Kit shows glass samples after prolonged exposure to heat and humidityPITTSBURGH, Dec. 15, 2011 – PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) has introduced a sample kit for shower glass retailers and kitchen and bath designers that demonstrates the superior clarity and durability of CLARVISTA(R) shower glass compared to conventional uncoated shower glass.

The kits show a single pane of shower glass after exposure to 1,000 continuous hours of 140 F temperatures and 95 percent relative humidity. The uncoated half of the shower glass displays extensive corrosion. The half made with Clarvista glass maintains its original clear appearance and shows no signs of corrosion.

Clarvista shower glass is made with a proprietary coating that seals the glass surface, making it more resistant to corrosion caused by heat, humidity, soap and chemicals in household cleaning products. Because of its durable coating, testing shows that, with regular maintenance, Clarvista glass looks newer longer than other shower glass products.

Clarvista glass is available with STARPHIRE(R) ultra-clear glass by PPG or conventional clear glass. When combined with Starphire glass, Clarvista glass produces a highly transparent shower glass, which makes it ideal for upscale homes, resorts and commercial spas.

The sample kits can be seen at Clarvista glass retailer and distributor locations. To find one near you, visit or call 1-888-PPG-GLAS (774-4527).
