Formulated as a value alternative to Solarban 70XL and Solarban 60 glasses, Solarban 65 is a double-silver, solar control, low-e glass that helps window makers achieve the “30/30” requirement for energy-efficient windows as defined in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Sungate 400 glass is a passive low-e glass developed for window makers and homebuilders seeking to meet Canadian ENERGY STAR statutes.It is ideal for use in northern U.S. climates as well.

At the show, PPG will display its complete line of residential low-e glass products including Solarban 70XL glass, the industry’s highest-performing solar control, low-e glass. Samples of proven industry standards such Solarban 60, Sungate 500 and Sungate 100 glasses also will be on hand.
