ACUITY glass, a new SOLARBAN glass substrate to debut later this year, also will be previewed.

Vitro Architectural Glass will preview a new glass product and display seven large insulating glass units (IGUs), as well as a dramatic glass wall featuring an array of tinted, etched and painted glasses in a 600-square foot exhibit at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Conference on Architecture 2018 in New York, June 21-23.

Show attendees will be among the first to hear about Acuity™ glass, a new affordable, low-iron glass designed to enhance aesthetics and clarity for vision and spandrel glass applications. To be released September of 2018, Acuity glass is designed to be a highly transparent substrate for Vitro Glass’ full-range of Solarban® high-performance solar control low-e glass coatings.

Vitro Glass will also exhibit seven large IGUs showing Solarban® 90 solar control low-emissivity (low-e) glass coated on clear and Starphire Ultra-Clear® glass substrates.

The industry’s first quad-silver-coated low-e glass, Solarban 90 glass unites robust solar control with excellent visible light transmittance to meet architect demands for greater transparency and improved energy-saving performance.

Other glass units will showcase Solarban 70XL on clear glass, Solarban 70XL on Optigray® glass, and Solarban z75, Solarban 67 and Solarban R100® solar control low-e glasses.

Another feature of the display will be a 90-square foot glass wall comprised by performance-tinted glasses by Vitro Glass; patterned low-e Walker Textures® AviProTek® E bird-safe glass, and decorative and spandrel glasses back-painted in a range of colors and metallic finishes withOPACI-COAT 300® by ICD High Performance Coatings.

The booth will be staffed by technical experts from Vitro Glass who can provide details about the company’s seventh and newest magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) coater, which will begin production at its Wichita Falls, Texas plant in July.

The new coater will enable Vitro Glass to manufacture energy-efficient, high-performance low-e glasses in sizes up to 130 by 204 inches. When it begins operation, the Vitro Glass coater will be the largest of its kind in North America.
