AGC Products Used in Offices

AGC Electronics produces a variety of components that form the smart devices powering today’s world.

Dragontrail™ is a light-weight, flexible, and scratch resistant glass with outstanding strength, used as a protective cover glass for electronic devices. Using its abundance of experience in glass processing technology, AGC produces IR Cut Filters and Aspherical Glass Lenses that improve the optical performance of devices such as digital cameras and projectors.

AGC Interior Glass products utilize environmentally friendly paint that preserves indoor air quality by emitting very low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and formaldehyde. The great range of colours and textures available also allows interior designers to explore different styles within the workspace.

AGC Products in Facades

Glass has played an integral part in realizing the vision of modern architecture. With a transparent quality belying its immense structural strength and incredible versatility, glass is an amazing material which makes possible a myriad of applications in the building and construction sector. More than being just a building envelope component, today it can generate energy and even communicate with people and machines. AGC offers a wide range of glass solutions that addresses the needs and necessities of designers and occupants by providing specific functions.

Thermal insulation & solar protection

Energy efficiency has been a key driver in the evolution of glass. AGC has created coatings that address the ever-increasing emphasis on solar protection while maintaining high visible light transmittance. Today, it is possible to realize energy efficient facades and green facades with AGC’s best in class coatings.

Health, Safety & Security

Safety glass guards against injuries and protects property against vandalism and break-ins. Laminated safety glass is made up of several sheets of glass separated by one or more layers of plastic film (PVB) so that if it breaks the pieces remain attached to the film. Depending on its composition, it affords protection against falling out of the window and even gunfire and explosions. Toughened glass, produced by heat treatment, is five times stronger than ordinary glass in terms of resistance to physical or thermal shock. Fire-resistant glass is made up of glass sheets separated by plastic layers that swell up when exposed to heat. Depending on its composition, it provides fire protection for 30 or even up to 120 minutes. Acoustic insulation glass, for its part, protects against outside noise, thus helping to preserve the peace and health of the occupants.


When transparent, clear or in subtle tints, glass designs space. Translucent, it expands space. Painted, it becomes opaque, separating spaces while spreading colour. Patterned, it sculpts the light. Mirrored, it reflects and expands space. Laminated and coloured, it combines aesthetics with security. Toughened and screen-printed, it personalises building interiors. Electroluminescent (with LEDs), it creates light and magic. Shaped and sculpted, it responds to the creativity of furniture designers.

Energy Generation

BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaic) glass has a dual role, forming part of the outer structure (glazing) of the building, while at the same time generating electricity. As such, it can replace structural elements (e.g. roofing) instead of being added on to them. BIPV glass in the form of laminated assemblies incorporates either photovoltaic cells or an ultra-thin organic film (opaque or semi-transparent), capable of generating electricity. The high-reflection, high-strength AGC mirror glass can be tailored to the needs of solar power stations.

Communication & Infotainment

Laminated glass, incorporating LEDs without visible wiring, comes alive at night, transforming building facades into coloured displays (logos or other designs) or giant screens with moving images. By day, it becomes transparent again.
For the high-tech sector, extra-thin glass (down to 0.3 mm) is ideally suited to electronic displays thanks to its surface quality and/or the extremely low iron content that is necessary for certain applications (giant touchscreens).
