North America's Largest MSVD Oversized Glass Coater

On August 16, 2018 at its Wichita Falls, Texas, glass plant, Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) officially launched Coater7, North America’s largest magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) glass coater. A dramatic leap in glass coating technology, Coater7 is capable of producing Vitro’s full range of low-e MSVD coatings—and coatings yet to be conceived—on a range of glass substrates at various thicknesses. It also opens new avenues for glass coatings research and development.
