The George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, which is LEED(R) certified
at the Platinum level by the U.S. Green Building Council, was constructed with
PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) products such as SOLARBAN(R) 70XL STARPHIRE(R) glass
in the windows and CORAFLON(R) ADS (air-dried system) coatings on the exterior
metal trim and doors. These products are part of the ECOLOGICAL SOLUTIONS FROM
PPG(TM) portfolio. (Photo courtesy of the Bryan-College Station Convention and

Solarban 70XL Starphire glass, one the industry’s highest-performing solar
control, low-emissivity (low-e) glass products, is part of an integrated
energy-management system that incorporates high-efficiency heating,
ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems, solar power for electricity
and hot water, exterior overhangs, and a green roof system that reduces the
center’s heating and cooling demands.

Made with a triple-silver coating on a low-iron glass substrate, Solarban 70XL
Starphire glass offers an exceptional balance of transparency and solar
control. In a standard 1-inch insulating glass unit, it has visible light
transmittance (VLT) of 64 percent and a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of
0.27, which produces a light-to-solar-gain (LSG) ratio of 2.37.

Although Solarban 70XL Starphire glass was specified throughout the center, it
is featured most prominently in Freedom Hall, the building’s central
orientation point, which is topped by a 67-foot-high, 50-by-50-foot glass and
limestone lantern. Solarban 70XL glass enables daylight from the lantern to
flood the core of the building and to appear as a soft-glowing beacon that is
visible from Dallas at night.

Seal Grip priming products and Pure Performance paint by the PPG PITTSBURGH
PAINTS(R) brand are featured in the center’s replica Oval Office, where they
cover the walls, millwork and trim. Pure Performance paint is a zero-volatile
organic compound (VOC) premium latex interior paint. Seal Grip priming
products meet VOC-compliance standards for the South Coast Air Quality
Management District (SCAQMD), Lake Michigan Air Directors Consortium (LADCO),
California Air Resources Board (CARB), Super-Compliant
Architectural/Industrial (AIM) Coatings and the Ozone Transport Commission
(OTC).

Coraflon ADS coatings color and protect the center’s exterior metal trim and
doors. These next-generation low-VOC coatings retain color and gloss longer
than conventional coating systems, and they resist chalking and repel surface
dirt to reduce cleaning cycles.

The George W. Bush Presidential Center was designed by Robert A.M. Stern
Architects, New York. Along with high levels of daylighting and reduced energy
use, the 226,000-square-foot building incorporates low-VOC-emitting materials
to promote indoor air quality and regionally sourced materials.

Pure Performance paint and Seal Grip priming products are both GREENGUARD(R)
and GREENGUARD Gold certified. Solarban 70XL Starphire glass is approved by
the CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED(CM) program.
