Difference between Reflective Glass and Tinted glass

 

Glass is an amorphous inorganic non-metallic material, which is usually made of a variety of inorganic minerals (such as quartz sand, borax, boric acid, barite, barium carbonate, limestone, feldspar, soda ash, etc.) as its main raw materials, and a small amount of auxiliary raw materials. Its main components are silica and other oxides. The chemical composition of ordinary glass is Na2SiO 3, CaSiO 3, SiO 2 or Na2O CaO 6SiO 2, etc. The main component is silicate compound salt, which is an amorphous solid with irregular structure. Widely used in buildings, used for wind insulation and light transmission, belongs to mixtures. In home decoration, we often use glass as decoration in home decoration. The effect of glass on houses varies according to the types of glass. In this article, we will mainly discuss the difference between reflective glass and tinted glass.

 

Different features reflective glass and tinted glass

 

Reflective glass is coated with one or more layers of metal, alloy or metal compound film on the surface of glass to change the optical properties of glass to meet certain specific requirements.  Reflective glass is essentially ordinary float glass with a metallic coating that cuts off solar heat. This special metallic coating also provides a one-way mirror effect, preventing visibility from the outside and thus preserving privacy. Reflective glass is used primarily for structural façade glazing. Depending on the characteristics of the products, coated glass can be divided into the following categories: heat reflective glass, low-radiation glass, low-E, conductive film glass, etc.

While tinted glass is a kind of energy-saving decorative glass which can not only absorb heat rays from sunlight, but also maintain good transparency. Tinted glass usually has a certain color, so it is also called colored endothermic glass. Tinted glass has blue, brown, grey, green, golden and other colors. Tinted glass can effectively absorb the radiation heat of the sun and produce "cold chamber effect" to achieve the effect of heat shielding and energy saving. It is through the sunshine that it becomes soft and avoids glare. It can effectively absorb the ultraviolet rays of the sun and prevent the fading and deterioration of indoor articles. Bright color, durability, can increase the appearance of the building beautiful.

Different function between reflective glass and tinted glass

 

Reflective glass is usually coated with one or more layers of metal or compound film such as chromium, titanium or stainless steel on the surface of glass, which makes the product rich in color, has proper transmittance to visible light, high reflectance to infrared ray and high absorptivity to ultraviolet ray. Therefore, it is also called sunlight control glass. It is mainly used for building and glass curtain wall with low radiation. Glass is a thin film system consisting of multi-layer silver, copper or tin metals or their compounds on the surface of glass. The product has high transmittance to visible light, high reflectivity to infrared rays and good heat insulation performance. It is mainly used in buildings, automobiles, ships and other transportation vehicles. Because of the poor strength of the film, it is generally made into hollow glass for use; Conductive film glass is used in glass. The surface is coated with conductive thin films such as indium tin oxide, which can be used for heating, defrosting, defogging of glass and liquid crystal display screen.

 

Tinted glass is a special kind of glass, also known as endothermic glass, which can usually block about 50% of the sunlight radiation. For example, 6 mm thick blue glass can only penetrate 50% of the solar radiation, while brown and bronze endothermic glass can only penetrate 25% of the solar radiation. In addition, tinted glass can effectively absorb the radiation of the sun and produce "cold chamber effect", which can achieve the effect of heat shielding and energy saving; it can absorb more visible light, make the sunlight through soften, avoid glare and improve indoor color; moreover, tinted glass can absorb more ultraviolet rays of the sun, effectively prevent the fading and deterioration of indoor articles caused by ultraviolet rays; it has a certain degree of transparency. It can clearly observe the outdoor scenery; moreover, it has bright color and durability, and can increase the appearance of the building beautiful. Therefore, colored glass is widely used in areas requiring both daylighting and thermal insulation. It can reasonably utilize sunlight, adjust indoor temperature, save air conditioning costs, and has a good decorative effect on the shape of buildings. Generally used as doors and windows of buildings or glass curtain walls.
