To face the new challenges of the transport mutation, Saint-Gobain Sekurit Transport proposes a wide range of solutions to :
All our solutions are tailor-made for each market
In addition Saint-Gobain is constantly working on solutions in innovative fields such as information to driver and passenger (LED in Glass technology, integrated screen, Head-up display…)

Complex design with high optical properties
The trend in new vehicle is to have more innovative and attractive design to differentiate. Passengers prefer larger glass windows for a luminous atmosphere and drivers for security needs larger windshields for a maximum visibility. Design is not only for styling but improve also aerodynamic.
Saint-Gobain has developed a simulation tool enabling to define the best tools and bending parameters to reach highest optical quality ( no distortion , right chromaticity etc.).
In parallel, we continuously invest in new bending capability to be able to process more complex shape.
Saint-Gobain Sekurit Transport has several defrosting and demisting solutions:
Those systems enable a homogeneous heating on the entire glass surface and avoid the haze effect on glass.
Complete system including regulator with thermostat, or controller with sensor included directly in the laminate, are as well part of our supply scope.
Anti-reflection: SGS Reflexcontrol®
Saint-Gobain Sekurit transport proposes a unique solution of anti-reflection glass for added visibility. This solution is notably used for interior glass in transport.
For aircraft application DRY-COAT® is a highly hydrophobic film for glass that provides windshields with permanent rain-shedding properties to ensure a clear vision in all weather conditions. The chemical grafting of the film to the glass provides an abrasion resistance and a weatherability which are both good enough to permit DRY-COAT® to remain efficient for several months. At last, DRY-COAT® can be refurbished in-place
For industrial vehicle application, SGS AQUACONTROL®
Protection against projectile and blast / Anti-vandalism
Saint-Gobain Sully has developed a wide range of transparent compositions to protect drivers and passengers for all kind of threat: Bird impact for aeronautic and railway applications, concrete and metallic projectile impact for the railway applications, anti-vandalism, bullet and IED impact,… To know more about our specific products, visit our markets.
For trains, planes, security and armoured vehicles, our customers are looking for some solutions to protect the driver and the passengers. In addition to our strengthened composition, we have developed two solutions of anti-spall shielding (polycarbonate and FAENAC®). Both solutions are placed on the internal side of the glass, in order to avoid the projection of spalls into the cabin and protect the driver / passenger from projectiles.
Having those two solutions in our panel enables us to answer to all customer demand (durability, glass thickness, complex shape, abrasion…)
Glass and organic transparencies allow microwave energy to enter vehicles, in which flat metal surfaces reflect and become major sources of radar reflection back to the radar antenna. Making the transparencies reflective to radar beams considerably reduces the radar cross-section. Because of the glass installation angle, the incident microwaves are reflected to other directions. To get this shielding effect Saint-Gobain Sully proposes special in-house coating.
As the external surface of a windshield makes an electrically insulated section in an aircraft fuselage, a static electric charging can take place during flight. To prevent uncontrolled discharges causing flashovers and face ply damages, an excellent protection can be provided by a conductive coating, grounded for a continuous draining of the static charges. Fairly resistant to degradation by erosion, abrasion effects of windshield wipers, cleaning and weather, it has a negligible effect (practically less than 5%) in the light transmission of windshields.
Saint-Gobain, thanks to its unique knowledge in coating deposition, has developed a portfolio of in-house coating to protect passengers and equipment from harmful electro-magnetic wave and to keep the information inside the vehicle confidential.
This coating technology enables a significant increase of light transmission, improved optical properties, and a better performance at high frequency in comparison standard metallic grid / mesh.
Saint-Gobain has developed a range of A0 / A60 solutions to protect passengers from fire and smoke.
Thermal comfort is less CO2
Saint-Gobain Sekurit Transport benefits from the strong knowledge of its mother company Saint-Gobain, on glass properties and coatings.
Our solutions are designed based on the Saint-Gobain simulation tool Calumen®, which enables us to choose the best compromise between thermal and Light transmission for each customer’s application.
The heat entering the vehicle is mainly due to the sun’s energy (Visible & I-R) transmitted into the vehicle through the glass
For monitoring this energy transmission we have two solutions: absorbing or reflecting the visible and IR.
- Absorbing the visible and IR: with our range SGS THERMOCONTROL® VENUS, Venus® glass Tinted in the mass it is available in 2 tints: Venus® Grey and Venus® Green with diverse light and heat transmission, the selectivity: ratio between light transmission and heat transmission is the best of the market.
- Reflecting the infra-red range with our SGS THERMOCONTROL® Reflecting range coating or Interlayer which assure solar protection even at low speed.
According to market and glass position into the vehicle we have developed different solutions to reduce cold effect.
We have a range of Insulation products: double glazing or triple glazing available in different composition: thickness, colors.
We developed a new generation of 4 seasons glass which combines heat and cold control: SGS COMFORTSKY®.
This new product is available in monolithic or double-glazing and in different tints and thickness and assures the best thermal comfort while reducing weight.
Thanks to these added value glazing the air conditioning and heating systems use is decreased, so less consumption and CO2 while assuring better comfort
Sun protection : shaded band
For visibility comfort in sunny conditions, a special layer is embedded in the glass composition on the top side of the windshield to protect the driver from direct sun exposure.
Variable opacity / Electrochromic SageGlass®
This solution allows to efficiently control the transmitted solar radiation in both the visible and solar range in a dynamic way .
Like greenhouses, untreated transparency enclosures have the property to catch most of the energy from solar radiation, which causes the raise of the internal temperature. Typically an ACRYLOR® gold film developed by Saint-Gobain Sully can reflect 50% of the incident energy with a light transmission as high as 70%. ACRYLOR® is currently employed on Mirage 2000, Rafale, Super-Puma VIP, Grob Egrett and Bell 609 transparencies. A Silver based film SILVEX is also available for Helicopters acrylics or glass parts with a better compromise "Luminous Transmittance/ anti-solar performances
Saint-Gobain Sekurit Transport is using high performance materials developed by its sister company Sekurit for personal car application, to decrease noise without increasing the weight of the composition.
SGS DB CONTROL®, laminated glass with a specific noise reduction interlayer is one among other solution to help you to insulate your vehicle,
Several functionalities can be combined together for example: SGS DBCONTROL® and SGS ICECONTROL®, or THERMOCONTROL® & ICE CONTROL® ….
One of the major concerns in transport is the weight reduction as it has a strong impact on energy consumption and environmental impact. We constantly propose some new solution to reduce the weight by using thinner glass and/or optimizing its composition.
SGS TENNAFIT® is the best answer to the increasing number of antennas of our modern communication needs.
Printing the antennas on or embedding them into the glazing is SGS TENNAFIT® solution.
