The Differences between AG Glass and AR Glass

(Anti-Glare Glass and Anti-Reflective Glass)

Many people cannot distinguish between AG glass and AR glass, and cannot distinguish how functional AG glass and AR glass are. Today we will compare the differences between AG glass and AR glass from four aspects.

Differences Between AG Glass and AR Glass

Function Differences Between AG Glass and AR Glass

AG glass, also known as anti glare glass, is used to “reduce strong light reflection or direct light”.

AR glass (abbreviated as anti reflection glass), also known as anti reflection glass, is used to “reduce reflection and increase transmission”.

Therefore, in terms of optical parameters, AR glass has more functions to increase light transmittance than AG glass.

Principle Differences Between AG Glass and AR Glass

AG glass principle: After roughening the glass surface, the reflective surface (flat mirror surface) of the glass becomes a non reflective matte surface (uneven rough surface). Compared with ordinary glass, it has a lower reflectance, reducing the reflectivity of light from 8% to less than 1%, creating a clear and transparent visual effect through technology, allowing viewers to experience better sensory vision.


AR glass principle, uses the most advanced magnetron sputtering coating technology in the world to coat an antireflection film on the surface of ordinary Tempered glass, which effectively reduces the reflection of the glass itself, increases the transmissivity of the glass, and makes the original color of the glass through more bright and real.



Usage Environments Differences Between AG Glass and AR Glass

AG glass usage:

1. Strong light environment. If there is strong or direct light in the product’s use environment, such as outdoors, it is recommended to use AG glass, as AG processing makes the reflective surface of the glass become a matte diffuse reflective surface, which can blur the reflective effect, prevent glare, and reduce reflection and shadow.

2. In harsh environments, such as hospitals, food processing, exposure to sunlight, chemical plants, military industries, navigation, and other fields, it is required that the glass cover plate must not have surface detachment.

3. Exposure to touch environments, such as plasma TVs, PTV rear projection TVs, DLP TV splicing walls, touch screens, TV splicing walls, flat screen TVs, rear projection TVs, LCD industrial instruments, mobile phones, and advanced picture frames.


AR glass usage environment:


High definition display environment, such as product usage requirements for high clarity, rich color, clear hierarchy, and eye-catching; For example, when watching TV, if you want to watch high-definition 4K, the picture quality should be clear, the colors should be dynamic, and the color loss or color difference should be reduced, Places that can be reached by the eye include exhibition cabinets and displays in museums, telescopes, digital cameras, medical equipment in the field of Optical instrument, image processing, optical imaging, sensors, analog and digital video screen technology, computer technology, etc., as well as exhibition glass, watches, etc.
