Pilkington North America announced the development of graphite blue, a light blue-grey tint that joins its Optifloat™ family of tinted glass. The new body-tinted solar control glass offers high daylight transmittance with a soft, blue-grey tone, according to the company.
The new graphite blue tint offers flexibility for original and innovative architectural designs where low reflection is required. It is also suitable for commercial applications requiring solar control. To achieve additional thermal insulation, the new tinted glass can be combined with the company’s Energy Advantage™ low-E glass in an insulating glass unit.
Pilkington Optifloat graphite blue is available in 6mm, 8mm and 10mm thicknesses. The substrate is also available with the company’s Solar-E™ Plus solar control pyrolytic coating.
