What is Anti Reflective glass?

When light passes from air into glass and then back into air, the transitions cause part of it to be reflected. Artglass AR coating alters the light transmission qualities of glass surfaces, virtually eliminating reflections and maximizing light transmission.

Anti Reflective Glass

Invisible Glass

Conventional picture framing glass typically reflects 8% of incoming light, distracting the viewer with mirror-like reflections. With Artglass AR, light reflection is as low as 0.5% thus offering 16 times less reflection and eliminating any mirror-like effects. Artglass AR provides 99% light transmission, making it practically invisible so all the viewer sees is pure art.

True Colour Rendering

Neutral colours in reflection - other anti-reflective coatings tend to colour the reflective light, causing green, blue or red reflections that distract from the pure art viewing experience. Artglass AR has the most neutral reflected colour in the industry.
