CLARVISTA glass recognized among ‘Products of the Year’ by USGlass magazine

Clear shower glass keeps showroom look longer than competing products


CLARVISTA(R) glass was named among 2012 “Products of the Year” by editors of USGlass, Metal & Glazing magazine. The picture above shows a single pane of shower glass after exposure to 1,000 continuous hours of 140 F temperatures and 95 percent relative humidity. The uncoated half (left) of the shower glass displays extensive corrosion. The half made with Clarvista glass (right) maintains its original clear appearance and shows no signs of corrosion. Clarvista shower glass is made with a proprietary coating that seals the glass surface, making it more resistant to corrosion caused by heat, humidity, soap and chemicals in household cleaning products.
PITTSBURGH, Jan. 21, 2013 – CLARVISTA(R) glass, a shower glass product made by PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG), was named among 2012 “Products of the Year” by editors of USGlass, Metal and Glazing magazine.

Clarvista glass is made with a proprietary coating that is fused on the glass, sealing the surface and making it resistant to corrosion caused by heat, humidity, soap and chemicals in household cleaning products. As a result, with regular maintenance, Clarvista glass can maintain its showroom looks longer than competing shower glass 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.
