Schott® AntiReflective is a product group of anti-reflective glass with optical interference coatings, dip-coated on both sides with thin layers of metal oxide, reducing light reflection to less than 1%, compared with 8% for conventional glass.
-Amiran® is a glazing product that uses float glass (neutral or tinted), crown glass or Pyran® fire-proof glass, with an anti-reflective treatment of thin layers of metal oxide dip-coated on both surfaces of the glass. This product is used for glazing storefronts, as it prevents the reflections normally produced by intense illumination. It reduces light reflection to less than 1% and has a high level of absorption for ultra violet radiation, which also helps to retard the fading of the products displayed.
The glass has maximum fabrication dimensions of 3770 x 1770 mm and thicknesses of 4,5,6,8, and 12 mm. It can be curved, engraved and drilled. It can be tempered or laminated to make safety glass or assembled as insulated glazing units, achieving Ug values up to 1.1 W/m2K.
-Mirogard® is an anti-reflective glass that reduces reflection almost 100% through dip-coating with several thin coats of metal oxides. This glass faithfully reproduces the colours of the objects on display making it suitable for the exposition of artworks, as well as for protective covers on electric and electronic devices. Within certain limits this glass can also be curved or tempered. It is available in thicknesses of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 mm, with standard sizes up to 1900 x 1250 mm.

Due to its good colour reproduction, Mirogard is suitable for protecting paintings and photographs.
