SOLARBAN® R100 Solar Control Low-E Glass

One of the best-performing architectural glass product available

Solarban R100 glass is a neutral-reflective low-e glass that provides significant improvements in solar performance compared to competing products in the same architectural glass category. Because Solarban R100 glass uniquely balances reflectivity and color-neutrality, it can function as a privacy glass as well as in harmony with spandrels and other building materials.

Inside the building, Solarban R100 glass has reflectance of just 14 percent and transmits a pleasant, cool blue-gray appearance that reduces glare without creating an obtrusive reflected color for building occupants. Outside, Solarban R100 glass has exterior reflectance of 32 percent, which combines with the neutral aesthetic to deliver a clean, crisp exterior for any building project.

Solarban R100 glass has an excellent solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.23 and visible light transmittance (VLT) of 42 percent. The resulting light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio of 1.79 is up to 29 percent greater than competitive transparent-reflective low-e glasses, making Solarban R100 glass one of the best-performing architectural glass products on the market.

Because of its color-neutral appearance, Solarban R100 glass can be applied to a variety of high-performance tinted glasses from PPG’s ocean-inspired collection, as well as any from PPG’s earth-toned collection.
