Low-E glass
Explanation:
Low-emittance (low-E) coating. Microscopically thin, virtually invisible, metal or metallic oxide layers deposited on a window or skylight glazing surface primarily to reduce the U-factor by suppressing radiative heat flow. A typical type of low-E coating is transparent to the solar spectrum (visible light and short-wave infrared radiation) and reflective of long-wave infrared radiation.
E' un tipo di coating (rivestimento) applicato al vetro per migliorarne il rendimento energetico.
