PPG introduces SOLARPHIRE AR new glass for the solar market

Post Time:Apr 29,2009Classify:Glass QuotationView:478

PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) has introduced Solarphire AR (anti-reflective) glass, a new product engineered to maximize solar energy transmission to solar-collecting photovoltaic cells.

Solarphire AR glass is formulated with a proprietary anti-reflective coating that facilitates the efficient conversion of solar light into energy. In 3.2-millimeter thicknesses, Solarphire AR glass yields a solar-weighted transmittance of more than 93 percent, making it one of the industry’s most transmissive glass products.

Solarphire AR glass continues PPG’s history of innovation in the development of stacked, thin-film coatings for glass. In 1983, PPG commercialized the world’s first coated low-emissivity (low-e) glass. Over the past quarter-century, the company has continued to advance thin-film coating technology, culminating most recently in the debut of Solarban 70XL glass, the architectural industry’s first magnetron sputterering vacuum deposition (MSVD), triple-silver-coated, low-e glass. The company’s thin-film coating capability is now being directed toward the production of solar energy.
