Aug. 22, 2008, Pittsburg – PPG Industries is introducing
its most popular tinted glasses with Solarban 70XL or Solarban 60 solar
control, low-emissivity coatings on the second surface of the glass.
The announcement coincides with the 125th anniversary of PPG Industries
and marks the latest development from a company that has been on the
forefront of glass innovation since its founding as the Pittsburgh
Plate Glass Co. in 1883.

All PPG tints from the Oceans of Color collection, including Atlantica,
Azuria, Caribia and Solexia glasses, as well as Solargray and
Solarbronze tinted glasses, are now offered with Solarban 70XL or
Solarban 60 solar control, lowe coating on the second surface of the
glass. In addition to providing improved environmental performance, the
availability of second-surface coated tints expands aesthetic options
for architects and and building owners.

The move also allows customers of PPG high-performance glass, members
of the PPG Certified Fabricator network, to offer architects and
building owners more products with superior energy performance.

For the 125 years, since it became the first commercially successful
glass company in the U.S., PPG has been an industry leader. The
company’s legacy of innovation results from the development of many
products and technologies that remain industry standards, such as:

  • 1934 – Solex (now Solexia) glass, the first heat-absorbing, energy-efficient glass
  • 1938 – Herculite glass, shatter-resistant tempered glass
  • 1945 – Twindow glass, the first double-paned insulating glass
  • 1962 – LHR (a Solarcool glass predecessor), the first heat-reflective glass
  • 1963 – First U.S. manufacturer to use the float glass process
  • 1983 – Sungate 100 glass, the world’s first low-e glass
  • 1989 – Azurlite (now Azuria) glass, the first spectrally-selective blue glass
  • 1990 – Starphire ultra-clear glass, still the clearest commercial float glass
  • 2000 – Solarban 60 double-silver-coated, solar control, low-e glass
  • 2001 – SunClean self-cleaning glass
  • 2005 – Solarban 70XL glass, the first triple-silver-coated solar control low-e glass
