Booklet highlights sustainability, new products, performance dataPPG Industries’ (NYSE: PPG) performance glazings business has published a new architectural glass catalog.

The 36-page booklet contains detailed product descriptions for PPG’s entire glass product line, including new products such as SOLARBAN(R) R100 solar control, low-emissivity glass and blue-tinted PACIFICA(R) and SOLARBLUE(R) glasses.

The catalog is designed to complement the PPG architectural glass binder, which is now published online exclusively. Glenn T. Miner, PPG architectural market manager, performance glazings, said the purpose of the catalog and the online binder is to reduce the amount of printed material PPG generates and the resulting distribution-related greenhouse gas emissions.

“Architects are focused on sustainability, and they are demanding a similar commitment from their suppliers, not just from the products we make but in the way we do business,” Miner said. “By expanding our catalog and posting our binder online, we are providing the critical information architects need to maximize building performance while reducing our own carbon footprint.”

In addition to providing detailed product descriptions, the catalog illustrates how architectural glass can reduce energy consumption in commercial buildings by blocking solar heat and transmitting daylight. There also is performance data, including U-values, solar heat-gain coefficients (SHGC) and light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratios for more than 200 combinations of monolithic and insulating glass.

PPG is the only glass company in the world to have its entire collection of architectural glass Cradle to Cradle-certified. For more information, or to order a copy of the PPG architectural glass catalog, visit www.ppgideascapes.com/glasscatalog or call 1-888-PPG-IDEA (774-4332).
