Sun-X MT20 is a dark neutral ultraviolet glazing filter that has been applied extensively to both internal and external glazing in many of the major museums and art galleries throughout the UK and abroad.
While it is accepted that exhibits are best displayed in natural daylight, the potential for fading and surface degradation provides enormous problems for conservationists.
Consultations with conservation scientists to determined that the ideal answer would be a multipurpose window film which would eliminate ultraviolet radiation and reduce lux levels by 80% without significantly altering the quality of the transmitted light.
Sun-X MT20 meets these criteria. The addition of an external weatherable coating extends life when applied externally and its 100 micron thickness provides an additional breaksafe safety feature.
• Reduces lux levels by 80%.
• Virtually eliminates UV radiation.
• Provides glass safety to BS 6206 Class B.
• Reduce solar heat gain by 64%.
