SSG® LUXAR is an anti-reflective coated glass that provides improved visual transmission, picture clarity and reduced glare with its very low residual reflection. Traditional glass reflects about 8% of the incident light. SSG® LUXAR, however, reflects only about 0.5% of the incident light, allowing 99.5% of light to pass through without unwanted reflections or mirror-like effects. It is thus used in structures where the crystal-clear quality of glass is key, such as retail displays, stadiums, and viewing galleries.
SSG® LUXAR provides a new dimension for glass as it is seemingly invisible with almost no reflectance or colour distortions in transmission. Produced with a durable multi-layered optical thin coating with Magnetron Sputtering Technology which performs like hard coating, it can be tempered, laminated, double-glazed or silkscreen printed. SSG® LUXAR is available on regular float, low iron and tinted green and grey float glass. For laminated glass application, single side coated SSG® LUXAR should be used with the uncoated side facing the interlayer.

SSG® LUXAR can be used in laminated or insulated glass to provide further mechanical strength and safety.
SSG® LUXAR is produced by Magnetron Sputtering Technology which creates a superior hard coating finish. The multi-layered coating of metal oxide does not corrode, but is hard wearing and durable. In terms of abrasion resistance, SSG® LUXAR is comparable to regular clear float glass.
SSG® LUXAR improves transparency and increases light transmission with its high degree of clarity and non-reflective surface.
SSG® LUXAR reduces glare, mirror-like effects and reflections to a minimum. With a reflection of less than 0.5%, the non-reflective properties are optimised for direct viewing of the glass, making it almost invisible.
