Comparison of anti-glare and anti-reflective glass
Both types of glass improve the viewing of displays but possess different properties due to their differing surfaces, so are suited to different needs.
Anti-glare glass: An alternative for difficult light conditions
Chemical etching gives float glass a slightly roughened surface. This disperses reflections across a larger solid angle so that remaining reflections seem less disruptive at any position taken by the viewer (transmission and reflection values remain the same). Anti-glare glass provides good readability in the open, as well as in bright, pointed light conditions. It’s also relatively insensitive to dirt or fingermarks and therefore especially suitable for touch applications.
Anti-reflective glass: The multi-talented CONTURAN® for a diverse range of applications
CONTURAN® anti-reflective glass is a float glass with an optical interference coated on one or both sides that significantly reduces surface reflections. A specially developed immersion procedure is used to apply multiple metal oxide layers just a few nanometers thick. Reflections are reduced optically by up to 90 % and the glass appears invisible. At a transmission of more than 98 % and brilliant color rendering, viewers can focus on what's important.
