Guardian’s automotive infrared reflective glass (SilverGuard IRR) reduces the amount of sunlight and heat that penetrates a vehicle’s windshield by 23% compared to a more conventionally tinted windshield. The reduction in heat penetration enables auto manufacturers to reduce the size and energy draw of air conditioning systems. This, in turn, leads to an overall weight savings, as well as a reduction in fuel consumption and pollutants.
