Coatings play an important role in our everyday life, although often not recognized by those who do not master the art. Coatings are a big market and many products fall under this category. Kriya Materials focuses itself on the development and manufacturing of various nano metal oxides which it uses internally for the development and production of very high end coatings.
The coatings made by Kriya Materials are applied in a wide range of markets, some examples are the Plasma Panel and LCD industry, from Smartphone to touch panels to glass surfaces.
An example of what our functional coating products do?
Green is hot, and reducing carbon footprint is on everybody's mind. To this end, Kriya Materials has successfully developed a functional coating product for energy saving window films and PVB interlayers.
The product range is based on doped metaloxide nanoparticles that filter the near infrared part of the solar radiation and thus lowering the SHGC (see below). Applied on a laminate, our functional coating effectively reduce the solar heating of rooms or cars, and thus lowering the CO2 footprint as your airco unit will be used less in the end, which saves fuel or electricity. Those who are knowledgeable in the window film market know that reflection and high transparency are an aesthetic and often legal feature unmet by metal sputtered films, this is exactly where Kriya Materials products give the best total performance.
The SHGC is the fraction of incident solar radiation admitted through a window, both directly transmitted and absorbed and subsequently released inward. SHGC is expressed as a number between 0 and 1. The lower a window's solar heat gain coefficient, the less solar heat it transmits.
