39 G L A S S & G L A S S PROCESSING Clearly smarter Guardian Industries has launched two advanced new products, SunGuard SuperNeutral 70/35 and SunGuard High Durable Diamond 66. SN 70/35 reportedly allows a high light transmission of 70%, combined with a low solar factor of just 35% and an optimum 1.0 ‘U’ value performance. This is achieved in an almost neutral glass which has just 5% colour distortion and is said to allow architects to create anything from a large glazed facade to a casement window, offering the ideal level of ‘energy balance’ between the inside and the outside of the building. “This is the most desirable product in our SunGuard range,” said Paul Anderson, architectural specifications manager at Guardian Industries. “SN 70/35 offers exceptional performance in a solar control glass that is so neutral, it could almost be mistaken for a Low E”. The new SunGuard SN 70/35 will be replacing SunGuard SN 70/37. Joining SN 70/35 is the new Guardian SunGuard HD Diamond 66, which has been designed, says Guardian, to meet demand for completely neutral glass with a highly reflective surface. According to Guardian, the challenge was to create a clear glass that has a high level of shine and reflection without compromising the light transmission or the views through the glass. Most commonly used in double skin facades, HD Diamond 66 is the ideal product for high-profile projects looking to make a statement on city skylines. One step protection The Next Generation Of EVA Films Available in .38mm and .76mm Fully cross-linking product Thinner but stronger EVGUARD 44.1 44.2 Bohle has added a new easy-to-apply glass protection product to its popular BriteGuard system. BriteGuard Express is a one-step version of the BriteGuard surface protection product launched in 2011. Supplied ready to use in 500ml bottles, professional users can apply the product quickly and easily and also use it as a practical give-away for their customers. Unlike the existing BriteGuard range which is designed for professional use and requires three application steps, the new product can be applied onto a clean, dry glass surface and wiped off again with a suitable cloth. The protective effect is activated immediately. BriteGuard Express is appropriate for interior and exterior application, so it can be used as efficiently on glass showers and partitions as on conservatory roofs.
