PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG) will introduce five blue glass tints at the 2009 American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention and Design Expo in San Francisco, April 30 through May 2.
Two new glass substrates will be included in this selection from PPG. Pacifica glass will be added to the Oceans of Color collection of ocean-inspired tinted glass, which now has Atlantica, Azuria, Caribia and Solexia glasses. Solarblue glass will join Solargray, Solarbronze, Optigray 23 and Graylite glasses in the company's collection of Earth and Sky Tones.
Three additional tints can be specified by adding Solarcool reflective coatings to Pacifica and Solarblue glasses, or by combining Pacifica glass with subtly-reflective, color-enriched Vistacool coating.
With the debut of these five new glass and coatings combinations, PPG will offer architects the industry's broadest palette of tints and performance options.
