Glossary of terms

U-Value (winter)

The ability for heat to transfer through 1 square foot of window film for each 1F difference in temperature. It is dependent upon the local climate or environment that the window is located in effects the level of heat transfer and the rate; in winter, heat transfers from the indoor air to outdoor air. The lower the U-Value, the better insulating qualities of the window film/glass system.

Shading Coefficient

The ratio of the solar heat gain through a given glazing system to the solar heat gain under the same conditions for clear, non-shaded, double strength window glass. Shading coefficient defines the sun control capability of the glazing system. The lower the number, the better solar shading qualities of the window film/glass system.

Ultra-Violet (UV) Transmittance

The ratio of the amount of total UV solar energy (300-380 nanometers) that is allowed to pass through a glazing system to the amount of total UV solar energy falling on the glazing system. Ultra- violet is one portion of the total solar energy spectrum, which greatly contributes to fading and deterioration of fabric and furnishings. The lower the number, the less ultraviolet transmitted.

Total Solar Energy Rejected

The percentage of total solar energy (heat) rejected by the window film/glass system. The higher the number, more total solar energy (heat) rejected. It is the combined effect of all heat transmitted, absorbed or reflected and therefore the most reliable benchmark.

Total Solar Transmittance

The ratio of the amount of total solar energy in the full solar wavelength range (300-2100 nanometers) that is allowed to pass through a glazing system to the amount of total solar energy falling on that glazing system. The lower the number, less the solar radiation transmitted.

Total Solar Absorbance

The ratio of the amount of total solar energy absorbed by a glazing system to the amount of total solar energy falling on the glazing system. Solar absorption is that portion of total solar energy neither transmitted nor reflected. Since solar transmittance and solar reflectance are measured directly, the following equation should be used in calculating solar absorbance: Solar absorbance = 1.00 (solar transmittance) - (solar reflectance). The lower the number, less the radiation absorbed.

Total Solar Reflectance

The ratio of total solar energy, which is reflected outward by the glazing system to the total amount of total solar energy falling on that glazing system. On filmed windows this reflectance is a function of the side of the film facing the window surface. The lower the number less the solar radiation reflected.

Visible Light Transmittance (VLT)

The ratio of the amount of total visible solar energy (380-780 nanometers) that is allowed to pass through a glazing system to the amount of total visible solar energy falling in the glazing system. The VLT is different for window and automotive films depending upon the degree of tint, type of film whether metalized, dyed or spectral selective. While VLT normally varies between 5% and 90%, most films are between 20% and 70% depending upon Road Transport regulations of the city or country. The higher the VLT the more light is transmitted. A high VLT is desirable to maximize daylight into homes and offices. In addition windscreen films should have high VLT to maintain good visibility during night and bad weather. Glare is also influenced by visible light transmittance through a glazing system. The lower the number, less the visible solar light transmitted.

Visible Light Reflectance (Exterior)

The percent of total visible light that is reflected by the window film/glass system. The lower the number, less the visible light reflected.
