Stopray Stopray description

  • The solar-control function is achieved by applying a C-type metallic coating (EN 1096-1) to the glass
  • Various performance levels and colours available, including a unique neutral, low light-reflection range
  • Some colours can be toughened after the coating has been applied
  • Range of spandrels available in double glazing with Blackpearl
  • Use: always in double glazing (position 2) – single glazings available for glass processors
  • Uses: single glazing – insulating glazing – laminated glass – thermally toughened glass – enamelled glass


  • High level of light transmission, low level of internal solar heat throughput
  • Selectivity (relationship between LT and SF = maximum 2): excellent for the range of neutral colours
  • Suitable for use in all climates: combines solar control in the summer with thermal insulation in the winter. Particularly well suited to tertiary buildings with air conditioning to maintain a comfortable temperature while at the same time keeping energy costs to a minimum
  • Finish: wide range of light-reflection and light-transmission levels
  • Look: different colours – extensive range of neutral colours


  • Coating always applied in position 2
  • Absorption: variable – a thermal shock analysis should beconducted

* Slight aesthetic difference in transmission between Stopray Vision-50 and Stopray-50 T.


Glasses may be heat-treated to enhance their resistance to mechanical and thermal shocks.
