Research of environment-friendly low emissivity glass


The environment-friendly glasses which integrate function and structure were introduced, among these glasses can save energy very efficiently due to its low infrared emissivity. The fundamental principle of the low emissivity glass and the research progress of this kind glass were analyzed. Meanwhile, high performance and low applied development trend of emissivity glass were reviewed.
