CONTURAN®THE ANTI-REFLECTIVE-COATED GLASS FOR A CLEAR VIEW

At a glance

CONTURAN® is an anti-reflective glass with an optical interference coating on either one or both sides. A special dip coating process is used to coat the glass with multiple layers of metal oxides which are only nanometers in thickness. As a result, this coating design prevents optical reflections from sunlight or artificial light being caused by the glass surface.

CONTURAN® has already proven itself in a wide range of different applications, including indicator board covers, railroad destination indicators, anti-reflective filters for technical displays, and many more. It can basically be put to use anywhere irritating reflections occur.

Key facts

  • Reduction of irritating reflections
  • High transmission
  • Increased contrast
  • High abrasion resistance extends the lifetime of the respective object
  • High chemical stability means that CONTURAN® is hardly vulnerable and easy to clean
  • CONTURAN® DARO can be used in touch applications
  • Ideal characteristics for use as protection cover
  • Appears to be invisible and neutral in color, yet enables perfect viewing
  • Good view of dimly-lit items
  • Available in any customized shape, form or set-up
  • Can be adapted to meet customer needs by applying UV protection or weather-resistant layers
