SOLARBAN® 60 Solar Control Low-E Glass

The original environmental performer

With its ability to block 62 percent of total solar energy while allowing 70 percent of visible light to pass through, PPG’s Solarban 60 glass can help you achieve a building design that provides year-round comfort with heating and cooling cost savings.  In addition to functioning as a clear glass, Solarban 60 glass also can be combined in insulating glass units (IGUs) with an outboard lite of PPG tinted or reflective-tinted glass to increase aesthetic and performance options.


Solarban 60 Starphire glass can help you achieve your design vision of a glass building with the ultimate in transparency and visual clarity combined with energy efficiency. Solarban 60 Starphire glass allows ultra-clear glass to be used for vision glass, skylights, atriums, storefronts and entryways without sacrificing energy performance. Used in a 1-inch IGU, Solarban 60 Starphire glass provides high visible light transmittance (74 percent) while offering superior solar control (0.40 solar heat gain coefficient).
