PPG receives U.S. Department of Energy funding for next-generation glazing technology
PPG, a recognized leader in energy efficient window technologies, has received funding from the Department of Energy (DOE) for a $2.86 million project to develop a fabricate-on-demand manufacturing process for vacuum insulated glazings (VIGs).
The DOE Building Technologies Office is contributing $2 million to the project, with the remaining funding provided through in-kind services from PPG and project partners. The proposal was collaborative effort between PPG’s business and research teams. Its implementation is expected to launch the next generation of energy efficient window manufacturing technology.
VIGs should provide higher insulating performance than current energy-efficient windows and will retrofit into existing walls more easily than today’s triple-pane windows. However, current VIGs are susceptible to easy stress-induced breakage during fabrication and in use, making them difficult and expensive to manufacture. This project’s goal is to make VIG manufacturing technically and economically feasible for window makers.
