Low-Emissivity Glass

Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG) announced that SOLARBAN 90 solar control, low-emissivity (Low-e) glass is now available on a wide array of performance-tinted glasses, including Atlantica, Azuria, Pacifica, Solarblue, Solarbronze, Solargray and Solexia. SOLARBAN 90 glass uses proprietary coating technology to deliver robust solar control and high visible light transmittance (VLT) on clear glass, while providing the color neutrality needed to harmonize with a wide range of performance-tinted glasses. In a standard 1-inch insulating glass unit (IGU) with clear glass, SOLARBAN 90 glass has a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.23, which is a 15 percent improvement over SOLARBAN 70XL glass, the industry’s most widely specified triple silver coated solar control, low-e glass.
