New PPG brochure highlights Certified Fabricator Program

PITTSBURGH, July 26, 2007 – PPG Industries’ (NYSE: PPG) performance glazings business has published a new brochure highlighting the Certified Fabricator Program (PPG/CFP) – an elite group of glass fabricators certified by PPG to provide a full range of high-performance PPG glass products, including Solarban 70XL, Solarban z50 and Solarban 60 glasses.

The brochure includes a map of PPG/CFP member locations as well as contact information for each. It also details the benefits PPG/CFP members offer to their customers, such as priority access to select high-performance PPG glass products, as well as accelerated lead times, in-stock replacement glass and regional sourcing.

The brochure also includes information about additional Certified Fabricator Program groups for glass products ranging from commercial windows to laminated glass. The new derivations of the PPG/CFP program are as follows:


  • The Certified Commercial Window Fabricator (PPG/CCWF) Program offers architects and building owners the benefits of high-performance PPG glass in a manufactured window.
  • The Certified Laminator Program (PPG/CLP) includes a select group of glass laminating partners supplying laminated, solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) glass for overhead skylights, safety and security glazing applications.
  • The International Certified Fabricator Program (PPG/ICFP) upholds the standards of the North American Certified Fabricator Program on a global scale.
  • The International Certified Laminator Program (PPG/ICLP) supplies laminated, solar control, low-e glass for overhead skylights, safety and security glazing applications in several other countries.


The fun and inviting design of this new literature recreates a 1960s-style roadmap, complete with roadside attractions such as the world’s largest stump, hamburger and ball(s) of twine (there are more than one).
