PRLog - Jan. 17, 2014 - Nitto is expanding its portfolio of energy saving products by introducing PENJEREX®, a transparent window insulation film to the U.S. market. The housing industry is increasingly faced with greater demand for enhanced energy efficiency and CO2 reduction, being represented by such concepts as the "100-year home" and the "smart house". In response to these increasing demands, Nitto has developed PENJEREX® to provide year round energy savings without sacrificing natural light.
As a sophisticated high transparency window insulation film, PENJEREX® allows owners to benefit from insulation properties while maintaining the natural look of the home. PENJEREX® allows up to 78% of natural light into the home while blocking over 99% of the harmful UV rays that fade furnishings.
One of the major factors in a home's cooling requirements is solar heat gain through windows. In the summer, PENJEREX® reflects solar heat by 50%, increasing the efficiency of air conditioners, and reducing energy costs.
Another cause of energy loss is heat transfer through windows. In the winter, PENJEREX® improves insulation by reducing heat transfer by 35%. Insulation tests have shown that with PENJEREX®, a single pane window performs as well as a double pane window.
This product is ideal for windows of office buildings, schools and commercial buildings and can easily be applied to existing windows.
