PPG Industries, Pittsburgh, improved the solar transmittance ofSolarphire PV photovoltaic glass to help enhance the performance of solar energy collection components manufactured with this glass, according to a March 14 release.

Solarphire PV features ultra-low iron levels for high transmittance across the entire solar spectrum and a proprietary glass chemistry that increases solar transmittance in the near-infrared band. In thicknesses of up to 3.2 millimeters, the glass transmits up to 91 percent of total solar energy. It also is available with anti-reflective and corrosion-retardant coatings to satisfy the specific performance requirements of component manufacturers.
