PPG 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 Program (CCWF).

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.
