PPG to preview SOLARBAN 67 glass at GREENBUILD Expo

New SUNGATE 600 glass also to be highlightedPITTSBURGH, Oct. 10, 2012 – PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG) will preview SOLARBAN(R) 67 glass and showcase new SUNGATE(R) 600 glass during the GREENBUILD(R) International Conference and Expo in booth 1827S at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, Nov. 14-15.

Solarban 67 glass, to be released later this year, is expected to set a new standard for neutral transmitted color and solar control performance in double-silver-coated, solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) glasses. With visible light transmittance (VLT) of 54 percent in a clear 1-inch insulating glass unit (IGU), Solarban 67 glass has a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.29 that is nearly equal to that of triple-silver-coated Solarban 70XL glass and superior to that of double-silver-coated Solarban 60 glass. Solarban 67 glass has a light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio of 1.89, which is higher than any double-silver-coated architectural glass.

Sungate 600 glass, introduced in August, is a multifunctional low-e glass engineered to enhance the insulating performance of buildings in various climates. In moderate climates where solar heat gain is desired, Sungate 600 glass can function as a high-performance passive, low-e glass on the No. 3 surface of a 1-inch IGU. For colder climates demanding high insulating values, Sungate 600 glass on the No. 4 surface of a 1-inch IGU with Solarban 60 glass on the No. 2 surface can increase U-value for the IGU by up to 20 percent.

PPG also will display Solarban 70XL and Solarban R100 glasses. Solarban 70XL glass has VLT of 64 percent and a SHGC of 0.27 in a clear 1-inch IGU, yielding an LSG ratio of 2.37. Solarban R100 glass is a neutral-reflective, solar control, low-e glass with an LSG ratio of 1.79 that is up to 29 better than LSG ratios for competing neutral-reflective, solar control, low-e glasses.

Visitors to the PPG booth at Greenbuild can examine samples of Solarban 72 STARPHIRE(R), Solarban z50 and Solarban 60 glasses, as well as Sungate 500, Starphire ultra-clear and CLARVISTA(R) shower door glasses. To learn more, visit www.ppgideascapes.com or call 1-888-PPG-IDEA (774-4332).
