Glass Partitions & Other Interior Applications
When it comes to adding color to a room or building, you naturally think of paint first and then things like fabric, furniture, artwork and lighting. At PPG, we want you to think of glass, too. Just like paint, glass offers a virtually unlimited number of interior design and decorating possibilities.
Recently, PPG teamed with a select group of alliance partners to provide you with a one-stop resource for all your glass-related interior design products and ideas.
PPG Clear, Ultra-Clear and Tinted Glasses
From clear and ultra-clear glass to a full range of tints inspired by the earth, sea and sky, PPG offers a complete collection of transparent and tinted glasses for any interior application:
- Starphire® Ultra-Clear Glass
Made with a proprietary low-iron formulation, Starphire ultra-clear glass by PPG is the industry's clearest, most transparent glass. Unlike conventional clear glass, which gets darker and greener as it becomes thicker or is laminated into multiple layers, the clarity of Starphire glass actually intensifies, creating a distinctive "blue-edge" look that is ideal for partitions, doors, countertops, table tops and other interior applications. Because of its unparalleled clarity, Starphire glass also offers exceptional color fidelity when coupled with painted, vinyl or elastomeric color interlayers.
- Oceans of Color Tinted Glass
From the emerald green of Atlantica™ glass to the dark-blue depths of Pacifica™ glass, PPG offers a collection of nautically inspired tints that bring vibrancy and color to any indoor environment. You also can choose from aqua-blue Azuria™ and subtle green Solexia™ glasses.
- Earth and Sky Tinted Glass
To complement its Oceans of Color® collection, PPG offers a variety of nature-inspired tints, encompassing sky-blue Solarblue™, and warm-bronze Solarbronze® glasses. Cool-gray Solargray®, and light blue-gray Optiblue® glasses expand the array of appearance choices.
All PPG clear and tinted glasses can be tempered for added strength and safety, and specified in thicknesses of up to one inch for Starphire glass, ½-inch for Earth & Sky tints and ¼-inch for Oceans of Color glasses.
