LIQUID PRODUCTS

-TECNANs’ competitors have to be applied pouring the product over the glass (“cascade”), thus making very difficult to coat large surfaces; whereas Tecnadis HEATSHIELD product can be easily applied by a normal pressure air gun, being able to cover very large areas or by cleaning tools such as articulated sponge or cloth among others.

-Thanks to the simple application of Tecnadis HEATSHIELD we can apply one or several layers, therefore being able to graduate the solar energy blocking.

-Higher protection.

-Highly resistance to cleaning products.

-To achieve a similar solar energy blocking, a glass treated with Tecnadis HEATSHIELD and one not treated are basically indistinguishable, whereas with other products the glass goes dark.

-Tecnadis HEATSHIELD is  totally resistant to UV radiation.

Tecnadis HEATSHIELD is cheaper than its competitors, being affordable for our consumers, whereas other liquid products are extremely higher.

PLASTIC FILMS

The plastic films paste to the glass by an adhesive that limits hugely grip capacity.

-The films crack and turn yelow because they are plastics, whereas Tecnadis HEATSHIELD is totally resistant to UV radiation.

The films block largely visible radiation; on the contrary, Tecnadis HEATSHIELD, in this sense, does not affect the glass (Visible transmission of 90% approx.).

-If aesthetic maintains, the films protect lower than Tecnadis HEATSHIELD.

-Competitive films have difficult and hard application whereas Tecnadis HEATSHIELD is applied easily with air-gun.

Higher prices in comparison with Tecnadis HEATSHIELD.

-At the end-of-life, films involve the generation of a residue that must be managed.
