Glass that combines a warm, neutral aesthetic with advanced solar control
Optigray glass, the newest addition to PPG’s collection of neutral tinted glasses, is designed to eliminate the green cast typically found in conventional clear glass formulations. It produces a warm, ultra-neutral aesthetic that brings crispness to vision glazing.
Specially formulated to function as a substrate with solar control low-e coatings, Optigray glass delivers advanced solar performance. When paired with solar control low-e glasses such as Solarban® 70XL, Solarban 67, Solarban 60 and Solarban R100 glasses by PPG. Optigray glass produces light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratios of up to 1.96, with visible light transmission (VLT) between 29 percent and 50 percent, depending on which Solarban glass is specified.
With a subtle light-gray tint, Optigray glass balances light transmittance and solar control to offer superior performance combined with a beautiful aesthetic.
For detailed performance data, please review the Optigray glass product data sheet.

Solargray glass has been a popular choice for commercial structures because of its cool, light-gray appearance and ability to control solar heat gain and glare. In a 1-inch insulating glass unit (IGU), Solargray glass provides visual light transmittance (VLT) of 40 percent. Solargray glass may also be combined with Sungate® 400 glass in a 1-inch IGU for improved solar heat gain performance and lower U-values. Solargray glass's light-gray color makes it an attractive choice in combination with almost any other exterior cladding material.

Privacy glass with a punch
With its bold, almost-black look, Graylite II glass is the solution for applications requiring reduced solar heat gain and a specific aesthetic objective. Graylite II glass combines superior heat-load reduction and solar control with a distinctive color contrast. Its shading coefficient is among the lowest of any uncoated glass: 0.35 for a 1-inch IGU. Daylight transmittance is 8 percent, making it ideal for glare control and privacy glazing.

A proven high-performance bronze glass
Solarbronze glass has been a staple in PPG’s architectural glass offerings since the 1960s because it creates a bold visual statement while maintaining energy efficiency and occupant comfort. A popular choice for commercial structures, Solarbronze glass has a warm bronze tint that adds subtle richness to the exterior and a warm glow to interior décor. The bronze color especially complements brick and stone facades.
In a 1-inch IGU, Solarbronze glass provides a visual light transmittance (VLT) of 47 percent. For even better performance, combine Solarbronze glass with Sungate 400 glass in a 1-inch IGU to improve solar heat gain performance and lower U-values. To achieve spectrally selective glass, as recommended by the U.S. Department of Energy, team Solarbronze glass with Solarban® 60 solar control low-e glass to earn a light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio of 1.25 or better.
