Solarban® 67 Solar Control Low-E Glass by PPG

Solarban 67 glass represents an entirely new vision for transparent, solar control, low-e glasses, featuring a soft, almost imperceptible, neutral coating that endows commercial buildings with a crisp, clean and brilliantly clear exterior appearance, along with the excellent solar control performance architects have learned to associate with the Solarban glass family.

A proprietary double-silver, MSVD coating developed by PPG enables Solarban 67 glass to transmit and reflect the timbre and brightness of ambient light and color more honestly than any product of its kind. The glass’s crispness and clarity is further enhanced by 16 percent interior reflectivity and 19 percent exterior reflectivity.

Proven Solar Control Performance
The coating on Solarban 67 glass also delivers solar control performance not typically associated with such high levels of transparency. Combined with clear glass in a 1-inch IGU, Solarban 67 glass has visible light transmittance (VLT) of 54 percent and a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.29, which produces an impressive light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio of 1.85 that helps buildings meet stringent mandates for energy and environmental performance.

Choices are More Than Clear
Solarban 67 glass can be specified in an IGU with clear glass, with blue-green tinted glasses from the Oceans of Color collection, or with earth-toned colors from the Earth & Sky family of performance tints to provide a full spectrum of aesthetic options, SHGCs from 0.19 to 0.34 and VLTs of up to 42 percent. Solarban 67 glass may also be united with Vistacool™ subtly reflective or Solarcool® traditionally reflective glasses.
