Engineered for exceptional clarity and solar control***PITTSBURGH, April 20, 2011 – PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) has introduced SOLARBAN(R) 72 STARPHIRE(R) glass, a solar control, low-emissivity glass designed to provide high visible light transmittance, exceptional clarity and superior solar control performance.***In a standard 1-inch insulating glass unit, Solarban 72 Starphire glass offers visible light transmittance (VLT) approximating that of Solarban 60 Starphire glass, yet it offers 25 percent better solar control.

Solarban 72 Starphire glass has solar control characteristics that are similar to those of Solarban 70XL glass, the industry’s first triple-silver-coated, solar control, low-e glass, but it transmits 11 percent more natural light.****

To maximize clarity, Solarban 72 Starphire glass insulating glass units feature one lite of uncoated Starphire glass and one lite with an advanced triple-silver coating that is engineered exclusively for use on a Starphire substrate. Made with a proprietary low-iron formulation, Starphire glass has been the industry’s most transparent architectural glass since it was introduced in 1990.****
