Pilkington Arctic Blue™ is a high performance body-tinted float glass in a unique blue color, that offers solar control performance without the use of surface coating. Its solar control properties and color density vary with each thickness so that glass with properties appropriate to a particular application can be chosen.
Pilkington has been proud to be the technological leader in glass manufacturing for many years. Whether it's improved processes such as the float glass manufacturing process; of which produce more than 95% of glass worldwide, advanced coating technologies (pyrolytic or hard-coat coatings that require significantly less energy to produce than soft coated glass), or our wide range of solar and thermal control glass products, Pilkington is proud to lead in areas of environmental consciousness, sustainable building, and green building initiatives.
Pilkington North America is now sponsoring a Continuing
Education Center. This educational resource helps architects, specifiers, students and construction industry professionals learn about glass design, specification and production. The courses feature comprehensive information on a variety of topics, including:
- Design Solutions Using High-Performance Glass
- Glass and Energy
- Properties and Performance of Vacuum Insulated Glazing
