Does STRATO® provide performance with respect to solar control and energy saving?
Satinal has developed STRATO® FRESCO, a new generation of high-performance EVA film using nanoparticle technology.
FRESCO is designed to give laminated glass more efficient solar heat control properties than monolithic transparent glass and laminates with traditional transparent EVA film: the film absorbs UV rays and infrared energy (NIR), allowing maximum visible light transmission.
The graphic clearly shows this concept: a laminated glass with EVA film without protection UV-IR (yellow line), has a high transmission of visible light but allows to pass both UV rays, very harmful to people and objects, and Infrared rays.
However, if we analyze the behavior of a laminated glass with one (blue line), two (line orange), or three films (grey line) of STRATO® FRESCO, you will notice that the value of the transmission of the visible light (max 80%), is opposite to that of the infrared rays (min. 5%).
These characteristics are very important because they let you recreate in buildings, houses and apartments, a comfortable indoor environment, especially during the summer season.
By reducing the use of air conditioning, you will get economic benefits: reduction of electricity costs and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions-.
STRATO® FRESCO can replace low-emission glass (Low-E) because it reduces heat transmission with the advantage of not having a delicate glass to handle: it represents a cheaper solution from a processing, handling and purchasing point of view.
What are the advantages?
- Constantly high light transmission with tunable solar heat gain coefficient as low as 0.3
- Color neutralit
- Low haze
- Low reflection of visible light
- Significant and sustainable energy savings
- Compatible with STRATO® Extra Chiaro System
- Lowering your energy cost and CO2 footprint of your building and car, block solar heat radiation
- It can be easily tuned by customer to any desired solar heat performance
Where can it be applied?
- Suited for curved glass
- Curtain walls
- Sloped/overhead glazing
- Residential and commercial facades
