PPG to supply windshields, cockpit side windows for Dassault Falcon 6X business jet

PPG will supply windshields and cockpit side windows to Dassault Aviation for the new Falcon 6X. This marks the first time PPG will supply flight-deck windows for a Dassault Aviation production program.

The Falcon 6X jet will be the largest and most advanced business jet ever built by Dassault Aviation and the first ultra-widebody business jet. The aircraft will be equipped with uniquely shaped, lightweight glass windshields and cockpit side windows by PPG.

PPG will produce the windshields and cockpit side windows for the Falcon 6X at its Huntsville, Alabama, plant. The transparencies will comprise three plies of optically clear PPG HERCULITE® II chemically strengthened glass for lightweight strength and reliability. Because the Falcon 6X jet will not be equipped with windshield wipers, PPG SURFACE SEAL® hydrophobic coating on the flight-deck windows will enhance water shedding for visibility.
