CASE STUDY

Malaysia is a tropical country, which means that the climate is that of a hot summer all-year-round until it rains. As such, high quality glass coating capable of shielding against UV and infrared light becomes indespensable, thus keeping heat out, becomes indispensable. It is even more so given that since use of air-conditioning is largely inevitable in such a climate, the use of coated glass with effective heat and UV light reduction also help save energy and is more environmental-friendly option than without. 

Below is a case study with KristalBond glass coating in a Malaysian climate setting. Read on to find out more. 

Temperature Difference Study:

Three temperature wireless data loggers are used to measure the temperature at different sections of Hotel B; Outside; Inside without KristalBond coating; Inside with KristalBond coating.

Outside

On a fair weather day in Malaysia, the average temperature outside Hotel B ranges from 36˚C -40˚C

Inside without KristalBond Coating

Inside Hotel B, with air-conditioning the temperature drops 6˚C but fluctuates between 32˚C -28 ˚C following the similar pattern of the temperature outside.

Inside with KristalBond Coating

With KristalBond coating, the temperature inside Hotel B is further reduced to a consistent 25˚C and remains stabilized (according to air-conditioning temperature setting).
