PPG Industries announced that its Architectural Glass Binder, a fixture in architects’ libraries and offices for generations, is now available in a digital, downloadable format at www.ppgglassbinder.com.
Glenn T. Miner, PPG director of construction, flat glass, said the decision to digitize the binder, which encompasses all the printed material needed to specify or design with PPG glass, reflects the company’s long-standing commitment to “green” building and design.
In addition to data sheets, product catalogs and performance data for popular PPG products such as SOLARBAN, STARPHIRE and SUNGATE glasses, the online binder contains technical documents, details for thermal stress and wind load analyses and complete product specifications.
The binder is a gateway to PPG’s expanding array of electronic specification tools such as the Architectural Glass Configurator, Architectural Glass Performance Calculator and a searchable project library tool containing hundreds of product application photos. Sourcing information for PPG CFP CERTIFIED FABRICATOR PROGRAM participants, downloadable white papers and dozens of building profiles also are featured. Additionally, architects can use the binder to learn about PPG architectural coatings such as DURANAR, CORAFLON and PPG PITTSBURGH PAINTS brand products.
