Solar Management Glass

Enhanced solar performance.

The Solar Management Glass (SMG) product family balances light transmission with improved solar gain to meet various customer and application requirements. It combines maximum solar heat absorbing capabilities while exceeding 70% visible light transmission with standard green glass aesthetics in varying shades, depending on customer needs.

Performance

Reduces solar load inside a vehicle by absorbing a larger portion of the sun's heat than standard green glass.

Meets a minimum of 70% visible light transmission.

Applications

SMG II is primarily used in windshield applications and other vehicle uses that require the highest visible light transmission available.

SMG III and SMG IV are largely used as body glass for the rest of the vehicle (non-windshield applications), including backlites, sidelites and more.

Additional transportation segments that require solar management.
