Solarban® 70XL Glass Now Available Through PPG Certified Glass
and Window Fabricator Networks
PPG Industries of Pittsburgh has announced that Solarban® 70XL glass, the
company's latest solar control low-E glass, is now available as
a standard inventory item exclusively through the company's Certified
Fabricator Program (CFP) and Certified Commercial Window Fabricators
According to the company, Solarban 70XL offers an unprecedented
combination of solar control and visible light transmittance with
a transparent, color-neutral appearance.
Additionally, the company says that when combined with clear glass
in a standard one-inch insulating glass unit, Solarban 70XL has
a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of 0.27 with a Visible Light
Transmittance (VLT) of 61%. That equates to a Light to Solar Gain
(LSG) ratio of 2.33, which surpasses by far the performance of any
other Solar Control Low-E glass on the market.
Solarban 70XL glass is said to cut annual cooling costs buildings
by 3-5 percent, producing projected savings of up to $400,000 over
a 20-year span.
Solarban 70XL glass can be combined, in an insulating glass unit,
with tinted glass from the PPG Oceans of Color collection
of spectrally selective tinted glasses.
