Solar control glass is a hi-tech product developed by the glass industry to allow sunlight to pass through a window or façade while radiating and reflecting away a large degree of the sun's heat. The indoor space stays bright and much cooler than would be the case if normal glass were used.

At least that what Pilkingtons say.

In the N, it is fancy windscreen glass without tinting designed to keep the car cooler without reducing vision in and out.

Is that on the Sunroof as well?

I've already had to close the screen because it was 34 in the middle if the day and it was a little warm even with aircon.

No good reason to use this on the sunroof when it is equipped with a blind and it is heavily tinted also IMO. There would be a cost penalty too I would think. Have to draw a line somewhere unless you want the most expensive i30N in the world. :cool::)

Sorry for the poor photo quality. This is my AUS spec screen on my car. Luxury pack includes "Solar Control Glass" I am guessing the logo on the bottom gives it away. Door glass is just tempered glass. No acoustic glass either.

The solar coated windshield absorbs the Sun's Infrared (IR) rays that cause excessive heat and brings down the interior temperature of the vehicle and increases cabin comfort. Auto glass specialists like Windshield experts in Noida, and other cities, always recommend solar control glass for your car windshield.

All windshields are made of laminated glass comprising of two glass sheets bonded together with a plastic interlayer. In a solar windshield this interlayer is replaced with a heat absorbing interlayer that prevents the transfer of heat. ... With a solar glass windshield, these concerns are taken care of automatically. forpc.onl jiofi.local.html
