LAMINATED GLASS

Laminated glass is a type of sandwich glass in which a plastic film (PVB) of 0.38mm or more in multiples of that comes in two pieces of glass and is pressed at a specified temperature and later in pressure vessel called Autoclave to give the glass its unique properties.

The PVB sticks with the glass forming chemical as well as mechanical bonds. The PVB layer integrates itself with glass in case of breakage. Also it gives acoustic insulation as well it gives protection against damage caused due to UV radiations because it cuts almost 99% of UV radiation present in the sunlight. A laminated glass is regarded as a safety glass.

Laminated glass was invented in 1903 by French chemist, inspired by a laboratory accident. A glass flask has become coated with plastic cellulose nitrate and when dropped shattered but did not break into pieces. Benedictus fabricated a glass-plastic composite to reduce injuries in car accidents. However, it was not immideately adopted by automobiles manufacturers, and the first widerspread use of laminated glass was in the eyepieces of gas masks during World War I.

BENEFITS OF LAMINATED GLASS

• Safety
• Security
• Sound Reduction
• Solar Energy Control
• UV Control
• Protection from Weather and Natural Disasters
• Durability
• Low Visual distortions

PROPERTIES OF LAMINATED GLASS

Float glass in different thickness is basically used in the form of clear, tinted, reflective, tempered and heat strengthened glass. The PVB exhibits an extraordinary resistance in terms of UV transmission but does not reduce the visible light in the light spectrum.

PVB Thickness: 0.38mm, 0.76mm, 1.14mm, 1.52mm

PVB Colors: Clear & White. Other colors such as Gray, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red are available on request.
