PITTSBURGH, Oct. 9, 2012 – PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) announced that CLARVISTA(R) glass, a highly transparent and exceptionally durable shower door glass by PPG, was named by editors of Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler magazines as one of the 101 best new products of 2012.

The honor, announced in the August issues of both magazines, recognizes the “most innovative new materials, finishes and systems geared toward the residential construction market” across 16 categories, such as windows, doors, home technology, kitchen and bath, and siding.

Clarvista glass for shower doors and bath and shower enclosures is made with a proprietary PPG coating that seals the glass surface, enabling it – with regular maintenance – to look newer longer than other shower glass products. The coating helps the glass resist corrosion caused by heat, humidity, soap and household cleaning products.

Clarvista shower glass is available with conventional clear glass or STARPHIRE(R) ultra-clear glass by PPG. When combined with Starphire glass, Clarvista glass produces a highly transparent shower glass, making it ideal for upscale homes, resorts and commercial spas.
