Auburn Hills, Mich. (July 15, 2009) – Global glass manufacturer Guardian Industries continued to build its solar glass product portfolio by announcing EcoGuard Pattern Glass, a new low-iron pattern glass designed to maximize solar energy transmission and enhance photovoltaic module performance.

EcoGuard Pattern Glass can be used in a variety of applications, including photovoltaic energy systems, solar thermal collectors, greenhouses and other applications requiring high solar transmission and light control.

Guardian’s EcoGuard Pattern glass offers distinct advantages in manufacturing and performance due to the product’s pattern uniformity and solar transmission consistency. The glass also is IEC validated and tested and certified by the SPF Solartechnic Institute. Guardian is currently producing matte/matte and matte/prismatic pattern glasses. Guardian is conducting research to further increase solar transmission by optimizing the textured pattern. Look for new solar pattern glasses in the near future from Guardian.

“EcoGuard Pattern glass reflects the latest in Guardian’s solar glass technology backed by years of dedicated R&D,” said Scott Thomsen, CTO and VP of Guardian’s Science & Technology Center. “In addition to meeting the technical aspects of our sustainable energy initiatives, our solar products also are designed to optimize our customers’ investments.”

Guardian is a single source for annealed, heat strengthened, tempered and laminated glass with a variety of edge treatments.

A global manufacturer of high-quality glass for more than 75 years, Guardian has diverse product and technology pipelines that consistently translate into high-performance glass products for a wide range of industries. A stable, privately-held company with an international solar asset base, Guardian is well positioned to provide the solar market with superior solutions that address current and future market needs.
