Technical Information

CONTURAN® is an anti-reflective floated glass with a one or two sided interference optical coating that largely prevents surface reflections. For this purpose, several nanometer-thin metal oxide layers are applied in a special dipping process. This reduces reflections by 90 % making the glass seem almost invisible. With a transmission of > 98 %, the viewer can focus on the essentials.
