New Window Glazing Launched by PPG and Saflex

Vehicle glazing has evolved from its original task of keeping bugs out of our teeth to the multi-functionality of Enhanced Technology Glass(ETG).

ETG, innovative glazing solution, is manufactured through a collaboration between PPG Industries and Saflex, a unit of Solutia Inc. and will be featured on General Motors 2008 full-size passenger vans.

"All 12- and 15-passenger vans have Enhanced Technology Glass to help protect passengers during a crash," said Steve Matsil, Vehicle Chief Engineer- GM Medium Duty Commercial Truck and Full-size Vans.

"This specialty glass is located in the rearmost side window positions next to the fourth- and fifth- row passengers. The glass is designed to help mitigate the risk of ejection for passengers seated next to the ETG windows."
