PPG INDUSTRIES: Low-e Glass
This company has introduced SOLARBAN® z75 glass, a solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) glass with a proven track record of international success, in North America. The glass features a neutral, cool-gray tint and reportedly offers a combination of visible light transmittance (VLT), solar control and glare control characteristics.
In a standard 1-in. insulating glass unit, Solarban z75 glass has VLT of 48% and a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.24, resulting in a light-to-solar-gain (LSG) ratio of 2.00. The glass has exterior reflectance of 9%, which, together with its neutral, cool-gray aesthetic, reportedly enables it to harmonize well with other building materials and color-neutral, low-e glasses such as Solarban z50, Solarban 67 and Solarban R100 glasses
