Silvered mirrors have long been a popular domestic application for the metal, with evidence suggesting that communities in China fashioned simple mirrors using silvermercury amalgams to coat metallic objects over fifteen centuries ago. During the nineteenth century, an effective method of coating silver onto glass was discovered in Germany which led to broader availability of affordable mirrors. There is a modern-day version of this technology all around us, yet few people are familiar with it. Hundreds of millions of square feet of silver-coated glass are used in buildings worldwide each year.

There are two key reasons for this. From an environmental perspective the transparent coating of silver gives the windows the ability to both reflect hot summer sun and retain internal heat. This permits easier climate control within larger buildings, thus minimizing energy usage. Also, from an esthetic perspective, silver provides an attractive hue popular with architects and building inhabitants alike.

In 2011, Silver News reported on the introduction of a new type of glass developed by PPG Industries. The technology, Solarban 72, contained a triple-silver coating, giving it excellent solar control capabilities alongside improved visible light transmittance.

Since its release, Solarban 72 glass has been used in numerous award-winning buildings worldwide, including LucasFilm’s Sandcrawler facility in Singapore and the Fulton Center in New York City.
