PPG Introduces Glass for Heating-Dominated Climates

PPG Industries has introduced SUNGATE® 600 glass, a passive, low-emissivity glass that is designed to help homes retain furnace and solar heat, especially in cold, northern climates. The glass features a pyrolytic coating developed specifically for application on the exposed room-side (No. 4) surface of an insulating glass unit (IGU). The coating is reportedly durable because it is chemically bonded to the glass while it is still molten. In addition, its star-crystalline structure gives Sungate 600 glass a smooth surface that can be cleaned more easily than most other pyrolytic coated glasses.

Placing Sungate 600 glass on the most interior surface of an IGU reportedly optimizes its ability to trap heat from the furnace and winter sun, which can keep living spaces warmer and reduce energy consumption during the coldest months of the year.
