Pilkington OptiView™ is a monolithic glass with a low reflective coating on one surface, which reduces visible light reflectance and allows more visible light to pass through when compared to clear float glass with 8% light reflectance as standard. This results in improved vision through the glass.

Pilkington OptiView™ Protect is a laminated glass with low reflective coatings on surfaces #1 and #4 (both outer surfaces of the laminated glass), which reduces interior and exterior visible light reflectance to around 2%. As a consequence, views from both inside and out are clear, unobscured and virtually reflection-free. Pilkington OptiView™ Protect offers all the traditional benefits of laminated glass, such as improved safety, enhanced security, durability and acoustic properties. Furthermore, it provides protection from UV radiation (UVA and UVB) by blocking over 99% of UV transmittance, helping to reduce fading of the contents and interiors of a building.


Uncoated glass:  Reflectance = 8%


OptiView™ coated glass (1 surface): Reflectance ~5%

Pilkington OptiView™ coated glass (1 surface): Reflectance = ~5%
