Encapsulated Heat Reflecting Film
Even in cold weather, marine vehicles may overheat when exposed to direct sunlight. Excessive solar heat gain through clear or tinted glass results in occupant discomfort, excessive energy usage for cooling, and interior fading due to ultraviolet exposure.BCE's NanoKool® is a transparent film that is encapsulated between layers of PVB (polyvinyl butyral) in laminated glass to form a protective barrier against the harmful effects of the sun. Unlike other approaches that simply absorb and re-radiate heat, BCE NanoKool®'s spectrally-selective metallic coating actually reflects destructive infrared and UV rays without impairing visible light transmission.
BCE NanoKool® laminated glass reduces solar heat gain an average of 35% more effectively than tinted glass, increasing occupant comfort, improving fuel efficiency, and reducing interior fading.NanoKool® is virtually transparent, so it does not affect vision. NanoKool® also protects expensive upholstery and equipment by shielding it from over 94% of the sun's destructive heat and 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays.NanoKool® helps to lower interior temperatures quickly, cooling the passenger cabin to minimize strain on the air conditioner and improve fuel efficiency. Vehicles equipped with NanoKool® technology had significantly reduced interior cabin temperatures and improved fuel economy by 3%.
