Rich-blue Pacifica® glass is part of Vitro Architectural Glass’s collection of nautically inspired tints and can be united with reflective Solarcool® or subtly reflective color-enriched Vistacool® coatings to offer architects a wide range of aesthetic options.


When high levels of solar control are desired, Pacifica glass can be paired with Solarban® 70XL glass in a 1-inch insulating glass unit (IGU) to achieve an exceptional a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.18, visible light transmittance (VLT) of 30 percent and a light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio of 1.63.


Architects have relied on blue and green tinted glasses for decades to give buildings a distinctive look and to reduce heat gain and glare. Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG glass) offers a collection of blue and green tints that can be paired with its exceptional range of advanced low-e and reflective coatings to offer architects more performance and aesthetic options than ever.


In addition to light-green Solexia® glass, which has been an industry mainstay since the 1930s, Vitro’s color palette includes aqua-blue Azuria® glass, emerald-green Atlantica® glass, skyblue Solarblue® glass and rich-blue Pacifica® glass. Using these tints with reflective Solarcool® and subtly-reflective Vistacool® glass coatings further multiplies the color selection.


Performance Characteristics

Blue and green tinted glasses are available with Solarban® solar control, low-e glasses or combined in an insulating glass unit (IGU) with Sungate® passive low-e glasses to fulfill a wide range of performance demands.


Fabrication and Availability

Blue and green tinted glasses, provide maximum processing flexibility and can be laminated, tempered or heat-strengthened to satisfy increased strength or safety glazing requirements. Vitro tinted glasses are available from hundreds of Vitro-qualified glass fabricators in the U.S., Canada and throughout the world. Tinted glasses with Solarban® glasses are available through the Vitro CertifiedTM Network.
