This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. 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.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the manufacturing processes for float glass and pyrolytic and magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) soft coat low-e coatings.
  • Understand the solar energy spectrum and common glass performance measures.
  • Compare and contrast how passive and solar control low-e coatings differ and impact glass performance.
  • Identify commercial energy use and how low-e coatings can improve energy efficiency and earn LEED® credits.

Pre-Requisite: None.
