PPG Introduce Glass Specifically for Showers and Baths

PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) introduced 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.

Clarvista glass is made with a proven and reliable coating technology that seals the glass surface, making it resistant to corrosion caused by heat, humidity and household cleaning products. In scratch- and chemical-resistance tests, followed by 1,000 hours of exposure to accelerated heat and humidity tests in a corrosive environment, tempered Clarvista glass maintained its original appearance, outperforming tempered uncoated glass and tempered coated glass from a leading competitor.

Clarvista glass has several advantages for glass fabricators:

  • Because of its coating, Clarvista glass processes like regular glass. As a result, it is easier to handle and temper than other coated shower glass products, and it is no more susceptible to surface scratches than uncoated glass.
  • Clarvista glass does not require furnace modifications or additional equipment. PPG recommends that fabricators use standard furnace heat cycles appropriate to the glass thickness and substrate.
  • The coating on Clarvista glass is invisible and does not distract from the glass's aesthetic quality.

Clarvista glass is available on clear and Starphire(R) ultra-clear glass substrates and in thicknesses of 6 millimeters (¨ù-inch), 10 millimeters (¨ü-inch) and 12 millimeters (¨ö-inch). Stock sizes are 96 inches x 130 inches. To order consumer literature, labels or product samples, visit www.ppgclarvista.com or call 1-888-PPG-GLAS (774-4527) to find a local distributor.
