PPG Flat Glass

Since 1883, PPG has been at the forefront of technological and environmental advances in the glass industry. PPG was a pioneer in the development of heat-absorbing glass in the 1930s and low-emissivity (low-e) glass more than 20 years ago. PPG is the first and only glass manufacturer in the United States to earn CRADLE to CRADLE® Certification for its entire line of high performance architectural glass products, which signals PPG’s commitment to environmental stewardship and is a benchmark of our dedication to developing and enhancing sustainable products.

PPG Flat Glass is a leading manufacturer of glass that is fabricated into products primarily for the commercial construction and residential market segments, as well as the appliance, mirror, solar power and transportation industries.
