Celebrating 125 years of innovation PPG introduces glass tints with second-surface MSVD low-E coatings As PPG Industries celebrates its 125th anniversary, the company continues to expand its product line by introducing Solarban 70XL and Solarban 60 solar control, tinted glass with low-emissivity coatings on the second surface.
Sept. 25, 2008 - PPG introduces glass tints with second-surface MSVD low-E coatings.
Atriums with sloped glazing allow light into large floor plates. The widespread implementation of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accreditation for such designs is prompting architects and designers to include vertical glazing and sloped glazing systems into their building designs.
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.
Low-E glass has evolved considerably since its inception spawning new variations of itself in high performance and reflective glass. After flattening out in the late 1990s, the rejuvenation of low-E glass in commercial glazing projects has been evident in several high profile buildings in both Canada and the US.
Editor’s Note: A Canadian company is making advances in new coating technology. Prelco, located in Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec, has installed a Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) chamber used to apply a newly licensed nano-technology coating called Nano-Fusion. The licensed CVD chamber built by the company is the first of its kind in Canada and is able to apply coatings to monolithic glass and IG units up to 96 by 196 inches (2438mm by 4978mm) in size. Prelco is a pioneer in this new technology and Glass Canada magazine has been following this company’s efforts to educate the industry about a new wave of nano-fusion products for glass applications. -end-
