PITTSBURGH, US: PPG Industries has launched Solarban 90 glass, the first heat control, a low-emissivity (low-e) glass engineered with PPG’s proprietary “quad-silver” coating technology that can now be paired in insulating glass units (IGUs) with Starphire Ultra-Clear, Optiblue and Optigray glasses by PPG.

Solarban 90 glass combines the neutral reflectivity, neutral colour and high visible light transmittance (VLT) of clear glass with a robust solar control barrier. It blocks heat gain 15 percent more effectively than Solarban 70XL glass by PPG, which is the industry’s most widely specified triple-silver-coated solar control, low-e glass.

In a standard 1-inch IGU, Solarban 90 Optigray glass delivers a warm grey appearance with VLT of 36 percent and a solar-heat-gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.20. Solarban 90 Optiblue glass has a distinctive steel-blue grey aesthetic with VLT of 32 percent and an SHGC of 0.19. Solarban 90 Starphire Ultra-Clear glass offers brilliant clarity with VLT of 54 percent and an SHGC of 0.23.

“Solarban 90 glass was developed after months of sample review and consultation with architects. Our common goal was to satisfy demands for a high-performance low-e glass that could meet stricter building codes for solar control while achieving the neutral-reflective appearance of clear glass. The benefits associated with Solarban 90 glass can now be united with an expanded colour palette,” said Glenn Miner, PPG director of construction, flat glass.
