Coated glass is defined as a glass which is covered with an outer layer, film, etc. having a coating of a mineral, especially China clay to provide a very smooth surface to the glass. Coatings on glasses are done to control the exposure of the glass surface to vapors, which bind to the glass forming a permanent coating. Additionally, coatings improves reflection, transmission & absorption properties and provides scratch & corrosive resistance. Coating is an integral part of glass manufacturing. Consequently, coated glass has experiences increasing demand from the entire automobile manufacturing processes. Coated glass is popular in commercial glazing as it provides superior solar control performance than clear or tinted glass products; therefore, it improves the energy efficiency of the building. The coated glass market is expanding significantly, owing to the rapid adoption of coated glass among different end-use applications.
