Unlike conventional solar control materials which uses dark and reflective tints to control the sun’s heat, V-KOOL®’s advanced technology combines high performance solar control with high visible light transmission. Its “intelligent” window coating not only allows more than 70% light transmission, but also distinguishes and blocks out up to 94% infra-red radiation and 99% ultra-violet radiation, without impeding either clarity or visibility, day or night.
ULTIMATELY IT ALLOWS US TO MAKE GLASS THAT IS NO MORE THAN 1” THICK, YET HAVING THE INSULATION OF A WALL 6” THICK V-KOOL® Spectrally Selective Technology was built upon research from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
in the 1970s, when it started out humbly as a transparent energy conversation film. A significant breakthrough in Surface and Particle Science later led to the development of V-KOOL® spectrally selective coating and the launch of V-Kool 55.
V-KOOL® films are manufactured in Germany and USA, tapping on a complex sputter-metalized, multi-layered dielectric coating process. This ISO-certified production process involves the use of the state-of-the-art multi-chamber DC Magnetron-Sputtering machine, which costs an investment of US$24 million. Other manufacturing and R&D facilities are in Japan, USA and Singapore.
