High Performance PPG Glass

Proven Products Maximize Solar Power Efficiency

PPG is one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance glass and coatings, two product categories vital to the production of solar energy. Before the solar industry even existed, PPG made a major contribution by pioneering the first low-iron glass, Waterwhite glass, in the 1930s. Today, the legacy of innovation responsible for Waterwhite glass is the basis for PPG's complete line of Starphire and Solarphire glasses. Starphire glass, which was introduced in 1989 as the first large-volume, commerically available, low-iron glass, features visible light transmittance of more than 91 percent in common three to four-millimeter thicknesses. Beyond Starphire and Solarphire glass, PPG has a long and distinguished record of innovation and leadership in the development of stacked, thin-film coatings for glass. In 1983, PPG commercialized the world's first coated low-e glass. Over the past quarter-century, the company has continued to advance thin-film coating technology, which culminated most recently in the debut of the industry's first MSVD, triple-silver-coated, low-e glass for the architectural industry. This technical expertise is now being used to enhance the performance of coated glasses for the solar industry as well.
