PPG and environmentally-friendly building practices have always been synonymous. We are known for our energy-saving, solar control, low-e glasses that also offer amazing design possibilities with tints that range from the clearest ultra-clear glass to exquisite ocean- and nature-inspired hues. From the introduction in 1934 of Solex glass, now known as Solexia, as the world's first spectrally selective architectural glass to today's passive low-e and advanced solar control low-e coatings, such as Solarban 70XL glass, which features the industry's first triple-silver, low-e coating, PPG has been a sustainability leader. In fact, we are the first company to achieve the prestigious Cradle to Cradle® certification for our entire collection of architectural glasses.
