New ultra-neutral, light-gray OPTIGRAY glass
Delivers a warm, neutral aesthetic for low-e and uncoated glass

The newest addition to PPG’s collection of neutral tinted glasses, Optigray® glass is designed to maximize light transmittance and color neutrality, and, when coated with Solarban solar control, low-e glass, to deliver advanced solar performance.

Note: Opacified to intensify color for comparison.


Formulated with a subtle, light-gray tint, Optigray glass eliminates the green color typically found in conventional clear glass formulations, producing a warm, ultra-neutral aesthetic that brings crispness to vision glazing.

When it comes to balancing light transmittance and solar control, Optigray glass can perform as well as it looks. It is specially formulated to function as a substrate with solar control, low-e coatings such as those on Solarban® 70XL, Solarban 67, Solarban 60 and Solarban R100 glasses to produce Light to Solar Gain (LSG) ratios of up to 1.96. See the table below for detailed performance data.
