PPG publishes edge-color guide for STARPHIRE glass

Four-page brochure highlights edge color of STARPHIRE ultra-clear glass

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 12, 2007 – PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) has published a new edge-color guide for Starphire glass that highlights the unique blue edge appearance of Starphire ultra-clear glass, the industry’s clearest and most transparent commercial glass.

Traditional clear glass displays a light green cast that gets darker as the glass gets thicker and longer. When Staphire glass is manufactured and cut in longer lengths, its superior clarity produces an attractive blue color that adds brilliance to the edges of glass doors, countertops, tabletops, room dividers, shower enclosures and other decorative elements.

The new brochure demonstrates the differences between Starphire glass and other clear glass products. A chart illustrates the different glasses’ edge-color appearances in thicknesses of 6, 12 and 19 millimeters and in lengths up to 130 feet.

To order a Starphire glass edge-color guide or to learn more about Starphire ultra-clear glass and its unique clarity, contact a local PPG glass dealer, visit www.ppgstarphire.com or call 1-888-PPG-IDEA.
