Solar Shield Technology (SST) - To protect against heat and sunlight
Solar Shield Technology (SST) from RENOLIT provides protection against excessive heat build-up in the profile. This helps ensure profiles retain their dimensional stability even when exposed to strong sunlight, allowing windows to retain their tight fit and preserve their energy efficiency.
Solar Shield Technology (SST) acts as a protective shield for the entire profile. The Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) surface layer is transparent to infrared radiation, allowing pigments in the coloured base films to reflect these wavelengths.
This protects not only the film itself but also the adhesive and profile.The continually improving thermal insulation of windows reduces heat transmission. As the temperature gradient between the interior and the exterior increases this imposes greater stress on the profile.
Solar Shield Technology (SST) reduces the temperature on the outside which reduces the risk of profile warping.
As the vast majority of infrared radiation never reaches the profile, SST benefits both white and dark profiles.
Solar Shield Technology (SST) has proven performance in the most severe climate conditions. RENOLIT are continuously improving the performance of SST, which is now utilised with our RENOLIT EXOFOL product family.
