Iriotec® 9000 - Let there be light and keep it cool
Beat the heat and bring light in
Iriotec® 9000 products contain tiny particles with a useful ability to reflect near-infrared light. This is a highly effective way to ward off the direct heat created by sunlight. But the shading effect it delivers is selective – so although it helps keep the heat away, light is still allowed to penetrate. As a result, our Iriotec® 9000 products are ideal for greenhouses and similar glass-covered areas. They are popular among architects and construction planners as a means of combating heat while maintaining illumination levels in buildings.
- Provides shade without blocking out all the light
- Reduces heat by filtering solar energy
- Creates a pleasant atmosphere and lighting conditions
Ideal applications for using Iriotec® 9000
- Horticulture (e.g. greenhouses and conservatories)
- Construction (e.g. winter gardens in public buildings, covered walkways)
Iriotec® 9000 pigments contain layers of mica which have been optimized to allow just the right amount of light to get through. The tiny sheets of silicate minerals in Iriotec® 9000 pigments make it possible to reflect the main source of atmospheric heat: invisible sunlight radiation. Despite this, they have an amazing ability to allow through most visible light. Depending on the individual application and the specific type of area or setup, temperatures can be up to 15˚C cooler than with non-pigmented glazing systems.
The pigments in the Iriotec® 9000 range have a special coating to make them weather-resistant. This also makes our products suitable for a variety of high-performance exterior applications as well as areas requiring a high resistance to humidity, UV light, or both.
