Post Time:Oct 20,2010Classify:Industry NewsView:102

PPG Industries, Pittsburgh,has introduced dual-coat technology that helps dual-pane insulating glass units for residential applications achieve R-5 insulating performance, according to an Oct. 19 release.

The dual-coat technology incorporates one 3-millimeter pane of Solarban 70XL glass on the second (#2) surface of the IGU and one 3-mm pane of Sungate 500 glass on the fourth (#4) surface, separated by a ?-inch of argon-filled space. The configuration generates a winter nighttime U-value of 0.20, providing insulating performance that is better than or equal to any competing dual-pane IGU on the market.
