Innovation, technology and high quality provide lighter weight, longer service life

We provide aircraft windshields and windows to the commercial, regional, military and general aviation segments. Design capabilities include glass, acrylic and polycarbonate substrates with advanced-technology coatings and liners for specific performance characteristics, heating systems to meet flight requirements, edge attachments for load-carrying capabilities and interlayers that adhere structural plies. PPG advancements include technology that revolutionized windshield weight and service life.

In October 2019, we completed the acquisition of Texstars, LLC, a manufacturer of high performance transparencies, wingtip lenses, and plastic components for aerospace and defense vehicles, and a leader in advanced coatings systems.
