NSG’s stand at glasstec will have on show the newest vacuum insulated glass unit, Pilkington Super Spacia™
Visitors to NSG Group’s stand at glasstec will have the chance to see recently-introduced value-added products and innovative solutions suitable for a wide range of architectural projects.
The NSG Group, manufacturer of glass under the Pilkington brand, will be exhibiting its latest innovations at glasstec 2018, the world’s leading glass industry trade fair, in Dusseldorf 23-26 October 2018.
Visitors to Stand D38 in Hall 10, will be able to explore the recently-introduced value-added products and innovative solutions suitable for a wide range of architectural projects, whatever their particular challenges and budget.
Featured will be the newest vacuum insulated glass unit, Pilkington Super Spacia™. It is slightly thicker than the standard Pilkington Spacia™ at a total overall thickness of 10.2 mm, but has the lowest Ug-value equal to 0.7 W/m2K of all Pilkington Spacia™ products. Additionally, it has a wider pillar array than the standard Pilkington Spacia™.
Also showcasing will be a range of new solar control glass, such as Pilkington Suncool™ Dynamic, which is powered by Suntuitive®, and Pilkington Suncool™ Q 60/25. The first is a thermochromic laminated safety glass, which adapts to changing incoming solar heat radiation conditions throughout the day and seasons. The second is a neutral, superior solar control glass with high colour stability, low reflection and superb selectivity. The stand will also exhibit a Future Window concept – a fully autonomous dynamic working window element that fits into the SmartSkin concept of the company Physee consisting of an active element to control light transmission and g-value. This example uses electrochromic glass from the company EControl-Glas.
The NSG Group will also unveil a second generation digital display mirror applied in a touch screen and a special chromium-based mirror, which is resistant to both corrosion and humidity. Coated with a highly reflective mirror coating, the Pilkington MirroView™ range of products is ideal for concealing digital displays and video screens when they are turned ‘off’. When the display is turned ‘on’, the glass allows the display to show through. The range is also suitable for touch screen applications. Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome is a very versatile chromium-based mirror that can be used in a variety of interior and decorative applications, such as bathrooms, hotel lobbies, health clubs or gyms, as well as façade panels, or in technical applications such as commercial refrigeration and lighting systems etc.
Also on display will be innovative products that are prototypes in development. One example is the use of a technology to upgrade properties of glass products for diverse market segments. An innovation that is particularly promising as a wide variety of properties can be achieved at a reasonable cost. A good example of this being showcased on the stand, is the enamelled spandrel glass with a new anti-graffiti coating.
In the area of PV/BIPV, on show will be a PV spandrel solution that allows a building to generate energy as an environmentally-friendly and aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional energy sources.
Visitors to the stand will also have the opportunity to learn more about the full product range presented in a new on-line Global Product Directory.
