This course will enable you to be able to define the solar energy spectrum and common glass performance measures, discuss the manufacturing processes for pyrolytic and MSVD low-e coatings, identify how passive and solar control low-e coatings differ and impact glass performance measures, and how low-e coatings improve energy efficiency and earn LEED® credit contributions.
Glass Production, Processing & Performance provides an introduction to the different types of glass that are available and how to use them. Significant emphasis is placed on coated glasses, including the common types of low-e application processes and the impacts on energy and environmental performance. In addition, different types of flat glass processing and fabrication methods, as they relate to specifying glass, are also covered.
