PPG to unveil CLARVISTA shower glass at 2010 GlassBuild America show
Will also showcase expanded portfolio of residential low-e glasses
PITTSBURGH, June 14, 2010 – PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) will showcase new Clarvista(TM) shower glass as well as an expanded portfolio of residential low-emissivity glasses at the 2010 GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo in Las Vegas, Sept. 14-16.
Clarvista glass is made with a coating technology that seals the glass surface, making it resistant to corrosion caused by heat, humidity and household cleaning products. With regular maintenance, Clarvista glass looks newer longer than other shower glass products. It is available on clear and Starphire(R) ultra-clear glass substrates and in thicknesses of 6 millimeters (¼ inch), 10 millimeters (⅜ inch) and 12 millimeters (½ inch). Stock sizes are 96 inches by 130 inches.
PPG will display its complete line of residential low-e glass products including Solarban(R) 70XL glass, the industry’s highest-performing solar control, low-e glass. Two new residential products, Solarban 65 and Sungate(R) 400 glasses, also will be exhibited, as well as Intercept(R) ULTRA insulating spacers.
Formulated as a value alternative to Solarban 70XL and Solarban 60 glasses, Solarban 65 glass is a double-silver, solar control, low-e glass. Sungate 400 glass is a passive low-e glass developed for window makers and homebuilders seeking to meet Canadian ENERGY STAR statutes. It is well-suited for use in northern U.S. climates as well.
The insulating performance of Solarban 65 and Sungate 400 glasses can be further enhanced in window systems that feature Intercept ULTRA Stainless “warm-edge” insulating spacers, which offer industry-leading thermal performance along with superior gas retention, strength and flexibility.
