With its ability to block 62 percent of total solar energy while allowing 70 percent of visible light to pass through, Vitro Architectural Glass’s (formerly PPG glass) Solarban® 60 glass can help you achieve a building design that provides year-round comfort with heating and cooling cost savings. In addition to functioning as a clear glass, Solarban® 60 glass also can be combined in insulating glass units (IGUs) with an outboard lite of tinted or reflective-tinted glass to increase aesthetic and performance options.
Solarban® 60 Starphire® glass can help you achieve your design vision of a glass building with the ultimate in transparency and visual clarity combined with energy efficiency. Solarban® 60 Starphire® glass allows ultra-clear glass to be used for vision glass, skylights, atriums, storefronts and entryways without sacrificing energy performance. Used in a 1-inch IGU, Solarban® 60 Starphire® glass provides high visible light transmittance (74 percent) while offering superior solar control (0.40 solar heat gain coefficient).
