercial and residential applications.
Developed as part of Solutia's ongoing commitment to energy efficiency, the EnerLogic window film series features a patent-pending, low-e coating that effectively transforms the insulating power of single-pane windows into double-pane and double-pane windows into triple-pane for year-round energy savings.
Building on the success of EnerLogic 35, launched in 2010, EnerLogic 70 is the next generation of EnerLogic glass insulation technology that combines industry-leading low-e performance with a virtually invisible appearance.
"The performance of this newest EnerLogic film is unprecedented," said Wing Kwang, global business director for Solutia's Performance Films division. "With visible light transmission of up to 70 percent, EnerLogic 70 window film offers energy savings with a clear view that ultimately maintains the look of the existing glass."
With EnerLogic 70 low-e window film, heat from the summer sun is reflected away from windows, easing the stress on air conditioners. In winter, radiant heat from a home's heating system is directed back into the room, decreasing energy use, improving comfort and reducing energy bills during both seasons.
"Today, energy savings and efficiency are not part-time propositions," said Jeremy Verstraete, global business manager for the Performance Films division's architectural segment. "Windows typically account for 25 percent of annual heating and cooling costs, but can be responsible for as much as 40 percent. Energy efficiency must be managed across all seasons in every possible climate region."
In addition to reduced energy bills, further savings and benefits can be attained by choosing EnerLogic 70 window film over other options, such as window replacement. Unlike window replacement, professional window film installation is quick, clean and non-intrusive. Additionally, the refuse generated by window replacement often ends up in landfills.
EnerLogic window film was recently recognized by Architectural Products Magazine for its excellence in product innovation for the following categories: Solar Control Protection, Moisture/Thermal Protection and Windows/Doors/Openings.
