Sungate® 400 Glass

Passive solar control coating helps reduce heating expenses

Sungate® 400 glass is a passive low-e glass from Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG glass) designed specifically for use in heating-dominated climates. Manufactured with an MSVD “soft coat,” Sungate® 400 glass aids commercial buildings in retaining solar and furnace heat to help reduce winter heating costs. In addition to offering excellent insulating performance, Sungate® 400 glass has an exceptionally clear aesthetic.

Sungate® 400 glass performs best when specified as a third-surface coating on Starphire® glass. In a 1-inch insulating glass unit, this configuration generates a winter U-value of 0.32 and a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.72, which is 13 percent better than the 0.63 SGHC attained with conventional clear glass in a third-surface configuration. Sungate® 400 glass also has been engineered to work with Solarban® 70XL and Solarban® 60 glasses to optimize performance in triple-pane insulating glass units.
