A coated glass article includes a glass substrate and a pyrolytic coating deposited over the glass substrate. The coating includes a first inorganic metal oxide layer deposited over a major surface of the glass substrate. The first inorganic metal oxide layer includes titanium dioxide or tin oxide, has a refractive index of 1.8 or more, and is deposited at a thickness of 40 nm or less. A second inorganic metal oxide layer is deposited directly on the first inorganic metal oxide layer. The second inorganic metal oxide layer includes silicon dioxide and has a refractive index of 1.6 or less. A third inorganic metal oxide layer is deposited directly on the major surface of the glass substrate. The third inorganic metal oxide layer comprises silicon dioxide. The first inorganic metal oxide layer is deposited directly on the third inorganic metal oxide layer. The coated glass article exhibits a total visible light reflectance of 6.5% or less.

Methods are disclosed for planarisation of a coated glass substrate by deposition of a silazane based layer thereon. Coated substrates according to the invention exhibit improved properties in terms of reduced roughness, lower haze and higher visible light transmission and the coated surface may be exposed to the external environment, for example as surface 1 or surface 4 of a double glazing unit. The resulting smooth surface is less susceptible to marking and scratch damage, and offers enhanced surface energy (improved hydrophobicity).

Solar collector apparatus is described in which solar radiation is collected in a glazed cavity which may also include a transpired solar collector layer. Air warmed in the cavity may be used for space heating within buildings or diverted to heat management systems which facilitate, for example, heat storage. The glazing, particularly coated glazings, improve the performance of the devices by allowing solar energy to enter the cavity and preventing heat loss, and by negating the effect of ambient wind on the transpired solar collector layer.

A coated glass article includes a coating formed over a glass substrate. The coating comprises an optional base layer of an oxide of silicon, a first coating layer of an oxide of titanium, niobium or chromium, a second coating layer of an oxide of silicon, and a third coating layer of an oxide of tin. The coated glass article exhibits a Tvis of 40%-55% and an Rf of 40%-60%. A video display can be mounted behind the coated glass article, such that when the video display is in operation it is visible through the coated glass article and when the video display is not in operation is it concealed by the coated glass article.


A CVD process for depositing a silica coating is provided. The process includes providing a float glass ribbon in a float glass manufacturing process. The process also includes forming a gaseous mixture including a silane compound, oxygen, a fluorine-containing compound, and a radical scavenger. The gaseous mixture is directed toward and along the float glass ribbon and is reacted over the float glass ribbon to form the silica coating thereon. The silica coating comprises silicon dioxide.

A vehicle glazing (2, 202, 302) onto which a decorative trim (16, 216, 316) may be mounted, the vehicle glazing comprising a pane of glazing material (4, 204, 304) having a glazing profile (6, 206, 306) provided around at least a portion of the periphery of the pane. A profile insert (14, 214, 314) is embedded in the glazing profile and forms a means of attachment for the trim, wherein the profile insert comprises a trim-retaining portion (17, 217, 317) which protrudes from the glazing profile. The trim-retaining portion may comprise an aperture (15, 215, 315) for receiving a projection (28, 228, 328) on the trim. The glazing profile may be formed by edge encapsulation of the pane of glazing material, the profile insert (14, 214, 314) being incorporated into the encapsulation at the same time.
