Automation is the Game Changer for a New Generation of Heat Mirror IG

As the inventor and global leader in Heat Mirror suspended film technology, Southwall Technologies, now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eastman Chemical formed Southwall Insulating Glass with a mission to fully automate the manufacturing process and make Heat Mirror IG broadly available to the Residential and Commercial markets.

Mission accomplished!

We partnered with a leading European IG equipment manufacturer to tightly integrate the unique requirements for Heat Mirror IG production into a state-of-the-art, high-speed IG production line. Combining Southwall’s decades of Heat Mirror technology know-how, Eastman’s world class manufacturing expertise, and an automotive-industry focus on total quality, Southwall Insulating Glass is delivering a new generation of Heat Mirror IG with unmatched quality, performance and customer support.

Glass is often overlooked as a key topic in the green building conversation. We plan to change that.

Specifying generic "low-e" glass is no longer good enough, because providing R-3 insulating performance in a world in which R-19 insulated walls have become the norm has created a dramatic performance gap between what glass provides and what green building practices promise in saving energy and reducing carbon emissions.

With homes and buildings responsible for 39% of all carbon emissions in the US, energy conservation enabled through the broad market adoption of high-performance glass, such as multi-cavity HEAT MIRROR insulating glass, is one of the most effective tools we have to dramatically impact climate change in the near-term.

We take this responsibility seriously and are committed to delivering the world's highest performance glass products that save energy costs while helping to save the environment.
