G-Tech will reportedly make low-emission insulated glass for doors, windows and walls, as well as anti-bacterial glass for AGC, using the Japanese company’s technologies. The glass will then be sold to Taiwanese customers, while plans are to to collaborate with local companies to supply glass to home interior designers.
Low-emission insulated glass is used on surfaces that radiate or are exposed to low levels of radiant energy. Used on windows, it helps reduce relative heat gain and keeps homes cooler.
Anti-bacterial glass can kill up to 90% of bacteria and improve health and hygiene in the home, schools, hospitals and airports, the statement said.
