Invisible Glass™ minimizes reflection
Glass is known throughout the world as a transparent but reflecting material that can be used in many forms for many purposes. But sometimes even slight reflections get in the way, for instance, on windows facing beautiful vistas and
on casings used by museums and art galleries.
Our Invisible Glass™ uses the original coating to minimize reflection, and it is garnering considerable attention from all quarters.

Unique coating technology generates new value in glass
Invisible Glass™ reduces luminous reflectance to approximately 0.08%
Luminous reflectance (i.e., perceptible reflection) in general glass is around 4% per side. This is enough to make glass visible and cast reflections. But Invisible Glass™ boasts a luminous reflectance rate of around 0.08%.
The secret lies in our unique coating technology. Invisible Glass™ minimizes reflection using a combination of layers of various thicknesses and refractive indexes. Layers many thousandths the thickness of a human hair are stacked on both sides of the glass to create a uniform surface.
Invisible Glass™ offers clearer product presentation
Showcases made with Invisible Glass™ virtually eliminate reflection for breathtakingly clear views of the items inside.
