Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. Once sealed together, the glass “sandwich” behaves as a single unit and looks like normal glass. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral, ethylene-vinyl acetate, or Thermoplastic Polyurethane, between its two or more layers of glass. Laminated glass is the only glass to provide durability, high performance and multi-functional benefits while at the same time preserving the aesthetic appearance of the glass.
Laminated Safety Glass is a tough, resilient glass which makes an excellent safety glazing material. Offers protection from forced entry and reduces risk of personal injury if broken.
Laminated glass is normally used when there is a possibility of human impact or where the glass could fall if shattered and also for architectural applications. Skylight glazing and automobile windshields typically use laminated glass. In geographical areas requiring hurricane-resistant construction, laminated glass is often used in exterior storefronts, curtain walls and windows.
• Laminated glass is also used to increase the sound insulation rating of a window, where it significantly improves sound attenuation compared to monolithic glass panes of the same thickness. For this purpose a special “acoustic PVB” compound is used for the interlayer. In the case of the EVA material, no additional acoustic material is required, since the EVA provides sound insulation. TPU is an elastic material, so sound absorption is intrinsic to its nature. An additional property of laminated glass for windows is that an adequate TPU, PVB or EVA interlayer can block essentially most ultraviolet radiation. A thermoset EVA could block up to 99.9% of all UV rays.
