PPG introduces SOLARBAN 67 glass for residential windows

PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) has introduced SOLARBAN(R) 67 solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) glass for the residential market.

Launched earlier this year for commercial building applications, Solarban 67 glass is formulated with a proprietary double-silver, magnetron-sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) coating that combines excellent solar control performance and a brilliantly clear neutral-glass appearance that reflects the true timbre and brightness of ambient light and color.  

Neutral coating provides excellent solar control, brilliantly clear exterior appearance

In a standard ¾-inch insulating glass unit (IGU) with clear glass and a ½-inch air space, Solarban 67 glass provides visible light transmittance (VLT) of 55 percent and a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.29. Solarban 67 glass also has exterior reflectance of 19 percent, which enhances its ability to reflect true-to-life color, and interior reflectance of 16 percent, which provides excellent outdoor views and a more comfortable living environment for homeowners. The winter nighttime U-value for Solarban 67 glass is 0.29.
