2 OCCUPANT COMFORT All of the windows above have the same exterior tint of glass. Why such a difference? The middle pane does not contain Suntuitive interlayer. Occupant Comfort is maximized by: Allowing for increased use of day lighting Minimizing heat gain

3 Aggregated Interior Illuminance, Lux A PATENTED, INNOVATIVE AND GREEN TECHNOLOGY Typical Vertical IGU Configuration Vertical Window SHGC Tsol Tvis Tdw ISO C 65 C Suntuitive dynamically tints to balance the sun s heat throughout the day. This creates a more consistent level of illuminance and temperature in a building throughout the year increasing occupant comfort. Houston, TX - West Orientation Conference Room Illuminance Suntuitive Skylight vs. 40% VLT Skylight South-facing window BENEFITS Suntuitive is perfect for: retrofits, new installations, commercial and residential use As a laminated glass system, Suntuitive interlayer also provides but is not limited to: Impact resistance Sound reduction Insulation Enhanced building security Reduction in interior glare Morning Noon Applications possible: vertical, sloped, curved or horizontal windows

4 BENEFITS CONTINUED Suntuitive interlayer is completely self sustaining No wires, power supply or control systems are needed Suntuitive interlayer tints to a neutral gray Suntuitive blocks ultraviolet light and helps reduce absorbed heat and light which is a significant cause of color fading to: Wall coverings Carpet Flooring Furniture Fabric Artwork Photographs Size: Up to 65 wide by 250 long Installation: Windows with Suntuitive install the same as any other typical IGU Spectral Irradiance Wm -2 nm -1 Wavelength nm Energy Savings: Suntuitive interlayer can help manage a building s changing needs for Passive solar gain Solar control Natural daylight transmittance Can lower costs associated with heating, air conditioning and artificial lighting (which is up to 70% of a building s total energy consumption) Potential to significantly downsize a building s heating and cooling systems Greatest energy savings come at the peak time of day when energy is the most expensive to produce LEED: Suntuitive interlayer can contribute toward LEED certification in: Energy & Atmosphere: Optimize Energy Performance (1-10 points possible) Indoor Environmental Quality: Controllability of Systems (2 points possible) Innovation & Design Process: Innovation in Design (4 points possible) Materials and Resources: Regional Materials (2 points possible) Indoor Environmental Quality: Thermal Comfort Design (1 point possible) Indoor Environmental Quality: Daylight and Views (2 points possible)

5 With fixed tints today: DESIGN OPTIONS A light tint will allow for high light transmission, excessive glare and solar heat gain on sunny days A dark tint will create low light transmission, increase artificial lighting costs, create a dreary effect on overcast days and will interfere with occupant s connection to the environment What is the point in installing windows if you cannot see out of them? Suntuitive helps preserve the view by reducing the need for shades, blinds, exterior overhangs and other lightblocking devices. The possibilities are endless Suntuitive interlayer can be enhanced by combining it with advanced architectural glass technology from PPG. Aesthetic and performance requirements can be met by selecting almost any combination of PPG clear and tinted glass for the exterior and Solarban 60 or Solarban 70XL for the interior. PRODUCT DETAILS Visible Light Transmittance: Max: 61% Min: 6% Solar Heat Gain: Min: 0.11% Durability: Suntuitive interlayer has undergone and successfully completed: Over 8,000 hours of accelerated aging tests under ASTM 2,500 hours of accelerated aging tests at NREL Impact, boil and pummel tests from CPSC
