SOLARBAN® GLASS - High Performing, Aesthetically Pleasing


By nature, low-emissivity (low-e) glass is spectrally selective, meaning long and short wave radiation from the sun (ultraviolet and infrared radiation) are reduced while visible light is still allowed to transmit through the glass.  Solar control low-e glass allows you to specify larger spans of glass to maximize natural daylighting without sacrificing thermal efficiency.

For decades, Solarban® solar control, low-e glasses have set the standard for solar control performance in the architectural glass industry.  Whether choosing from our variety of double-silver, triple-silver, our newest Solarban® 90, reflective, neutral, tinted, or ultra clear, Solarban® MSVD products give architects an almost limitless selection of aesthetic and environmental performance options.

Clarvista™ Shower Glass

Normal uncoated glass, and even the leading coated shower glass, is susceptible to corrosion.  Corrosion leads to the haze that can make your shower enclosure look dull over time.  The true beauty of the tough, smooth surface of CLARVISTA  glass becomes apparent in its ability to resist the corrosive action of moisture, humidity and the chemicals found in many household cleaners.

CLARVISTA  Glass has a coating, fused to the glass, sealing the glass surface to provide a protective barrier.  The coating withstands the high temperatures required to thermally temper (strengthen) glass to meet safety codes for shower enclosures.  Which is why, with regular maintenance, shower enclosures built with any of the available varieties of Clarvista glass can keep their “like new” look longer.  Available on clear or Starphire Ultra-Clear Glass™.

Reflective Glasses by PPG

VISTACOOL® GlassesSoftly reflective with rich color
Vistacool subtly reflective color-enriched glasses transmit generous levels of visible light and provides color neutrality, which amplifies and enriches the tint of the glass substrate underneath without a mirror-like appearance. More understated than traditional reflective glass, Vistacool glasses are available in two distinct tints—aqua-blue Azuria® and rich-blue Pacifica®.  Vistacool glasses can be combined with Solarban® solar control low-e glass or Sungate® 400 low-e glass to achieve light-to-solar gain ratios of as high as 1.66.

SOLARCOOL® GlassesThe Solarcool family of reflective coated glass was introduced in 1972 and, for more than 40 years, has enhanced the appearance of thousands of buildings and the comfort of millions of their inhabitants. 

Solarcool glasses can be glazed with the reflective coating positioned on either the first or second surface. The glass has improved performance and higher exterior visible-reflectivity with a metallic sheen when installed with the coating on the first surface. Combined in a 1-inch insulating glass unit with clear glass, Solarcool glasses offer an expansive palette of appearance and performance options with solar heat gain coefficients (SHGCs) ranging from 0.34 to 0.14 and exterior reflectance of up to 37 percent.

When installed with the coating on the second surface, the glass has lower exterior visible reflectivity and maintains the substrate glass color. Combine Solarcool glasses with PPG tinted glasses, such as Solargray®, Solarbronze®, Solexia®, Solarblue®, Azuria® or Pacifica®, to produce an even greater range of aesthetic options.

USGNN: Vitro CEO on PPG Deal: “We’re Very Excited”

Posted on August 1, 2016 by Trey Barrineau 
On July 21, a blockbuster deal was announced in the glass business: PPG, which helped launch the industry in the U.S. 133 years ago, sold the assets of its flat glass division to Mexico-based manufacturer Vitro for $750 million in gross cash proceeds.

In the days that followed, USGNN.com™ examined the impact of the mega-deal on PPG’s business in a series of stories (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). Today, Adrian Sada Cueva, the CEO of Vitro, answered questions from USGNN.com™ on what the expansion means for his company.

Q: What attributes of PPG were you most interested in?

A:  From the strategic perspective, there are several things to take note of. One is just the idea or the concept of bringing these two talented teams to work together. It’s just amazing. Both groups have been operating for more than 100 years, so you cannot imagine all the great things that can come out of permitting these two teams to work together, so we’re very excited on that end. Another interesting aspect is the size that this new business unit will have. It will become the most important business unit of Vitro after closing, and of course the sheer strength of this company means it will have a longer-term perspective and invest more and face our competitors in several geographies. Another important aspect for us is that we will be able to participate in the U.S., which is a very important market. It’s very dynamic with a high demand for value-added products.

Q: Have you been a part of other acquisitions in the past? How does this compare?

A: Vitro has acquired companies in the past, but it’s been a very long time; about 27 years since the most relevant acquisition. This (PPG deal) is very different in many ways. One is that Vitro today is a much more focused company. Back then, Vitro was a conglomerate with a broader span of business units. We were in the home appliance business back then, along with plastics, textiles, chemicals and so on. Today, Vitro is a different company. We’re much more focused. It’s part of the work we’ve been doing the past few years creating a stronger and much more focused company. So in that regard, I do believe this transaction is much, much different. I would also add that PPG is a leading technology company in the glass industry, and that’s very different from other acquisitions we’ve made in the past. This is a very, very strong company with a strong, historical track record of success.

Q: Is there anything you’d like PPG employees to know about the consolidation of the two companies?

A: We’ve already made a few statements through other channels of communications. We’re inviting all the employees in the glass unit to participate with us and take part in this great new chapter for both companies in which we’ll create a much more powerful and larger company.

Q: A year from now, when you look back on this, what will determine how successful of an acquisition this was?

A: I think that’s part of the different perspective we have. We have a long-term perspective, and I think it will be difficult to evaluate in a year a decision of this magnitude. This is something we bring to the table. As you know, PPG has been more focused on its coatings business, and we’ve been focusing much more on the flat glass business unit, and that’s what we bring, a longer-term perspective for sure.

Q: When we spoke with Richard Beuke from PPG, he talked a lot about how PPG has a significant research component. Could you talk a little bit about that and some of the things you’re interested in exploring or researching?

A: We’re not planning to move the research center. We’re planning to reinforce that center. We want them to have a broader reach now. They’re going to have to support a much larger operation. It’s going to be a bit more demanding, for sure. They’re also going to support our automobile glass business unit.

Q: Any final thoughts?

A: We’re very excited. PPG is a great company. We’re excited to bring these two teams together, to collaborate to create this great company that’s more diversified. Again, we’re very excited to participate in the U.S. We’re hoping we can bring a longer-term perspective to the business which will permit us to invest more in research and development and add more value to our customers.

USGNN: Vitro’s Purchase of PPG Glass: Looking Forward

Posted on July 27, 2016 by Nick St. Denis
Many factors came into play to make PPG’s glass business a fit for Vitro. One of them was the Mexican manufacturer’s desire to bolster its research branch.

PPG vice president of flat glass Dick Beuke told USGNN.com™ in an exclusive interview that “the biggest thing” that attracted Vitro to the business was PPG’s research operations. The company has a large research and development center in Harmar, Pa.

“Research drives value for our customers,” he said, adding that success in that department depends on this question: “How will the research going on now play out in the next two to five years, to expand our market and opportunities?”

Beuke said Vitro is “really excited to get into the coatings business.” PPG’s operations will add low-E capability to Vitro’s offerings, and Beuke is particularly excited about the potential for research geared toward the automotive industry. PPG divested its automotive business in 2008 and sold its share in Pittsburgh Glass Works earlier this year.

“Vitro is a very big automotive supplier, so our research capability should be able to help there,” Beuke said.

PPG’s research facility currently houses part of its architectural paint business, and Beuke said the segment of PPG will continue to operate there as a tenant. “It’s not competitive at all—it’s a collaborative environment,” he said. “There’s not a lot of overlap between coatings on glass and coatings on buildings.”

Vitro will take over the glass manufacturing and glass coatings operations in Fresno, Calif.; Salem, Ore.; Carlisle, Pa.; and Wichita Falls, Texas, as well as four distribution/fabrication facilities in Canada, and the research-and-development center near Pittsburgh. PPG’s flat glass business includes approximately 1,200 employees, all of whom Vitro will retain.

Beuke said the executive team hasn’t yet discussed potential for expansion in North America, but Vitro has committed to adding capacity in Monterrey, Mexico.

Looking forward, Beuke is optimistic and believes PPG’s 133-year-old glass business is in good hands with the 107-year-old Mexico-based manufacturer.

“We’re going to have fun with this,” he said. “One thing I noticed with the Vitro guys is they like to have fun. So we’re going to have fun.”

USGNN: How PPG is Transitioning its Glass Business to Vitro

Posted on July 26, 2016 by Nick St. Denis
News of the PPG Glass sale to Vitro began internally at a staff meeting held at 8:05 a.m. last Thursday, roughly a half hour before the company announced to the world that it was selling its flat glass business to the Mexican manufacturer.

“[We received] a very positive response from all the employees,” PPG vice president of flat glass Dick Beuke told USGNN.com™ in an exclusive interview. “Everyone understood Vitro would provide bigger and better opportunities for us.”

Perhaps the most important factor in Vitro’s impending acquisition of PPG’s flat glass business assets for $750 million, at least for the employees, is that the company would retain all staff, operating facilities and processes. The major difference would be that the business would operate under a company exclusively focused on the manufacture and development of glass as opposed to one focused primarily on coatings. It was moving from one where glass was “important, but not strategic” to one where it was both.

PPG sought to put the business in hands that would help it grow, and Vitro was the right company at the right time.

Beuke said Vitro’s executives are dedicated to the people who currently make up the business. “Their CEO is committed to North America and the U.S.,” he said. “They are buying a U.S. business and want the U.S. people to run it. … They’ve been very sensitive to that.”

Based on discussions, Beuke expects Vitro will replicate all employee benefits within the North American business. “That’s going to be our challenge over the next four to six months—to get off of PPG’s systems and benefits, and move to Vitro’s. But the anticipation is that all benefits will stand. We know it’s a very important area, and the CEO of Vitro is very committed to the people.”

While the business foresees a smooth transition for employees, it is working to ensure the same for its customers.

“The first thing we did was we got out in front of it,” said Beuke. “We told our customers that the sales person you were dealing with yesterday will be the same person you’re going to deal with in the future.”

“It’s the same with our entire organization,” he added. “Probably the biggest concern was, ‘What’s going to change?’ Vitro doesn’t have a U.S. presence, and we have very weak presence in Mexico. … The people and the processes aren’t changing, because there’s no overlap.”

He said the business also plans to maintain its current affiliations with other companies in the industry, and that it will keep its certified fabricator program.

Eventually, all trademarks and PPG product lines will move to Vitro. “Over time, we will have a brand transition from PPG Glass to Vitro Glass,” Beuke said. “… That will take some time.”

USGNN EXCLUSIVE: What Led to PPG’s Sale of its Glass Business?

Posted on July 25, 2016 by Nick St. Denis
It was only a matter of time. And at the halfway point of 2016, the timing was right.

Last week, PPG and Mexico-based glass manufacturer Vitro announced Vitro is purchasing the assets of PPG’s flat glass business for $750 million. Given PPG’s illustrious 133-year history in glass, the move sent waves throughout the industry—though it apparently hadn’t come as a complete shock.

Over the last decade, PPG has made no secret of its desire to divest of its flat glass segment. In an exclusive interview with USGNN.com™, PPG vice president of flat glass Dick Beuke said the company came to believe over the last ten years that “glass was an important part of the business, but it was not strategic.”

“I never want to say it’s always been for sale, but we all knew if the right partner came along, we’d talk to them,” said Beuke. “And that’s what happened when Vitro approached us a couple years ago with interest in getting deeper into the U.S. business.”

The companies began discussions in October 2014 at the glasstec show in Germany regarding the potential for a sale. The opportunity became more of a reality when Vitro sold its container business a year ago, which freed up capital to pursue an investment into the U.S. market.

Meanwhile, PPG has put an emphasis on the coatings side of the company with a handful of big acquisitions in the past two years, namely the purchase of Comex. Coatings had already made up more than 90 percent of PPG’s business when it announced the sale of its glass segment last week.

With PPG’s focus on coatings and Vitro positioning itself for investment, the timing was right. PPG hadn’t received any other formal offers for the glass business, but there was interest from beyond, according to Beuke. “No one was beating the door down, but others were interested,” he said.

He said the company “learned a lot” from selling its automotive business to private equity in 2008. “[Corporate] wanted a strategic partner, and one where there was not a lot of overlap,” he said. “[PPG] was looking for someone that would keep the business alive.”

Vitro was especially interested in the research aspect of PPG’s business. “When they toured our research center in the early stages … their CEO was really impressed, and they all thought it was a good fit,” said Beuke.

Beuke said with the purchase, Vitro will retain all employees and that it will continue to operate as usual at its various facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada. “The people and the processes will be the same,” he said. “From a customer appearance, nothing should change.”

Ultimately, he said the purchase will mean bigger and better things for the business. He said PPG recognized during the latest recession that it “wouldn’t be a leader anymore from a capacity standpoint” but that the business could be a good fit for another company.

“[Vitro’s purchase] creates a leading producer of flat glass in North America,” he said. “It puts us in a strong position in size. In this business, you either have to invest in it and be committed, or you have to get out. And PPG decided it would have a better future with someone else to create that opportunity.”

This is the first in a series of stories covering the aftermath of PPG’s glass business sale to Vitro. Stay tuned to USGNN.com™ this week for more on what the purchase means for the present and future.
