Best-In-Class Solar Performance with a Vibrant, Neutral-Graphite Appearance
Viracon’s VRE-3117 is its highest-performance solar control architectural glass coating. With a Visible Light Transmission
(VLT) of 31%, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of 0.17, VRE-3117 is amongst the highest performing low-e coatings on the
market. Featuring lower exterior reflectance and bright neutral cool-graphite reflected tones, once again Viracon affords
architects yet another option to address demanding performance and aesthetic requirements.
VRE-3117 is part of our new VRE line, engineered via a recently patented process to respond to today’s demanding
requirements while preserving the VRE experience featured on over 2,000 buildings the world over. New VRE was developed
to meet the requirements as expressed by Architects and Building Designers for neutral coatings with industry leading
performance, and less exterior reflectance than previous VRE generations. Aesthetics were tailored to meld the traditional,
vibrant appearance of Viracon’s VRE coatings with current design trends. Now we bring this new, understated aspect to
VRE-3117, the newest member of the latest generation of VRE coatings. Learn more.
Best-In-Class Solar Performance with a Vibrant, Neutral-Graphite AppearanceViracon is excited to release VRE-4725, a high-performance solar control coating. With a Visible Light Transmission (VLT) of 47%, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of 0.25, Exterior Reflectivity of 25% and neutral to graphite reflected tones; Viracon affords architects yet another option to address all of their aesthetic and performance requirements.
Through a recently patented process, VRE-4725 was developed to meet the performance required in today’s demanding building environment. The aesthetics meld the traditional, vibrant appearance of Viracon’s VRE coatings with current design trends, bringing a new, understated aspect to the latest generation of VRE coatings. For more information, see VRE-4725.
Viracon is excited to announce a new mid iron substrate, Pure Mid Iron which offers improved clarity over standard clear glass at a favorable price compared to low iron glass.Pure Mid Iron is available in 1/4” (6mm), 5/16" (8mm) and 3/8" (10mm) thicknesses for use in monolithic, laminated and insulating glass unit configurations. Viracon’s high-performance proprietary coatings can be applied to Pure Mid Iron to achieve optimal performance and desired aesthetics.
VRE-65, VRE-59, VRE-54, VRE-46, VRE-38, VE-48 and VE-42 are now available in enhanced versions: VZRE-65, VZRE-59, VZRE-54, VZRE-46, VZRE-38, VZE-48 and VZE-42.By integrating innovative coatings development and manufacturing processes, Viracon has enhanced the performance of some of the best-selling coatings in our high-performance coating lineup. Enhanced VRE and Enhanced VE improve the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) 13% to 22% in a 1” dual pane insulating unit on clear glass over standard VRE and VE coatings. The Enhanced series deliver this significant improvement in solar management performance while maintaining the color-neutral aesthetics of the popular VRE and VE coatings.
Distinct crisp appearance with low exterior and interior reflectivity for great aestheticsVRE-4322, Viracon’s newest coating is now the best performing coating in the most popular coating family. With a Visible Light Transmission (VLT) of 43%, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of 0.22 and Exterior Reflectivity of 25% on clear glass combined with a neutral appearance, you now have a coating that meets all of your aesthetic and performance requirements. Architects and designers have been asking for a VRE coating that reduces exterior reflectivity and SHGC while still maintaining the same great VRE appearance that is featured on over 2,000 buildings around the world. Through a recently patented process, VRE-43 was developed to meet the performance needs required in today’s demanding building environment. The aesthetics were also tailored to meet current design trends of a vibrant appearance while bringing a new, understated level of reflectance to the VRE coating family.
Viracon is pleased to introduce Optigray® glass, a new warm-light gray glass. Optigray glass is designed to maximize light transmittance while balancing solar control performance while maximizing light transmittance. Introducing Optigray glass, Viracon’s newest substrate.
By applying one of Viracon’s high-performance coatings to Optigray glass you can achieve high levels of light transmission combined with a low solar heat gain coefficient. In addition, interior and exterior reflectivity are minimized creating an appealing solution for your next project.
Optigray is a registered trademark owned by Vitro.
Since the coating reflects radiant heat back into the room, this also lowers the interior glass surface temperature and therefore, creates potential for condensation to occur in high humidity environments.
Further evaluation is recommended for applications in cold climates with high humidity levels (i.e. greater than 30% relative humidity RH in winter), condensation resistance (CR) should be evaluated as a whole system design. Here are a few examples: Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Senior Housing, Laboratories, Swimming Pools and Museums.

In today’s tightening energy code environment we have been challenged by designers and developers to offer a low-emissivity coating with exceptional performance – a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of less than .20. Introducing Viracon VUE-30, our newest highperformance coated glass.With its high levels of transparency Viracon’s newest coating offers you the opportunity to maximize your window-to-wall ratio while maintaining performance that exceeds current domestic energy code requirements. Viracon VUE-30 provides natural daylight while reducing potential glare; balancing light with energy savings and low U-V transmittance. VUE-30 has superior solar performance with a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of .18 and Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) of 31% on clear glass resulting in an LSG of 1.72. VUE-30’s solar performance is complimented by a transparent appearance that designers have been asking for.
