With laminated glass you can create countless possibilities that meet your safety and design requirements. Laminated glass consists of a tough plastic interlayer made of PVB, EVA, or SGP bonded together between two panes of glass under heat and pressure. Once sealed together, the glass “sandwich” behaves as a single unit and appears to be standard glass. Annealed, heat strengthened, or tempered glass can be used to produce laminated glass. In the event the class cracks upon impact, the glass fragments tend to adhere to the plastic interlayer rather than falling free and potentially causing injury.
Laminated glass provides durability, high-performance and multi-functional benefits while at the same time preserving the aesthetic appearance of the glass. Laminated glass furnishes solutions to many architectural design problems and offers increased protection from the effects of both natural and other disasters such as hurricane, earthquake, and bomb blast. With the development of new products Laminated glass not only provide a safety component, it can be used as a decorative interlayer (Vanceva®) to boost any design. Sound control and UV protection are some of the many benefits to using laminated glass.
