We often receive questions regarding plant sensitivity to Ultraviolet Light

All of our MC Low-E glazings reduce damaging U.V. light. Reducing U.V. is important for growing plants & protecting tender seedlings. Fact: No ultraviolet light requirements have been documented for plant growth according to Denver Botanical Garden's Horticultural Department and published reference materials. Using MC Low-E gives plants a tremendous advantage since it will greatly reduce the amount of cold & warm spots in the area increasing plant growth & room comfort. We also offer commercial grower's polycarbonate (which naturally blocks almost 100% of U.V.) However, this will yellow in about 5-10 years, is not aesthetically pleasing, and doesn't give the performance of the MC Low-E.


The coating’s hydrophilic property makes water droplets spread out, or sheet, across the surface of the glass. Because of this, when rain or a light spray of water hits the window, the water helps to more effectively rinse away loosened dirt. This sheeting action, which works throughout the day and night, helps the window dry quickly with minimal spotting and streaking.


In a photocatalytic process, ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun energizes the SunClean glass coating to help slowly break down and loosen organic dirt. Since UV light is abundant even on cloudy days or in shaded areas, this process works non-stop throughout the day.
