Solarban® 72 Solar Control Low-E Glass

Greater transparency with no sacrifice in solar control

Solarban® 72 glass is a triple-silver-coated solar control low-e glass designed specifically for Vitro low-iron glass substrates, Starphire Ultra-Clear® Glass and Acuity™ Low-Iron Glass.

Solarban® 72 glass provides high visible light transmittance (VLT), exceptional clarity and superior solar control performance. The exceptionally clear aesthetic makes it the ideal choice for both interior and exterior applications, such as vision and spandrel glass. 

Solarban® 72 on Starphire® Glass
In a standard 1-inch insulating glass unit (IGU), Solarban® 72 Starphire® glass boasts a VLT approximating that of Solarban® 60 Starphire® glass, yet offers 25 percent better solar control. Solarban® 72 Starphire® glass also has solar control characteristics that are similar to those of Solarban® 70XL glass, the industry’s first triple-silver-coated solar control low-e glass, but it transmits 4 percent more visible light.

Solarban® 72 on Acuity™ Glass
The color-neutral aesthetic of the Solarban® 72 coating on Acuity™ Low-Iron Glass delivers excellent solar control and light transmittance to help strike the right balance between form and function. For low-e applications where conventional clear glass might typically be considered, Solarban® 72 Acuity™ Glass provides superior clarity for a modest cost increase. 

In a standard 1-inch IGU, Solarban® 72 Acuity™ glass delivers a VLT of 67 percent, which surpasses that of Solarban® 70XL glass, as well as a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.28, which is approximately equal to that of Solarban® 70XL glass.
