Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG)
Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) will highlight popular brands such as Solarban® solar control, low-e glass; Starphire® Ultra-Clear glass; and Sungate® passive low-e glass; all produced and supported by the same people and manufactured in the same U.S. plants trusted the world over by architects, glazing contractors and fabricators.
