AGC Automotive Europe has introduced its darkest grey glass to date.

The glass is intended primarily for car roofs and rear windows.

This glass affords greater privacy and thermal comfort (solar protection) for the vehicle occupants, and thus also reduces the need for air conditioning.

The AGC dark grey glass boasts a light transmission factor of 8% and a solar factor of 32%.

Available in thicknesses of 3.85 and 4.85 mm, it extends the range of AGC green and grey glass available already.

This expansion of the tinted glass range is combined with advanced glass solutions for energy control such as coated glass and variable transmission glass.

"Together these developments demonstrate our determination to constantly progress with our automotive customers in their search for added value," concludes Jean-Marc Meunier, General Manager AGC.
