Pyrolitic Reflective Glass, with its reflective coating, can also be subject to different
processes without suffering alterations in its properties.

Manufactured in the float line the pyrolitic reflective glass, is produced by deposits of
chemical vapours on the glass surface in a high-temperature process, building a highly
durable heat-reflective silver collared film.

The heat reflective property of pyrolitic is in the range of 54%, and while it will let 40% of
the daylight pass through, it will eliminate 80% of UV rays which severely harms colours
and textures.

The major benefit of pyrolitic glass is the high durability of its reflective film, which is
integrated to the glass surface in such manner that it will withstand further processing at
high temperatures – such as bending, heat strengthening or fully tempering –without

Given the high strength of its coating, pyrolitic may be used in a second, third or fourth
surface for the different installation systems


Pyrolitic glass panes are ideal for facades or complete buildings where a maximum view
of the exterior and good lighting in interiors are required, without incurring in expensive
air conditioning equipment and its costly power and maintenance demands.

Technological progress has allowed ordinary glass to be made safe. This is how it is done:

The glass is tempered to obtain a product that is 4 to 5 times tougher. Pyrolitic glass is
this state can be used in much application where safety is paramount. If a sheet of this
glass were to break it would be into small particles.

Alternatively, pyrolitic glass can be laminated, either annealed or heat strength glass,
after which its shattering propensity is the same as that of ordinary glass, except that the
fragments stick to the body of the glass and so protect the window space covered. This
solution can be applied to solariums an all cases where it is specified that the property
itself as well as its occupants must be protected.

Only the imagination limits the ways in which pyrolitic glass can be used.


For best results in pyrolitic glass applications, please take the following precautions:

The reflective film must be installed inboard to prevent it becoming scratched by abrasive
dust and other contaminants. This side with reflective film would produce a single
reflection, when the non-reflective surface produces a double reflection.

Soft soap and water or solutions containing up to 20% of ammonia, should be used for
cleaning. Fibers, brushes or any other material that might scratch the surface of the film
should not be used.


We recommend this very beautiful DARK GREEN REFLECTIVE, made on base of a Dark
Green Float with a pyrolitic (on-line) very high strength reflective coating. The high
durability of the reflective coat allows this reflective glass to be subject to different
processes without altering its thermal and optical properties.
Used in position 2, it still gives a very pure and beautiful green color and reflects up to
26% of the light.
This unique green color makes the difference among all other green reflective in the
market as you may see thru the several nice projects realized by our customers using
this product.
