Pilkington North America has introduced Pilkington Graphite Blue, a body-tinted, solar-control glass that offers high daylight transmittance with a light blue-grey tint. This tint is the latest addition to the company’s High Performance Tint product line that includes Pilkington Arctic Blue, Pilkington EverGreen and Pilkington SuperGrey.
Pilkington Graphite Blue offers, says its manufacturers, flexibility for innovative architectural design where low reflection is required. With high daylight transmittance and energy absorption, it is suitable for any commercial application requiring solar control. Combined with Pilkington Energy Advantage low-E glass in an insulating glass unit, Pilkington Graphite Blue can achieve additional thermal insulation.
Pilkington Graphite Blue is available in 6mm, 8mm and 10mm thicknesses, and is also offered with the Pilkington Solar-E Plus solar-control pyrolytic coating for enhanced solar and thermal control, reduced glare and low UV transmittance.
