PPG introduces CLARVISTA shower glass sample kit

Shows coating on clear, ultra-clear glasses

PITTSBURGH, June 16, 2010 – PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG) has introduced a sample kit for Clarvista(TM) glass for shower doors and bath and shower enclosures. The box includes two 10 millimeter (⅜ inch)-thick samples of Clarvista glass: one on clear glass substrate and one on Starphire(R) ultra-clear glass substrate.

Clarvista glass is made with a coating that seals the glass surface, enabling it to resist corrosion caused by heat, humidity and household cleaning products. With regular maintenance, Clarvista glass looks newer longer than other shower glass products.

In addition to 10 millimeters (⅜ inch), Clarvista glass also is available in thicknesses of 6 millimeters (¼ inch) and 12 millimeters (½ inch). Stock sizes are 96 inches by 130 inches.
