PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) will showcase four new products at GlassBuild America 2010: The Glass, Window & Door Expo in Las Vegas, Sept. 14-16, including:
- SOLARBAN(R) R100 glass, a transparent-reflective, solar control, low-emissivity glass with a proprietary hybrid coating technology, visible light transmittance (VLT) of 42 percent and a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.23, as well as a 1.79 light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio - as much as 29 percent greater than that of competing transparent-reflective, solar control, low-e glasses.
- SUNGATE(R) 400 glass, a passive low-emissivity glass with a magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) "soft coat" that helps commercial buildings in heating-dominated climates retain heat from the sun and reduce winter heating costs.
- CLARVISTA(TM) shower glass, an innovative glass for shower doors and bath and shower enclosures that, with regular maintenance, looks newer longer than other shower glass products.
- A new insulating glass technology that helps dual-pane residential insulating glass units (IGUs) achieve R-5 insulating performance. The dual-coat technology incorporates one pane of 3-millimeter Solarban 70XL glass on the second (#2) surface of the IGU and one 3-millimeter pane of Sungate 500 glass on the fourth (#4) surface, separated by a ½-inch of argon-filled space. The configuration generates a winter nighttime U-value of 0.20, providing insulating performance that is better than or equal to any competing dual-pane IGU on the market.
