Introducing EnerLogic All-Season LOW-E Technology: An Energy-Efficiency Breakthrough from Solutia

Solutia Inc., (NYSE: SOA), the world’s leading producer of professional window films for automotive, residential and commercial markets, is excited to announce a groundbreaking new film product. The EnerLogic™, all-season Energy Control Window Film Series is the latest addition to the LLumar®  line-up of architectural window films. Featuring a patent-pending, low-e coating, EnerLogic™ window film adds up to 42%(1) more insulating power to existing commercial and residential windows – improving energy efficiency in every season. This technology is “always on”, 24/7, saving you money every day of the year.

Developed as part of Solutia’s ongoing commitment to energy efficiency, EnerLogic™ window film has insulating performance superior to any window film available. In summer, heat from the sun is reflected away from windows, easing the stress on air-conditioning. In winter, radiant heat from heating systems is directed back into the room, reducing energy use and improving comfort.

“A building is only as energy efficient as its windows,” Rainer Bechtold , Solutia Performance Films Division Director of Marketing –  EMEA , explains. “Traditional window films reflect heat out, providing substantial savings in summer, but adding relatively little value in winter. EnerLogic™ film helps keep the heat outside in summer and inside in winter, creating a perfect balance of energy efficiency, cost savings, and comfort.”

Outstanding Energy Efficiency – The patent-pending technology of EnerLogic™ window film will effectively upgrade the annual insulating performance of single pane glazing to close to double pane glazing and double pane glazing to close to triple pane glazing. The result is a significant increase in window efficiency at a fraction of window replacement cost.

Great Energy Savings – The use of EnerLogic™ window film could help to save over 10% on year-round energy costs!

Quick Payback – Windows typically account for 15% - 30% of a commercial building’s heating costs, and frequently more than 30% of cooling costs. EnerLogic™ window film is a low-cost, high-return technology that compares favorably to other popular energy-saving measures both in terms of energy efficiency and cost savings. In fact, EnerLogic™ outperforms most alternatives in terms of simple payback.

“At CPFilms we understand that the greenest energy is the energy that isn’t used,” said Ray Kollar, Solutia Performance Films Division President and General Manager. “This innovative new window film series offers excellent value by improving energy efficiency in every season, helping to reduce consumption and preserve natural resources. We are proud to be the first film company to introduce this revolutionary technology.”
