PPG earned Cradle to Cradle Certification for all its architectural glass products in 2008, and it remains the only glass manufacturer in the world to have achieved this distinction.

• Solarban R100 glass is a neutral-reflective, solar control, low-emissivity glass with visible light transmittance (VLT) of 42 percent, a solar heat-gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.23, and a 1.79 light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio that is up to 29 percent greater than that of competing products in the same architectural glass category.
• Sungate 400 glass is a passive, low-e glass with a magnetron-sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) “soft coat” that helps commercial buildings in heating-dominated climates retain heat from the sun and reduce winter heating costs.
• Clarvista shower glass for shower doors and bath and shower enclosures has proven through industry-standard tests that, with regular maintenance, it looks newer longer than other shower glass products.

The three glasses were named as CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED(CM) products after an audit of the materials used in their formulation and production, and the processes used to manufacture them. Cradle to Cradle Certification is awarded by MBDC (McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry), which independently evaluates the total impact of a product on human health and the environment throughout its life cycle. Considerations include sustainability of the product’s material ingredients and their ability to be reutilized, and how efficiently water and energy are used in the product’s manufacture. The product manufacturer also must demonstrate socially responsible corporate practices that encompass social fairness, ethical business standards and environmental stewardship.

Building projects seeking Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council may be able to earn one point in the “Innovation in Design” category by using Cradle to Cradle Certified products.
