Laminated glass is made of two or more two pieces of glass in which one layer or multi-layers of EVA/PVB/SGP with strong cohesion is sandwiched under high temperature and pressure between them. The appearance and installation method of laminated glass sandwiched with the transparent film is the same as normal glass but much more durable.
· Safety: The tenacity of EVA/PVB/SGP is fairly good. Laminated glass is hard to be penetrated and can remain integrally in the frame even when it is broken.
· Sound insulation: EVA/PVB/SGP can effectively prevent sound waves.
· Anti-UV: Laminated glass can effectively prevent UV (as high as more than 99% of UV)
· Anti-explosion: Multi-layer laminated glass can be made into various products of anti-explosion.
Due to its unique features, laminated glass can be extensively used in building skylight, elevated floor, high-grade curtain wall and window, furniture, showcase, aquarium, etc.
EVA laminated glass
The full name of EVA is ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer. As an EVA film for laminated glass, EVA has a lower melting temperature (at around 110°C) and good flowability compared to PVB or SGP. And the EVA interlayer allows for a high degree of customization, which means that the EVA laminated glass is easy to process to create decorative patterns and designs. Therefore, EVA laminated glass is an excellent option for color film laminated glass, clear textured glass, laminated glass bathroom partition, laminated glass interior door, laminated glass sliding windows, and more interior partitions/decorations.
SGP laminated glass
SGP (SentryGlas Plus) is another popular security laminate used in laminated glass, offering higher strength (5 times that of standard PVB), shear modulus as well as mechanical properties. At the same time, SGP laminated glass provides increased security and a more transparent appearance. For exterior glass with exposed edges, like frameless laminated glass balustrade, laminated safety glass, safety fence laminated glass, security laminated glass windows, etc., SGP laminated glass should be used to avoid discoloration and decomposition due to weathering.
PVB laminated glass
PVB (polyvinyl butyral) laminated glass is a type of safety glass comprising two or more sheets of glass bonded together by a layer of PVB interlayer. The interlayer acts as a bonding agent, keeping the glass layers together even when the glass is broken. In addition to providing safety, PVB interlayer can also help reduce noise transmission and block UV radiation. So, the PVB laminated glass is suitable for anti-uv glass, soundproof windows laminated glass, door laminated glass, custom laminated glass windows, etc.
PET laminated glass
PET interlayer is a thermoplastic polymer known for its excellent impact resistance and optical clarity. PET laminated glass is often used in applications where high durability and resistance to impact are required, such as in hurricane-prone areas or areas with a high risk of vandalism. Compared to PVB laminated glass, PET laminated glass has a higher impact resistance and can withstand more severe impacts without breaking - great for the laminated tempered glass railing, laminated glass for balustrade, laminated glass basement windows, tempered glass window panels, etc. Please feel free to contact us today for the best laminated glass door quotes!
