|Solarcool® glasses provide maximum flexibility due to the durability of the metallic
oxide coating, which is deposited onto the float glass during production.
Thus, Solarcool® glass can be glazed with the reflective coating positioned on either
the first (#1) or second (#2) surface. The glass has improved performance, higher
exterior visible reflectivity and a slight bronze hue when installed with the coating on
the first surface. When installed with the coating on the second surface, Solarcool®
glass has lower exterior visible reflectivity while maintaining the substrate glass
Solarcool® coated glass can be used monolithically or combined with clear glass in
an insulating glass unit for greater thermal performance. When joined with PPG’s
Solarban® 60 solar control, Low-E glasses, even more significant performance
results. Click here to see insulated glass unit comparison data.
New! Solarcool® Caribia™ Glass
Caribia™ glass, when combined with Solarcool® coating on the #2 surface, creates
a unique warm green aesthetic that blends nicely with the surrounding environment.
Along with the other ocean-inspired reflective products, Solarcool® Azuria™ and
Solarcool® Solexia™ glasses, Solarcool®,Caribia™ provides both excellent light
transmittance and a low solar heat gain coefficient for exceptional solar control
The warm green hue of Solarcool® Caribia™ glass becomes muted when the
reflective coating is used on the #1 surface. The result is a more reflective, metallic
Solarcool® Solexia™ Glass
With the soft reflectivity of Solarcool® coated glass and light green color of
Solarcool® tinted glass, Solarcool® Solexia™ glass can create standout aesthetics
for any commercial project.
When glazed with the reflective coating facing inboard (#2), Solarcool® (2) Solexia™
glass has a natural-green reflectivity that enhances the beauty of its surroundings,
while harmonizing with other natural building materials.
When glazed with reflective coating on the outboard (#1) surface, Solarcool® (1)
Solexia™ glass has higher visible light reflectivity that adapts to changing light
conditions and the surrounding andscape.
Solarcool® Azuria™ Glass
Solarcool® coated Azuria™ glass takes the best properties of two superb PPG glass
products and combines them into one. With the coating on the #2 surface, the softly
reflective aquamarine color of the glass is visually stunning. Because Solarcool®
Azuria™ glass transmits more visible light than most competitive products, building
interiors will be brighter and will require less artificial lighting.
When the Solarcool® coated surface is in the #1 position, outdoor reflectivity is
increased and the solar heat gain is decreased, resulting in reduced air-conditioning
loads. Outdoor reflected color is more neutral.
Solarcool® Bronze Glass
Solarcool® bronze glass provides a silver-bronze aesthetic and reduced solar heat
gain when glazed with the reflective coating on the outboard (#1) surface and a dark-
bronze aesthetic when glazed with the reflective coating on the inboard (#2) surface.
With the reflective coating on the #2 surface, Solarcool® bronze glass has subtle
Solarcool® Gray Glass
Solarcool® gray glass provides a silvery aesthetic when glazed with the reflective
coating on the outboard (#1) surface and a dark gray aesthetic when glazed with the
reflective coating on the inboard (#2) surface. Solarcool® (2) gray glass is the
solution when a true gray color is desired in a low-reflectivity glass.
Solarcool® Graylite® Glass
Solarcool® Graylite® glass provides a rich silver aesthetic when glazed with the
reflective coating on the outboard (#1) surface and a dramatic, almost-black
aesthetic when glazed with the reflective coating on the inboard (#2) surface. The
very low visible light transmittance of Solarcool® Graylite® glass (5% for one inch
insulating unit) makes it ideal for privacy glazing applications or high sunlight
climates where glare control is required
