Coatings are microscopically thin layers of metal that are applied to glass in order to improve solar performance. Low-E (Low-Emissivity) coatings are among the most popular coatings applied to glass because of their low heat transfer properties. They also allow greater light transmission than traditional reflective coatings.
Tecnoglass offers a wide variety of Low-E and reflective coatings. We can also add silk-screen patterns for a superior blend of solar performance and aesthetics.

N70/38 PRIVATE LABEL of Solarban 60
Tecnoglass N70/38 was developed to enhance Solar Control Low-E giving new architectural projects the energy saving benefits of Low-E glass anytime of the year. Now you can have the perfect balance for controlling heat transfer during the summer, but also preserving inside a portion of heat during the winter, thus controlling overall energy costs of temperature conditioning and lighting. A winter U Value of .29 and a summer U-Value of .27 are the perfect combination for controlling heat loss in the winter and heat transfer in the summer.
Whether you’re looking for a product that has solar control to help you achieve LEED points or to protect artwork or flooring, N70/38 is the right option.
This high-performance glass that can be combined with both silk screen patterns and laminated glass.
Tecnoglass N70/38 clear glass can achieve a SHGC as low as .39 blocking on average 66% of the total solar energy while allowing between 70% of the visible light to pass through. Using the combination of N70/38 and a tinted glass can reduce solar heat gain down to as low as a SHGC of .13, and produces an excellent Light to Solar Gain ratio as high as 1.79 (LSG).
Tecnoglass N70/38 glass can be coated on Starphire® glass and paired with Starphire® glass or with other ultra-clear glasses to produce an IGU with exceptional clarity and solar control characteristics. For even more color and performance options, it can be coated on the second (#2) surface of nearly all PPG’s wide range of tinted glasses, or combined in an IGU with any PPG tinted glass, Solarcool® reflective glass or Vistacool® subtly reflective, color-enhanced glass.
The environmental and financial benefits of Low-E glass are the driving force behind today’s commercial market. Contact us to learn more.
With its transparent, color-neutral aesthetic and unprecedented solar control and visible light transmittance characteristics, Solarban 70XL glass can help you strike the right balance between form and function.
When coupled with conventional clear glass in a 1-inch insulating glass unit, Solarban 70XL glass outshines the performance of any other solar control Low-E glass on the market today. Additionally, Solarban 70XL glass can be combined in an insulating glass unit with any tinted glass from PPG, including the five tints from the Blues & Greens collection, as well as any PPG performance or high-performance bronze or gray tint.
The 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.
